The Mule Tavern

Cheap Drinks Done Right

We are a dive bar at heart, but it is our thought that any bar should be able to make bad ass cocktails. Don’t be afraid to come in and ask us for an old fashion or a negroni. When we say cheap drinks done right, we mean it.
We don’t really like to talk about ourselves, so just get on your horse and come on down…

5 Star Dive Bars

KING 5 Evening

High quality doesn’t mean high prices at the Mule Tavern. Daily happy hour and quality drinks make this un-divey dive bar a Tacoma staple.

The Mule Tavern gets its name in part from our favorite cocktail, the Moscow Mule. We are proud to make our ginger beer fresh in house. We juice fresh ginger and lemons, add cane sugar and water, and then carbonate. That’s it! It’s a fresh, spicy, tart, and slightly sweet soda that is great on its own or as a mixer. Ask us about growlers to go.
