The Cottage Bar, originally “The Cottage” first opened in 1927 and is the oldest operating bar and restaurant downtown Grand Rapids. We like to call it one of GR’s hidden gems, located off LaGrave Avenue just South of Fulton, tucked away behind its sister restaurant - One Trick Pony. With the Art Deco mahogany bar, and the warm/casual ambiance, you can feel years of history within the walls.
Enjoy an array of mixed drinks or a local brew with one of their many mouthwatering burgers or sandwiches. Our top pick is the classic pulled pork sandwich with a side of homemade slaw, and their crunchy sweet potato fries... For extra "yum factor" make sure you get them with a side of cinnamon yogurt dipping sauce :) Other popular menu items include their wet burrito, the cottage burger, and the cottage wedge fries. A great place for a casual lunch or dinner, a gathering with friends, or a late night burger while you hop around town. Their convenient location near the heart of downtown puts you within walking distance of many of GR's popular bars on Ionia Street, Van Andel Arena, as well as the Urban Institute for Urban Art, and the Civic Theatre.
