I have this strange idea that getting snowed into a bar could potentially be a ton of fun. On a snowy Sunday evening, my friend and I headed over to the Owl Bar in Mount Vernon to try and make my fantasy a reality.
The restaurant is located inside the Belvedere Hotel and has some really rich history. During prohibition, it was one of few speakeasies open. Inside there are plenty of owl themed decorations which goes nicely with the name. This is a place worth visiting for the history alone.
This was definitely a beer and burger kind of night. On the menu they advertised a yard of beer that they could fill with any of their beers on tap. After looking over the beer list (they had some nice options) we decided to share the Leinenkugel’s Sunset Wheat. It was nice and light and would go down smoothly with our burgers. The beer had notes of orange and blueberry, and a tart, citrusy finish. It went down smoothly and we made a great choice. When we ordered the drink, the waiter warned us that if we broke the glass it was a $50 charge. We made sure to be very careful with the glass.
For massive beers and great burgers, check out the Owl Bar in Mount Vernon. With the rich history of the place combined with the speakeasy vibe it still has going on, it also makes a great place for date night.
