Duluth, MN – The Pickwick

A favorite of locals and travelers alike, the Pickwick is now being operated by the 4th generation of the Wisocki family, continuous operators since 1914.  The bar actually opened earlier, within the plant of the Fitger’s Brewing Complex, but relocated next door and took the new name in 1914.   With  white oak  wood interiors,  beautiful wall paintings, and commanding views of Lake Superior, the “Wick” as it is known locally, is known for its preparartions of local fish, prime USDA beef, and hand-crafted cocktails.  Be sure to start with a basket of onion rings! (Can you spot my grandfather, father and uncle in the Prohibition photo?)
