Bismarck’s Peacock Alley is North Dakota’s Oldest Bar
From Laughing Sun to The Walrus to The Blarney Stone, Bismarck is full of great places to grab a cold drink. Did you know, though, that North Dakota's oldest bar is located right here in Bismarck, too?
The folks over at Thrillist put together a list of the oldest bars in every single state and Peacock Alley in downtown Bismarck is North Dakota's oldest bar.
Established in 1933, here's what Thrillist had to say about North Dakota's oldest bar:
In addition to being the oldest bar in North Dakota, it is also, by far, the wold's best bar located below a senior center. We dare you to find a better one. Originally the bar for the Patterson Hotel, the hotel was later converted to senior living, making the now hotel-less watering hole a convenient pick-up spot for the swinging singles who live upstairs. Before the change, Peacock Alley hosted such famous patrons as JFK, Joe Louis, Teddy Roosevelt, and Lyndon Johnson.
Peacock Alley is located at 422 E. Main Ave. in Bismarck. For more information on Peacock Alley, you can visit their official website HERE.
Oh, and just so you know, the oldest bar in the country is the White Horse Tavern, located in Newport, Rhode Island. It was established all the way back in 1673 and was once run by a pirate!
