This iconic historic Spooner bar is the oldest bar in Spooner and has been in contionuous operation as the Buckhorn thru 4 different owners since the end of prohibition (and maybe during prohibition when it was a “card room”!). We are known far and wide as the “bar where John F Kennedy stopped for a speech a beer and a visit to the rest room in 1960″. We are renowned for our classic Northwoods look with over 100 fish and game mounts including the famous two headed calf. We are also known for having the coldest beer in town, our many Big Dick’s novelty items (shirts, hats, panties, shot glasses etc) and our unique Big Dickski Shot Board. We have 3 pool tables and a large game/party room which is open to the public and reservable for special events. Pizzas, chips, snacks, White Castles and other prepackaged food items are available daily. Open 11am to 2am M-Th, 11am to 2:30am F-Sat and 11am to 6pm Sun.
