...featuring an antique marble and oak bar with classical European draught selections, including obscure German, Belgian, and British Isles Beers which are deftly paired with authentic Palazzo dishes.
The owners' nostalgia for history and reverence for the Colonial period of the Quail Mansion led to the construction of the Tavern bar. The bar countertop was made from antique marble salvaged from an old school in Pittsburgh. In keeping with the home's history, 200 year-old Oak barn siding was reclaimed and finished to build the body of the bar, providing a warm welcome to Tavern patrons.
The Tavern's Pre-Prohibition era Specialty Drink List constantly evolves with a chef-inspired bartending style—including the use of a Ra Chand French juice press, simple syrups created by the chef, fresh-muddled seasonal ingredients, and a highly skilled bartender who puts on a spectacular show with his elaborate menu and blow torch.
