About Us

A History Worth Repeating

Located in Winnipeg, Manitoba, The Wood Tavern has been the city’s favourite neighbourhood pub since 1937. We’re known for our friendly atmosphere, delicious food, and more famously, our weekends filled with great live music. Over the years we’ve become somewhat of a local institution where friends, families, and a long list of regulars frequent to share memories and create a few new ones too.

Rocking the ‘Peg

We were the first licensed establishment in Winnipeg to offer live entertainment to our patrons. We’ve proudly hosted the likes of K.D. Lang, Burton Cummings, and Ron Paley to name a few. Today, we keep this tradition going strong, booking the most talented and upcoming bands, drawing crowds every Friday and Saturday night.

Family Ties

The Wood Tavern is located in the Norwood Hotel — the oldest family owned and operated hotel in Western Canada. The Sparrow family has always believed in the importance of creating a friendly meeting place for Winnipeggers to enjoy for generations to come. Our patrons come from almost all corners of the world, but no matter where they end up they’ll always have a special place in our city, and a familiar pub to relax at — The Wood Tavern.
