Old Dog Tavern is a restaurant, bar, and venue that was founded in January 2010 by Amy and Sean Smith.
This ever-evolving spot, located in the historic Star Paper Co. building, is dedicated to providing a unique restaurant experience in Kalamazoo. Old Dog enjoys collaborating with its family of talented employees and members of the community in building a relaxed and entertaining environment.
Behind the bar, you will find a consistent rotation of Michigan craft brews and a passionate cocktail program from the mind of more than one Old Dog employee. In the kitchen, Chef Rob Zimmer and his crew are preparing meals using fresh, local ingredients. Old Dog Tavern houses a variety of talented artists and musicians, and plenty of unique spaces to host your own event. And yes, there is free ping-pong and pinball. Cheers!
