Here are a few things you can always expect at Tavern On Broad: very recent postgrads, the song “Livin’ On A Prayer” to play at least twice a night, and the entire bar to act like they haven’t heard “Livin’ On A Prayer” in years every single time it comes on. If this sounds familiar to you, that’s because it’s basically built for people who wish they never graduated. And while that may not be you on a day when you’re sober and thinking clearly, the nostalgia will probably sneak up on you after a few beers and a spontaneous Facetime from your freshman-year roommate.
