Named after the year the hotel was founded, 1913 offers a unique localy and regionally sourced menu - prepared from archived recipes that were popular in the Midwest in the early 1900's but with a modern twist.

“Nice place for a drink”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed July 22, 2014

Four of us met here to make plans for dinner. Very friendly and helpful bartender. Two of us disliked our beer, thought it was bad, actually, but he cheerfully took the glasses away and suggested another choice. Apologized and made no fuss, no bother. I like that.

“Awesome bartender - good drinks”

Great personable bartender and wide drink selection. A bit pricey but expected for a bar in the Omni.

“Better Than Average Bar Food”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed May 19, 2014

We stayed at the Omni Severin Hotel, and since it was raining, we decided to grab supper at The Severin Bar. The specials were $2 sliders or mini hot dogs. It was a Tuesday night and we wanted to try the signature popcorn, but the waitress said they were already out of popcorn due to all of the conventions. We ordered a few of the specials and some Sticks of Bacon, as well as the Chicken and Funnel Fries (funnel cake batter cooked like fries). Service was a bit slow; it seemed that the food was actually cooked at the restaurant on the other side of the lobby and then brought to the bar. We got part of our meal, but were told the cook had missed our other order, and it came later. Above average food, nice atmosphere with lots of TVs, and a good way to spend a rainy evening.

“Great little bar in downtown”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed May 10, 2014 via mobile

Then staff at this bar perfectly know what they are doing. Perfect drinks, great selection of local microbrews and service second to none. Did not try the food here, it is brought in from the hotel and never had a bad meal there.

We did try the mojitos they make here and everyone who tried them said it was the best they ever had. They do take a little time to make but well worth it.
