The Oldest Bar In North Carolina Has A Fascinating History
The oldest continuously serving bar in North Carolina sits inside Bistro Roca, in Blowing Rock, North Carolina. Antlers Bar opened its doors in 1932 serving spirits to appreciative folks ever since — which is interesting, as the prohibition of the manufacture and sale of liquors in the state was in effect from 1909 to 1935. Along the way renovations have come, keeping an eclectic balance of the rustic with the modern. And when you visit, the impressive portraits of local pets spanning 15 years will surely entertain you. You might even see one you know. Let’s see why Antlers Bar is still alive and well in this scenic Blue Ridge Parkway resort town.
