Our Tap Room, originally built in 1735 as a schoolhouse, was attached to The Gris in 1801 by a team of oxen, rolling it on logs down Main Street. It has been called the most handsome barroom in America, the best-looking drinking room in America, and variations on this sentiment expressed by many. Certainly it is an original. We are open seven days a week and entertain every night with live music and a spirited atmosphere.

Tavern Fare is offered in our Tap Room seven days a week from 2:30 pm until 8:00 pm. Mondays through Saturdays popcorn,
cocktails and nightly entertainment may be enjoyed well beyond that!
