Green Door Tavern
Where we've featured it
Green Door Tavern has just the right amount of old man cranky tavern on the corner vibes, while still managing to be cool. The building was built approximately a million years ago in 1872, and it’s been a bar and restaurant for almost 100 years. Not only did it survive prohibition, but the basement functioned as a secret bar during those times. Today, the secret basement bar is a separate area known as The Drifter where you can get creative cocktails and catch a burlesque show. But we rely on the main floor of Green Door, where it’s always a laid-back good time.
No need for a fancy cocktail lounge after dinner. Head two doors down to Green Door Tavern, legitimately one of the oldest bars in the city. The building looks like it was built in 1825 by General Custer and used to be an actual prohibition tavern. Hang in the main bar area, or check out The Drifter in the basement, a speakeasy that serves as a throwback to the prohibition days.
