Kick back with a drink and some wings in our newly renovated upstairs bar. Redesigned in a modern vintage industrial style, it maintains the well-known original bar from Oliver’s Tavern. The bar, retrofitted for additional space, was originally built in 1913 for a bar in Chicago where Al Capone is rumored to have regularly tipped a glass.

Your Favorite Neighborhood Bar

Enjoy selections from our carefully curated wine list, special cocktails, single malt scotch or local craft beer. We offer our full menu upstairs with plenty of seating, all in full view of the panoramic TV’s showcasing your favorite sports teams. For those looking to compete in the games themselves, be sure to check out our new game room with full glass wall so you don’t miss the latest game score on TV.

Join us for Happy Hour Monday through Friday from 3:00pm – 6:00pm. Enjoy $4.00 off marked appetizer items (see our menu page) and $2.00 off beer, wines by the glass and cocktails.
