In the fall of 2002, doors opened bringing together history on this downtown corner of Asylum/Trumbull Streets in Hartford CT. The brownstone building, constructed in 1861 to house the charter Oak Bank, became home to McKinnon’s. The original bank vault, complete with two multiple ton doors and incased with 18 inches of concrete and rebar, makes home to our kitchen. History behind the solid 24-foot hardwood bar and back piece is a bit more involved. Built by the amalgamated woodworkers union and shipped by sea from up state NY, to Port Townsend Seattle, Washington in the late 19th century, the bar became a fixture at the Olde Town Tavern, which was featured in the movie "Officer & A Gentleman". A framed photo from 1928, as one walks through our front entrance, shows some regulars at the club.
