Located in the heart of the Old Market of Omaha, The Tavern is your downtown neighborhood bar. We are a place of no pretense and a social leveller. Whether you want to drink a can of Budweiser or a bottle of Dom PĂ©rignon, everyone is equal here.

The Tavern, like the community we exist in, welcomes people from all walks of life to enjoy what we do best...
beer, bubbly, craft cocktails and spirits!





The bar is owned by David Kerr, a Scottish import (like some of our beers) and co-managed by Brian Heese, an Omaha local.


Pull up a stool at our 105-year-old Brunswick bar and enjoy the 25-foot mahogany beauty. This antique bar once sat in the Muehlebach Hotel in downtown Kansas City until the 1980s. During it's time in KC, the hotel hosted many famous guests, including Elvis Presley, The Beatles, Babe Ruth and every US president from Theodore Roosevelt to Ronald Reagan. These guests likely pulled up a stool at the bar, just like you can today, but in Omaha.


The Tavern is located in the Windsor Square building formerly known as The Windsor Hotel (see below). Built in 1885, it was designed to be a 'workingman's hotel', and with its proximity to both Union and Burlington train stations, it soon became a place for railroad passengers to enjoy drinks during their layovers.
