My friend building a nice bar is a lot different than building a pergola that can fall on folks and injure them. I would follow the suggestion of talking to your local building department and perhaps taking them your drawing of what you intend to do. That would be a lot safer than asking folks on line how to do things because we know how we would build it in our area but your area might have totally different building codes and if you don’t follow the codes in your area the building department can make your tear it down or fine you or both. Good luck on your project.
