The Old Dog Tavern opened in January 2010 and is located in the historic Star Building at 402 E Kalamazoo Ave, in Kalamazoo, Michigan. We are directly across the street from Bell’s Brewery and Water Street Coffee Joint—right next to the railroad tracks.

Old Dog Tavern is owned and operated by Kalamazoo locals Sean and Amy Smith, with an aire for all things eclectic, odd and quirky.
