This Mercer County Bar Is One Of The Oldest In New Jersey
I found a list of the oldest bars throughout New Jersey and was so excited to see a familiar building pop up!
I found a list on New Jersey Digest that picked apart the top 10 oldest bars throughout the Garden State and sure enough a well-known pub that sits in the heart of Princeton, New Jersey is on the list!
One of the oldest bars in New Jersey is the Yankee Doodle Tap Room in Princeton, NJ. If you've never seen or heard of it before, it's a little bar located at the Nassau Inn. If you aren't sure where that is, it's right in the heart of Palmer's Square.
Obviously, a ton of changes have been made throughout the years to this pub, but it was built back in 1756 and has remained a pub all these years. According to NJ Digest, "The Yankee Doodle Tap Room was first developed as a drinking club for male Princeton students and faculty and is visited by prominent alumni and famous historical figures."
The Yankee Doodle Tap Room has been around for over 250 years and still draws in a crowd! If you've never been inside, it has a really warm and inviting atmosphere and is just the perfect place for a quiet drink in the heart of Princeton, NJ.
The oldest bar in New Jersey is said to be The Cedar Bridge Tavern in Barnegat.
That was built in 1740, so the Yankee Doodle Tap Room wasn't too far behind! The Yankee Doodle Tap Room is located inside the Nassau Inn and is located at 10 Palmer Square E, Princeton, NJ, 08542.
