BAR CLEETA was born out of a need for a neighborhood gathering spot that attracts both locals and visitors alike. Evoking metropolitan dining, the menu transports and encourages customization, allowing the diner to curate their own dining experience.
With over a decade of NYC, New Orleans and Los Angeles restaurant experience, husband-and-wife hospitality veterans Trae + Weisi Basore endeavor to bring a little taste of New York to Northwest Arkansas.

Really amazing that foos this good is found in Bentonville Arkansas. I’ve had food like this in NYC, San Francisco and Vail. This place was top notch. Wine selection was fantastic. I recommend the brisket, the asparagus and the duck app. Dessert was really incredible as well. Try the canned wine. It’s really special.
Fantastic food, great dining experience, exceptional service! Trae and Weisi have put together a remarkable experiential restaurant concept that was a truly enjoyable. Small sharable plates enable you to give the menu a real “test drive” without over committing. We started with the chefs choice cheese board, moved to asparagus tartare and radicchio/endive salads, then onto the mains which were to die for. Wagyu brisket and gnocchi are a must try. Signature cocktails are also a must try (Forefathers and The Fruit Baskets are favorites).
