The Roman Catholic Archdiocese of Bar is an ecclesiastical territory or diocese of the Roman Catholic Church in Montenegro. It is centred in the city of Bar (Italian "Antivari"). It was erected as a diocese in the 9th century and elevated to an archdiocese in 1089. The Archbishops regularly wear titles of "Serbian Primates" ("Primas Serbiae"), implemented as a permanent part of the title by Archbishop Stephen Tegliatti.

The archdiocese's cathedral is the Cathedral of the Immaculate Conception in Bar. Zef Gashi currently serves as Archbishop in the archdiocese. Since the death of Bishop Marko Sopi of Kosovo's Prizren Diocese, Gashi has also served as its administrator.

The Catholics of this Archdiocese are mostly located on littoral (Bar, Ulcinj) and some small communities of Catholics in cities like Nikšić and Cetinje. The Church's faithful are mostly ethnic Albanians, as well as its current Archbishop, while the second by numbers are Croats (mostly on Littoral).

In 1923, Traboin, Tuzi, Grude, and Klezna were added to the Archbishopric from the Roman Catholic Archdiocese of Shkodër (Scutari). In 1969, the territory of the municipalities of Plav, Gusinje, and Militarian Settlements were added to the Archbishopric from the Roman Catholic Archdiocese of Skopje.
