That IS a nice bar!!

I built a flat (no 'L') false wall once- standard studded wood frame with drywall- and 'hung' it from the ceiling to keep it standing up (the base sat on the floor and probably had a couple screws to prevent swinging). I used 2 screw-hooks in the ceiling with rope to hold it vertical. Even had a door and still worked fine. A little spackle (ceiling) and wood putty (floor) took care of residual evidence when it was removed.

FYI- Fire codes come into play here and can bite you in the ass if the landlord is strict.. I'm no inspector, but if you leave a foot gap at the top for air circulation, a landlord shouldn't cringe (as much) if it's ever seen.
