Sleder’s Family Tavern
Traverse City, MI (Est. 1882)
Oh poor White Horse, that two-year hiatus you took from 2012 until January 2014 had you just missing your claim to the throne. But since White Horse closed, the mantle has been taken by Sleder’s, a Traverse City tavern built over three years in the 1880s by locals on their day off from wood planks from nearby pulp mills. They stayed open during prohibition by serving bourbon and rye in teacups at no charge, and have a moose head on the wall that patrons are known to kiss for luck.
