Newtown is known for its beautiful streets, quaint shopping, and its historic feel. One of the places that is very apparent is The Black Horse Tavern. The Black Horse is only three and half years old but the building and rich history are far older giving it that historic and hometown feel. But don’t let that fool you that fool you, The Black Horse is a versatile restaurant, piano bar, garden patio eatery, and a rocking club with live music and DJ’s throughout the week.
It starts when you walk in the front door, you can go to the left and hit the main bar where every Friday night a classic rock band entertains and rock the night away from 9pm to 2am. It’s also where you can find 31 different types of beer, 24 on tap with over 15 craft beers that they change out frequently to give you a full range of tastes. They also carry all types of alcohol from wells to the high end whiskeys, tequilas, and rums.
You could also head off to the right and go upstairs to the restaurant to sample some of their amazing cuisine including their well-known Steak Coulette or their phenomenal Smoked Duck. They have a different food special every day of the week and they offer ten percent off of cash purchases of $25 or more.
They run drink specials every day of the week and they have an amazing Happy Hour from 5 until 7 pm. During Happy Hour they also have complimentary hors orderves, $3 beer, draft and bottle, $4 wine, and $6 martinis. They also have a special ginger, lime martini called Jaytini after their very own bartender who created it.
The family owned bar boasts their unique approach to the experience you can have in their establishment. Only only do they have a great bar with live rock music but upstairs they host a piano bar, in a beautiful and relaxed setting. On Wednesdays from 7 to 10 pm they have Jazz Night in that room that gives a 1920’s, almost Great Gatsby feel. It has its own full bar with seating as well as seating at the piano and comfortable leather chairs around the room. Perfect for anything from a first date, to a romantic drink, or a casual meeting among friends. The atmosphere is light and beautiful to go along with the music.
The Black Horse has played host to a wide, varying array of large parties and weddings. They can do anything from dress rehearsal dinners, to Bar and Bat Mitzvahs, to weddings and large family gatherings. They are currently finishing up construction on their new patio area which will be open by the mid-September. The patio will have a full bar and food service through their wonderful and friendly staff.
The owners and staff want everyone that comes into The Black Horse Tavern to leave having experienced not only the pride they have in their food; but also to have experienced the character of the building and the concept behind each one of the unique rooms they have created.
