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.
