Side Menu Bar with sub-menu using HTML CSS & Javascript

Hello readers, Today in this blog you’ll learn how to create a Side Menu Bar with a sub-menu using HTML CSS & JavaScript. Earlier I have shared a Side Navigation Menu Bar without a sub-menu, but my viewers requested me many times to create a Side Bar Menu with a submenu, now it’s time to create a Side Menu Bar with a submenu or dropdown menu.

A drop-down menu is a horizontal list of menu options that each contain a vertical menu. When you hover or click one of the primary options in a drop-down menu, a list of choices will “drop down” below the main menu. The most common type of drop-down menu is a menu bar or Navigation Menu bar.

Today in this blog, I’ll share with you this program (Side Menu Bar with sub-menu). At first, there is only a button and this sidebar menu is hidden. But when you clicked on that button then this sidebar will be shown by sliding from the left side. In the menus, there is a cool hover effect too.


That means when you hovered on the specific item, a small line will appear on the left side of that list, and also the color of that item becomes cyan as you can see in the image.

If you’re feeling difficult to understand what I am saying. You can watch a full video tutorial on this program (Side Menu Bar with sub-menu).

  2. Hi guy! already thank you for your work it's great! I am working with your menu for a school project and I found a small bug when you select a submenu and then another menu, this one remains active. So I added this line which seems to correct everything.
    $('nav ul li').click(function(){
    $('nav ul li').removeClass("active");
    $(this).addClass("active").siblings().removeClass("active");
    });
