Our Story

Located within Northampton's historic Union Station, The Tunnel Bar is a nationally acclaimed cocktail lounge known for its unique environment and renown selection of award-winning martinis and libations.

Designed by architect H.H. Richardson with revolutionary Richardsonian Romanesque architecture, Union Station facilitated thousands of train passengers travelling across America during the turn of the century.

Visitors of Union Station include Calvin Coolidge, Herbert Hoover, William McKinley, and Theodore Roosevelt.

Today, The Tunnel Bar is a beacon for purveyors of fine beverages and unique atmosphere, and all original stone and brickwork circa 1897, remains.

Our mixologists are pleased to bring any drink creation to life utilizing our full bar, however we recommend our award winning martinis.

We think you'll agree, there's nothing quite like The Tunnel Bar.
The Tunnel Bar has been named number one of "Top 19 Bars in America to drink at before you die" by Buzzfeed, among many other national and regional accolades.

We invite you to sit back, relax, and drink in a little history.
