Venue Info

West Liberty's Old Town Tavern lives in a space that's been a saloon since 1898 (known back in the day as The Bismark), and has been quenching U of M student cravings for beer under this name for over 40 years. The atmosphere is casual and familiar in the wood- and brick-filled space, which is part of the reason Old Town remains one of the "townie" bars that refuses to vanish. It feels like an old-school hangout: back-slaps are given over local and imported craft beers under the stained glass lamps that hang from the space's antique tin ceilings. The decor hasn't changed since anyone can remember (yes, that painting of a nude lady still hangs), and the burger is still arguably the best in town.
