Truckee Tavern

Truckee Tavern is located in historic downtown Truckee, and strives to instill a sense of place for all visitors by providing locally-sourced ingredients in its seasonally changing menu. Their specialty is wood fired cuisine featuring locally grown produce and meats. Seasonal offerings and consistent menu favorites are expertly paired with the finest wine, spirit and beer selections. Truckee Tavern’s spirit options draw from Truckee’s rich history of bootlegging during prohibition and focus on artisanal small batch gin and whiskey, the two main distillation products from Truckee during that era. These are complemented by a thoughtfully chosen selection of fine rum, vodka, brandy, tequila, mescal, liquors and cordials, all enhancing the overall experience. Cocktails utilize fresh herbs, juices and house made concoctions, while the wine list specializes in a mix of hard to find producers as well as known names that complement the food.

Truckee Tavern's second floor location has a beautiful indoor dining room as well as stunning outdoor seating that overlooks downtown and the Truckee River. Nightly specials include: happy hour from 4:30-6pm Sundays through Thursdays; Wednesday Wine Night (all night); and Thursday Burgers and Beers (all night). With frequent live music and events, Truckee Tavern is sure to provide a great night out full of local Truckee style!
