Linger Longer Tavern

Linger Longer Tavern


We're here and We Love you! How can we help come back?
Hi. I visited the Linger Longer for the first time on Sunday night and the bartender was kind enough to give me a sheet on the history of the bar. My hobby is visiting and collecting historical information on bars in Washington state and across the west, including trying to collect locations of great antique back bars. The bar in the Linger Longer is a "Mont Oro" model manufactured by the Brunswick-Balke-Collender company, probably in their Dubuque, Iowa plant. The bar history sheet mentions stories of it coming to Oregon on a ship around Cape Horn, on a train, etc., and perhaps was stored in a barn for many years -- any of which could well be true as these bars were constructed between the 1880s and prohibition. The sheet also mentions stories of the bar being part of a 3-part set with the other parts now in "(insert name of city here, there have been dozens)." For some reason these stories are common around these bars -- sometimes with anecdotes about how once larger bars were sawed in half -- but I haven't found any reason to believe any of these are accurate (and with my collected photos and I can often show that the purported shared locations actually have different styles of bars). I enjoyed my visit to the Linger Longer and love the fact that this old place is being kept alive and its beautiful back bar still in use by a working bar. If anybody has any further information on the bar, back bar, or any other antique back bars, I'd love to hear from you. I am mapping the ones that I find in the northwest here: Cheers, Pete
