Thank you to the Grand Rapids community for all your support during the coronavirus pandemic quarantine. As Michigan begins to reopen, we are making plans to do the same. We will be reopening with a two-phase plan:

Phase 1: Reopen the Cottage Bar as soon as the governor’s stay-at-home mandate allows. We are shooting for early June. The Cottage will be operating at 50% capacity, per state regulations. Our staff is working to utilize all precautionary procedures to ensure a safe and enjoyable atmosphere. We will update you with a reopening date as soon as possible.

Phase 2: Reopen One Trick Pony. We will announce a timeline for that as things progress. For the time being, One Trick Pony will continue with the temporary closure.

We are taking this one day at a time, as the landscape continues to change seemingly every moment. We miss all of you and hope to see you soon!

Welcome to The Cottage Bar & Restaurant

A Grand Rapids tradition since 1927, we are proud to be the oldest operating bar and restaurant downtown. Known for our casual charm and down to earth atmosphere, we're famous for having the city's best burgers, and three different styles of award winning chili.

The Cottage Burger was recently voted best burger in Michigan by USA Today.

We also offer a full dinner menu and outside cafe (during the summer months). You don't need reservations to stop in for some great  food and drink, so join us for lunch or dinner.
