Est. 1919, the Hawk was traditionally the freshman bar (a.k.a the underage bar, a.k.a. if you're 16 this is your best shot at beer bar), but has since reformed. The Hawk ended its 18-and-over nights, but still has the dance floor and a DJ on the weekends. With the opening of the Wheel-esque Pine Room, the Martini Room and the Underground, the Hawk is attracting legal drinkers and even some established drinkers (and not just the ones out for an easy hook-up). In the warmer months the Hawk features a patio in the back with it's own bar. If you gave up on this place when you actually turned 21, you should give it another look.

The outside patio is heated and covered with seating. The bar on the patio will be open all winter.

You may request that the bar open early for a private party by contacting either the bar or via the website,
