In 2010, John Charland opened North Bridge Tavern with one goal: Establishing a fun place for locals to grab a cold beer and watch a game after a long day of work. After relocating from up north down to Florida, John missed the camaraderie he found at many of the pubs around New England. He wanted something different from just another tourist trap in Sarasota.

Today, many say they come back to North Bridge because of John’s fun and loving attitude; not just the free games and affordable beers. North Bridge Tavern proudly sponsors charity events and supports local breweries and businesses at every opportunity. Whether it’s the free games, sports, prices, or John himself, don’t hesitate to stop by and say hi!
