The atmosphere is about as laid back as it gets, which is why it is such a big hit with the locals. Large wood tables that seat six to eight people are both inside and outside on the patio with large art murals all over the walls. There's always great music being played at a volume loud enough to enjoy or even dance to, but not so loud that you can't carry on a conversation.
Wood Tavern's motto is "no pretensions," so you'll see just about every type of person on the planet here - hipsters (you ARE in the art district), every race, every ethnicity, every age group. People even bring their dogs! It's a great place to hang out and people watch.
Don't bother trying to get a reservation; they don't take them at Wood Tavern. It's first come, first served here. The beer menu is outstanding with a constantly changing craft beer menu. You'll find a couple of brand names at Wood Tavern but people really come to enjoy something different here.
A full service bar, they've got some pretty great drink specials, depending on when you go and typical bar fare if you're feeling hungry. Nothing special; nothing outrageous; just good food and drinks enjoyed in good company and served by people who feel like friends.
Stop by on Tuesday for their free tacos. On Wednesdays, ladies drink free. If you like to let loose, their Sunday Backyard Boogie is super popular with drink specials and fun music going on the whole time.
Amigo's Car Rental's Geraldine loves this place because the prices are decent and the people are cool. She loves to chat with friends while playing a game of Jenga and says there are few places as great as Wood Tavern for people watching.
If you long for a place that reminds you of hanging out with friends in the basement or backyard, grooving to tunes, Wood Tavern is definitely the place to be. Bring your friends or meet some new ones!
