Welcome to the Magnolia Bar

“Beer is proof that God loves us and wants us to be happy.”
-Benjamin Franklin


Established in 1962, the Magnolia Bar, or Mag Bar as it is colloquially known, has been an Old Louisville fixture for generations. Playing host to kings, queens, saints and scoundrels, the Mag Bar’s colorful neon glow has been a beacon to thirsty souls the world over. Boasting an impressive list of fine libations as well as an equally eclectic collection of colorful characters, our hallowed halls live up to the reputation of one of the world’s greatest watering holes.

Always open, often irregular. Cheers!
