WordPress 3.8 is out I have the following code to remove admin bar logo.

 function no_wp_logo_admin_bar_remove() {
    global $wp_admin_bar;
add_action('wp_before_admin_bar_render', 'no_wp_logo_admin_bar_remove', 0);

However I would like to know how can I replace it with my own logo (upload) and not a dashicon?

That's controlled by a Dashicon (font icon) and a before statement:

#wpadminbar #wp-admin-bar-wp-logo > .ab-item .ab-icon:before {
content: '\f120';
top: 2px;

What you'd want is to replace the content call.

Use a built in Dashicon from here: http://melchoyce.github.io/dashicons/

So the smilie would be content: '\f328;`

But as the question asks, what about a specialized image that you uploaded? Not a built in icon. – Howdy_McGee Dec 12 '13 at 22:09
Change the content to put an image in. content: url(image.jpg); (The question said 'logo' not 'image' so I didn't presume, and figured they could look up how to use before and content :) ) – Ipstenu Dec 12 '13 at 22:21

You may place your own logo there like this:

function custom_admin_logo(){
    echo '
        <style type="text/css">
            #wp-admin-bar-wp-logo .ab-icon:before{ content:"" !important; }
            #wp-admin-bar-wp-logo .ab-icon{ background-image: url(path/to/your/logo.png) !important; }
add_action( 'admin_head', 'custom_admin_logo' );

But, if you wanted to completely remove the corresponding Wordpress menu, including the W logo and its sub-menu stuff and then add your ownlogo, You may do it like this:

function remove_wp_logo( $wp_admin_bar ){
    $wp_admin_bar->remove_node( 'wp-logo' );
add_action( 'admin_bar_menu', 'remove_wp_logo', 100 );

function add_my_own_logo( $wp_admin_bar ) {
    $args = array(
        'id'    => 'my-logo',
        'meta'  => array( 'class' => 'my-logo', 'title' => 'logo' )
    $wp_admin_bar->add_node( $args );
add_action( 'admin_bar_menu', 'add_my_own_logo', 1 );

Then let some CSS do the remaining part for you:

.my-logo div{
    width: 32px;
    height: 32px;
    background-image: url( path/to/logo.png ) no-repeat;
