What is “bard”?

This bar has a rather unique name – “Bard” – and the word itself has several meanings. The word is of Irish origin and means “singer” – medieval court or tribal Celtic poet singer of heroic songs in Ireland, Scotland, Wales, and Brittany. Accompanied by a musical instrument called the lyre, bards sang at festivals about divine and heroic deeds and undertakings, encouraging courage or emotion. Later, in the 18th century, the term “bard” was expanded, and it can also be used for prominent national poets, or writers, and for the most outstanding representatives in art, profession, or politics – for example, Shakespeare is often referred to as the bard of literature. That said, the word “bard” can also be used to refer to someone who is the best in a certain field, which is why the owner of this bar, Tonći Tkalec, named his bar “Bard” – because he thinks he has created something worthwhile.
