THE LOUNGE

The Tavern Lounge is located on the main level of the Archer House River Inn. Open seven days a week, the Lounge offers a full bar with craft beers and specialty cocktails, along with a tasty appetizer menu. The cozy, casual atmosphere draws college students, locals, and tourists alike, creating the perfect setting for catching up with friends or relaxing and enjoying a good book.

The Lounge is also a popular destination for great live music, presented Thursday through Saturday evenings, and featuring some of Minnesota's best musicians.

In warm months, the Lounge's outdoor deck overlooking the Cannon River is the perfect place in Northfield to sit outside and enjoy a beverage and the view.

Lounge Hours: 4 pm until Midnight, 7 days a week
Live Music: Thursdays, Fridays & Saturdays beginning at 8 pm
