Marfield’s Pub

(Leavenworth, KS)

Scooter’s 543rd bar, first visited in 2009.

Marfield's Pub, Leavenworth

As we pulled up we saw the “Esplanade Tavern” signs and the Mexican style architecture and decided this would be where we’d have lunch. “Mexican sounds great right about now!” said B as we got out of the car.

Then we rounded the car and saw the “Marfield’s Pub” sign in the front. Huh?

Once seating inside we asked the bartender about the confusion.

“Oh, this is Marfield’s, an Irish pub,” she said as she handed us menus that contained food neither of us were in the mood for, as we were expecting Mexican. “A few years ago we were sandblasting the building to repaint it and that old sign appeared under all the layers of paint, we decided to keep it, something historic.”

I was happy to at least be able to get a Guinness, but the taps were down (temporarily) so I had to settle for a bottle of Coors Light.
