Yellow Dog Tavern
Yellow Dog Tavern first opened its doors on June 6, 2010. The tavern opened during the 24th birthday of the owner George Hughes. It has always been Hughes’s dream to open a bar of his own. He was working as a gym trainer at that time. With every penny he saved, he used to build this bar. To his surprise, the tavern took off, not a lazy night and people keep coming back for more. Many of them are fond of the place because of the chill vibes and great service of course, not to mention they have open mic nights every night. Tavern being such a raging success the founder decided to build up another branch in Canada.
