"The world's longest permanent bar is the 405-ft-10-in-long
counter in the "Beer Barrel Saloon" at Put-in-Bay,
South Bass Island, OH, opened in 1989.
(Excerpt from the 1994 Edition of the Guiness World Book of Records)

History & Facts

On Memorial weekend 1988, one of Put-in-Bay's most treasured and well-known historic building, the Colonial, was engulfed in flames and perished in less than an hour. Today, upon its ashes, the spirit of the old Colonial and the merrymakers who worked, danced, and drank within it lives on in what has become home to the World's Longest Bar, the Beer Barrel Saloon. Located in downtown Put-in-Bay, on South Bass Island and affectionately called "The Barrel" by many islanders, the Beer Barrel boasts a 405 foot, 10 inch long bar, 160 bar stools, 56 beer taps and a seating capacity of 1,200. On a busy night the bar employs over 20 bartenders and opens two extra bars in the back and side of the building.


If you stood the Beer Barrel Saloon's
405 foot, 10 inch long bar on end, 
it would be taller than Perry's Monument!

Fun & Sun

On a fine day customers can choose between relaxing in air-conditioned comfort while enjoying some of the island's favorite entertainment, or taking in the beautiful lake view from the breezy and sunny outside patio and bar.
