You can change the x-values so the bars overlap, or change the barw()
option so they overlap, or some combination of the two.  Is that not
what you had in mind?
. sysuse sp500, clear
. twoway bar high date in 1/4, yla(1300(20)1340) barw(1.5)
. replace date= date+(2-_n)/3 in 1/4
. twoway bar high date in 1/4, yla(1300(20)1340)
