Bar Review: The Coopers Tavern

Posted on

Cooper's TavernLocated on the Capitol Square, The Coopers Tavern is a great place to go to when you’re looking for a relaxing night outside. Its outdoor patio provides an up-close view of the Capitol, which is impossible to look away from when lit up at night. But don’t let the colder weather stop you from visiting Coopers. Inside, the bar itself is well-lit by candles and is relatively small, but the beer and wine list seems endless. Flipping through pages and pages of craft beers and wines, the extensive menu can almost be overwhelming. Some beers seem a little overpriced, but whether you choose to drink Monty Python’s Holy Grail, Cooper’s Sparkling Ale or Lake Louie Kiss the Lips, you won’t be disappointed.

The bar offers weekend brunch and lunch, dinner and late night meals daily, serving comfort favorites like Poutine, a serving of fries and cheese curds topped with gravy, and the Sconnie Egg, a hard-boiled egg wrapped in a brat patty and fried. No matter what time of day, the Coopers Tavern is an excellent place to try something new whether you’re stopping in for a drink or a meal.
