Welcome to The Parlor, one of the most distinguished bars in downtown Traverse City. We are an old-fashioned craft cocktail bar that offers a prohibition era experience that is vastly different from other establishments. Beyond our intriguing environment, we specialize in fresh, classic and unique handcrafted cocktails and gastro-pub style food – all backed by exceptional service. Behind the scenes, The Parlor also has an event venue space, the Northern Express Room, that is available for private parties, corporate events, wedding receptions, and other group gatherings.
Based in a historic train weigh station that was once occupied by a cherry warehouse in the 1800’s, The Parlor offers our patrons an unparalleled sense of historic warmth and vintage vibes with downtown Traverse City’s only free parking. Our rustic setting is inspired by original exposed wood beams and century-old architecture, all set in a vibrant, candlelit atmosphere. Whether you are attending a party or looking for a unique experience on the town, see what makes The Parlor one of the best cocktail lounges and event venues in northern Michigan.
