The Tree Bar

Open April-October

Friday 3-9 pm

Saturday 12-9 pm

Sunday 12-8 pm

The Tree Bar is a totally unique outdoor drinking experience.

Built in the woods, with trees harvested from our woods; this is the bar

we've been dreaming of since the beginning.

We spend our lives working and playing outdoors, and The Tree Bar is our

chance to showcase the best parts of a life lived outside.
