The Two Point Inn AKA The Two Point Inn Tavern
We were headed to the Twilight Room and couldn’t resist ducking into this cute lil’ dive bar! Two Point Inn (AKA The Two Point Inn Tavern) is tiny with just one long line of 10-12 barstools, but they still managed to make room for video poker (of course) and a karaoke machine.
Clean, but kind of smells like cigarette smoke from the smoking platform out back.
Friendly bartender, just 4 taps and none of them very interesting. We have it on good authority that the custom branded “2 Point” tap is really just Olympia. No kitchen or much food to speak of, but there are packaged snacks and an offer of 10 mini corndogs for $4. Que value!
If you need a quick stop in the neighborhood and you’re not a beer snob, Two Point Inn may be your place.

Co-Conspirator’s Note (Arthur): YES, as of July 2023, Two Point Inn is open, though you might not know it from their one “website” link when you search for them — their Facebook page. Its last entry is from 2021, and on it they still have a Groupon link, even though there is currently no active Groupon activity for the location. But hey — dive bars are NOT known for their online presence, but for their live ambiance, and this little place is cozy and friendly!
