As of Monday, 3.16.2020, Taps at The Guardhouse is closed until further notice.
We are taking this action in response to Governor Jay Inslee’s state-wide emergency proclamation ordering the temporary shutdown of restaurants, bars, and entertainment and recreation facilities.
We will adjust as these orders evolve and are defined and will keep you posted.
In the interim, thank you for your support of Fort Worden.
Built in 1904, the Guardhouse provided “transient” accommodations for soldiers who breached military discipline, usually as a result of unauthorized activities in the rough and tumble taverns on Port Townsend’s notorious Water Street.
Today, the Guardhouse is a place to “shed your shackles” and enjoy a pub atmosphere featuring artisanal small plates and regional craft brews, ciders, wines and spirits. Stop in and enjoy local art exhibits, live music, and a great atmosphere!
