American | Springfield, Central Illinois

When in , the movers and shakers have gathered at a place called The Globe Tavern for over 200 years. Although the physical location has changed over the years, history repeats itself as The Globe Tavern is still known as a place of business and networking for politicians and a place of comfort and relaxation for tourists. It all began in the 1830's when Lincoln brought Mary Todd to the The Globe Tavern for their first date. As the years progressed, the food and beverage selection evolved. We now feature hand crafted specialty drinks and a rotating selection of premium draft beer. Seven flat screen televisions feature sports and news channels alike keeping tavern guests up to date and entertained. Sit back and stay a while for lunch, dinner, or a late evening appetizer.More
