Farragut Tavern

(Downtown, Farragut, IA)

Scooter’s 989th bar, first visited in 2013.

Our third stop on my brother’s birthday pub crawl.

Most online maps get the location of this bar wrong. It’s actually south of the grain elevators and railroad tracks, across the street from the post office.

There’s no cellphone service in town, at least not on AT&T or T-Mobile. Luckily the bar has free wifi.

There’s also a pool table darts, a Bags video game, and video slots.

While we didn’t see any obvious food, there’s a refrigerator, microwave, and a small pizza oven implying a limited selection of eats.

After we left Farragut we continued down the back roads to the town of Riverton. I did not have a drink at our next stop so I cannot officially add it to my list, but I’d like to add it here as a footnote…

We arrived here in the midst of a poker run, so the place was teeming with bikers — some of whom we’d end up meeting again throughout the day.

On the inside is a horseshoe shaped bar, two pool tables, video slots, arcade games, and lots of photos. Outside is a covered patio and a sand volleyball court.
