First pour: 1681
It's a shame that one of the country's oldest taverns, the Broad Axe Tavern, closed in 2019, having first begun operations in 1681. But considering the Philadelphia area is one of the oldest in the nation, the King George Inn, which opened the same year, is happy to take over the title for the city.
It's also the oldest continuously operating inn in America. With its beginnings entrenched in British founding, the bar and other items within this property hailed from England and came across the ocean with settlers.
