Try something like this —
A = (5+rand(10))/6;
figure
hb = bar(A);
for k = 1:numel(hb)
xep(k,:) = hb(k).XEndPoints;
end
L = min(xep);
R = max(xep);
hold on
plot([L(:) R(:)], [1 1]*0.75, '-k', 'LineWidth',3)
hold off
figure
hb = bar(A);
for k = 1:numel(hb)
xep(k,:) = hb(k).XEndPoints;
end
L = min(xep);
R = max(xep);
hold on
plot([L(:) R(:)], [1 1]*0.75, '-k', 'LineWidth',3)
hold off
xlim([0.5 2.5])
Make appropriate changes to get the result you want.

To extend the lines to cover all the bars in each group (rather than stopping at the midpoints), use the normalised ‘Barwidth’ data as well to extend it —
A = (5+rand(10))/6;
figure
hb = bar(A);
BW = hb.BarWidth
BW = 0.8000
for k = 1:numel(hb)
xep(k,:) = hb(k).XEndPoints;
end
L = min(xep);
R = max(xep);
hold on
plot([L(:) R(:)]+[-0.5 0.5]*BW/numel(hb), [1 1]*0.75, '-k', 'LineWidth',3)
hold off
figure
hb = bar(A);
BW = hb.BarWidth;
for k = 1:numel(hb)
xep(k,:) = hb(k).XEndPoints;
end
L = min(xep);
R = max(xep);
hold on
plot([L(:) R(:)]+[-0.5 0.5]*BW/numel(hb), [1 1]*0.75, '-k', 'LineWidth',3)
hold off
xlim([0.5 2.5])

Here's a demo -
%Random data
mat = randi([11 19], 4, 6);
%Bar plot
b = bar(mat);
hold on
%Get the x-coordinates of each group (center of each bar)
%Each column represents the x-coordinates of each bar group
x = vertcat(b.XEndPoints)
x = 6×4
0.6667 1.6667 2.6667 3.6667 0.8000 1.8000 2.8000 3.8000 0.9333 1.9333 2.9333 3.9333 1.0667 2.0667 3.0667 4.0667 1.2000 2.2000 3.2000 4.2000 1.3333 2.3333 3.3333 4.3333
%Get the coordinates of the end points
x = x([1 end],:).'
x = 4×2
0.6667 1.3333 1.6667 2.3333 2.6667 3.3333 3.6667 4.3333
plot(x, [5 5], 'LineWidth', 2.5, 'Color', 'k');
hold off

Thank you very much for your help, your solution also works perfectly, however i used the other solution provided by Mr. Star Strider. Thank you once again
