Reflecting the warm and welcoming atmosphere of a neighborhood bar and eatery, The 1947 Tavern is a contemporary twist to the old fashioned tavern.

It's name pays homage to the original joint, The Elbow Room, a popular neighborhood restaurant that opened in this location in 1947.

At 1947 Tavern, guests enjoy an intimate and comfortable room 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 an 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.
