Sunriver enjoys the same high-quality craft beer, distilleries, and wine that the Central Oregon region is famous for, meaning that its bars are stocked with only the best of the best. Below, we’ve listed a handful of local bars where you can go to enjoy Sunriver’s greatest drinks and atmospheres. Read on to learn more! Sunriver bars have it all!
Sunriver Brewing Co.
An award-winning brewery located in the Village area, Sunriver Brewing Co. offers an exclusive selection of craft microbrews in a fresh yet homey space. Sunriver Brewing Co.’s standby beers are the trio on which they built their reputation: the Rippin Northwest Ale, the Fuzztail Hefeweizen, and the Vicious Mosquito IPA. Their seasonal and limited release beers, such as Shred Head, S.U.P., D’Bomb, Cocoa Cow, and Grandma’s are also worth trying.
The Wallow Bar & Grill
Known for their lodge-style atmosphere and immense selection of local craft beer on draft, The Wallow Bar & Grill has won over local and visiting patrons alike. Stop by for a brew and maybe sample one of their exotic menu items, such as a bison or elk burger.
The Dogwood Cocktail Cabin
If you’re more into cocktails than craft beer or wine, The Dogwood Cocktail Cabin has you covered. Their extensive and innovative cocktail menu is brimming with cleverly-named creations. Try the Juan Connery, the Beetnik, the Miso Thirsty, the Thai One On, the Sexy Thyme, and more. They do also have a handful of high-quality beers, ciders, and wines, even though cocktails are their main attraction.
Camp Abbott Taphouse
Located next door to Cohen’s Stacked Bistro, Campt Abbott Taphouse (formerly Rat Hole Brewing) is a cozy taphouse that serves some of the region’s best craft beer, detailed in an expansive list. Grab a pint and hit up the billiards table, pinball machine, or arcade games that the bar has to offer. The bar also has a decent selection of wine, cider, and cocktails.
Mountain Jug is a pub that offers up a spectacular selection of local craft beers on tap. They keep their beer lineup fresh by constantly rotating their beer menu. You can order flights, pints, and even growlers to go, filled with beer from 10 Barrel, Deschutes, Boneyard, Cascade Lakes, Bend Brewing, and more. They also play vinyl records in-house and have a number of vintage arcade games.
5 More Sunriver Bars to Try
Haven’t quite found the bar that suits you? No problem, there’s plenty more places to grab a drink—or a few! Check out five more of our picks for the top bars in Sunriver below.
The Village Bar and Grill
Although malls are rapidly becoming obsolete thanks to the internet, the Village at Sunriver remains strong and thriving, in part because they know that people need more than just a place to shop. We want entertainment and recreation, and the Village Bar and Grill is a perfect example of what we need! Become a part of the Sunriver family as you drink, eat, and play electronic keno and lottery games, and for the sports fanatics in your family, rest assured the big game will be playing on the big screens found throughout the bar.
Wickiup Station Sports Pub
The area surrounding Sunriver is not just scenic and breathtaking; sometimes the best bars can be found in the small villages that dot the region! The Wickiup Station Sports Pub offers simple decor, great food, and refreshing beverages as well as friendly service. Located in nearby La Pine, if you’re traveling with children, it’s a great place for lunch, but after 7, only the over 21 crowd is allowed. Which makes it the perfect place to sit back, catch a game, and relax with other likeminded adults!
Sidelines Sports Bar & Grill
Sports bars are what makes the world go ‘round, and in our humble opinion, you can never have too many options! Sidelines Sports Bar & Grill, located in Bend, is everything a sports bar should be, offering almost as many big screened televisions as there are people seated at the bar! The drinks are always cold, the food flavorful and hearty, and the people are always happy and smiling in this, one of our favorite, local Sunriver bars!
Vic’s Bar & Grill
It’s back to La Pine we go for a visit to this rustic and atmospheric bar. Vic’s Bar & Grill is easy to spot with its Old West façade advertising broaster chicken and growler refills! Offering live music on the weekends and thick burgers that take two hands to hold, every beer you drink is destined to go down smoothly and every person you meet might just become your new best friend in this friendly spot!
Twisted River Tavern
As we reach the last of our list of top bars in Sunriver, the Twisted River Tavern is a local favorite that may become your home away from home during your Sunriver journey! Ending where we started, in the best town in Oregon, this Sunriver hotspot is located within the Sunriver Resort and is famed for its creative cocktails as well as the craft beers our region is known for! Great views and a versatile menu add to the ambience and happiness of guests. We just can’t say enough good things about this wonderful place, so be sure and check it out for yourself!
A Vacationer Can Not Live on Bar Nights Alone
The most important part of any night out is having a safe place to land once the last beer has been emptied and the bar tab has been paid. Fortunately, while in Sunriver, yours is one of our charming Sunriver Pines vacation homes away from home! Offering fully equipped kitchens where you can store your growlers in the refrigerator, living areas with comfortable furnishings and fireplaces in many, and back porches for watching the sun set over the hills as you sip at your favorite brew, our homes are designed to pamper and spoil when you come home from our local Sunriver bars!
Choose a property with a hot tub, such as 11 Camas Lane, and spend some time simmering in the hot bubbles under a full moon and a sky filled with the light of a billion stars. Take an unplanned nap on the couch in the middle of the day, sleep late and have breakfast for lunch, or move that overstuffed chair by the window and read in peace and quiet, making your recovery from your night on the town an easy one!
Access to our community pool on a hot summer’s day will make for happy memories, while rainy days won’t be depressing when you spend those hours playing games in game rooms (not all homes offer this amenity, but those that do are definitely worth checking out!) or watching the big game on the flat screen television perched securely over the fireplace. Go old school and play charades in the living room and board games at the dining room table that is large enough for everyone in your group to gather round, or update your favorite social network site with all the pictures of your dream vacation in Sunriver; free Wi-Fi saves the budget and those all important data bytes!
Air conditioning for hot summer days and barbecue grills on the deck for cool evenings anytime are just a sampling of the lengths we will go to ensure your comfort. Our attention to detail has been much appreciated by travelers for as long as we have been in the vacation rental business, and we plan on continuing the tradition for decades to come!
