The bar entrance area fronts Greenville Avenue, but traffic is usually reasonable.

First review
The Libertine Bar is a single business, low-key, and slightly eclectic bar and restaurant in Lower Greenville, which is home to a number of similar establishments. Libertine opened in 2006. The bar is known for specialty regional brews on tap, and the restaurant draws a following for weekend brunch. The customer mix varies a bit by time of day but is generally younger and more casual.

In case you were wondering, the slightly edgy word libertine means a person who is unconstrained by moral norms, especially in sexual matters. With that aside, the bar has a fairly small footprint. There is a bar on the left with about 20 bar stools, 15 or so tables on the right and a few booths in the back near the bathrooms. It can be close quarters here, especially during dinner from 7:00-9:00pm, after midnight, and during peak brunch times, so hold onto your barstool tightly. Parking in Lower Greenville can be tricky at times too. The entire Trader Joe’s lot is open after 9:00pm.

On a Thursday evening around 8:00pm there were a few open barstools but all the tables were full. The all-female bar staff was pleasant and professional. They offered drink suggestions and responded quickly to requests. Libertine has vegetarian burgers, but it was unclear if they were cooked separately from the meat so went with finger food instead. A combination plate of regular and sweet potatoe fries was an ample portion, not greasy and fairly tasty. Drinks included a Corpse Reviver #2, a Perfect Manhattan, and The Last Word. The portions were smaller and drink quality varied. The Last Word and Perfect Manhattan were above average with fine Green Chartreuse and whiskey, respectively. The Corpse Reviver #2 had an overly citrus taste, a little too sweet. As a neighborhood bar, Libertine can fit the bill for a comfortable and casual watering hole during off-peak hours. The bar’s size though is not well suited for busier times. The brunch menu looked enticing enough for a return visit one day for brunch.

Came back here on a Thursday night after work, it was still crowded but the staff were nice, the french fries were still quite good and ordered a couple of the last words per the batender's recommendations and they went down smooth and satisfying. Also the corn soup was first rate. Good place.
