1947 TavernAn Old Fashioned Tavern With A Contemporary Twist

About Us

Reflecting the warm and welcoming atmosphere of a neighborhood bar and eatery, The 1947 Tavern is a contemporary twist on the old fashioned tavern. Its name pays homage to the original joint, The Elbo...w Room, which opened in this very location in 1947. At 1947 Tavern, enjoy an intimate and comfortable atmosphere with plenty of bar and booth seating. Sip on an expertly made cocktail or choose from an extensive bourbon selection. Select a new varietal from our approachable wine list, or sample a new craft or Belgium beer available on tap or in bottle. Dine from a first rate tavern menu that combines comfort foods, house smoked meats, small plates intended for sharing and homemade desserts. Some of our featured items include the soon to be famous French Dip and Mac ‘n Cheese for grown ups.

Amazing fries, but unfortunately the cheese plate's baguette was a bit too garlicky and there weren't any olives (or sweet pickles or honey mustard, but I really just missed the olives...) included, despite what the menu said. :(
