If you’re looking for an authentic tavern cuisine and rustic ambiance, Scotch Plains Tavern is the place to be. Located minutes from Essex Steam Train, Rt. 9, and I-95, guests can kick back with a drink and some wings in our newly renovated upstairs bar, redesigned in a modern vintage industrial style while maintaining the original bar from Oliver’s Tavern. The bar, retrofitted for additional space, was originally built in 1913 for a bar in Chicago where Al Capone is rumored to have regularly tipped a glass.
Enter into Scotch Plains Tavern through the iconic scotch barrel doors (a good spot for a selfie) and our hostess will happily seat you in our downstairs dining room, outside patio or upstairs in our industrial-themed bar. For private parties and celebrations we invite you into our private dining room, bathed in sunlight from four sets of french doors.
