A bar is a piece longer than thick , made of metal , wood or other material, which is usually cylindrical or prismatic. This term has multiple uses depending on the context, since there is a wide variety of bars.

The bar can be the counter from a bar or similar store. In the case of bars or some restaurants, the bar is used as a table so that the client, whether standing or sitting on a stool, can eat or drink something. For example: “My grandfather spent hours and hours at the bar, drinking wine with his friends and discussing football”, “We go to the bar so we ask for drinks”, “I ate a slice of pizza at the bar and then went to the office”.

In Latin America , the notion of bar is used to name the public who attends the sessions of an assembly or court, the swollen of an athlete or sports team and at Group of friends that meets frequently: "The judge had to ask the bar for silence on several occasions", “Deportivo San Pedro's bar caused serious incidents at the stadium gate”, “Tomorrow I will have dinner with the bar to celebrate Luis's birthday”.

In addition to all of the above we can not overlook that bar is a word that is frequently used in what would be computing. And that is the name given to all those rectangles full of icons that serve to carry out different operations both within a word processor and a spreadsheet and even while surfing the Internet.

In this regard there are many types of bars, although the tools, the menu, the favorites, the commands or even the status ones take special prominence.

Nor can we forget that bar is also part of the name of an old sport that was practiced in Spain and that today remains in some areas as a tradition. We are referring to the Castilian bar, which is typical of the autonomous community of Castilla y León.

That basically is that the person who practices it, being within a square delimited on the ground, should throw as far as possible an iron bar that has dimensions of 75 centimeters in length. In this way, the participant who, complying with the rest of the established norms, will be able to achieve that his bar is the one that reaches the furthest of all.

On the other hand, we cannot ignore that in the Spanish province of Pontevedra there is the well-known Barra Beach, which is framed within the town of Cangas de Morrazo and is composed of fine golden sand.

A bar, on the other hand, can be a iron lever which is used to move heavy things: "Hit me the bar so we run this box", "I need a bar to force the door".

He gold roll or other unworked metal ("Juan has a gold bar in his safe") and the graphic sign vertical or oblique that is used, in the writing , to separate (“Marcelo is my friend / boyfriend for many years”) are other uses of the bar concept.
