De Vaucouleurs Atlas Description:

The bar is a well-defined oval surrounded by a very weak inner ring , and the galaxy is a very good example of the SAB family . In a deprojected image, the ring is very nearly circular and slightly underfilled by the oval. NGC 6384 is also an excellent example of the multi-armed Sbc type.
