The legendary Tony, of Tony’s Downtown Bar, our name sake, was a Milwaukee, Wisconsin native. This, of course, means he is a huge Packer fan, so, opening a Midwestern tavern with a Wisconsin Packer theme was a no-brainer for this cheesehead. Tony opened the doors to our beloved tavern December 17, 1999. At that time we were located at 311 North Tejon street in what was formerly a small boutique many natives recall as the Lotus Eater. When the tavern first opened, it was also the first of it’s kind in downtown Colorado Springs. The city had so many restaurants that were also microbreweries and served large portions of meals with fancy presentations along with equally upscale price tags, giving us a real advantage to being the first true-to-form burger joint with no frills or high class get ups –with cheap beer to match! Who doesn’t love a dive hole in the wall bar? That’s just what we have always been. We all know the saying “if it’s not broke, don’t fix it.” So that is exactly what we have done. Over the course of nearly eighteen years, much has stayed just as Tony had intended it to be. Our Wisconsin theme still holds strong. We are the official headquarters for any Colorado Springs Packer fan. We even own shares of the team as of five years ago, providing the same classic Midwestern menu, and most importantly the cheapest beer selection around the downtown area. So let us hear a GO PACK GO! We are looking forward to getting to know you down at Tony’s.
