Venue Info

Sporting a rare dual-liquor license grandfathered from 1905, this historic downtown dive still lets you grab a six-er on your way out the door from the “liquor to go” nook currently curated by the craft obsessed “Beer Chicks”. The Gopher survived prohibition like some other classic watering holes by selling "near beer" and “medicinal” bitters, but remained dusty until receiving an overhaul in 2004 with table-top Galaga and pool table.
