Situated in a beautiful 1931 red brick building, Rare Bird’s mission is to provide an unsurpassed dining and drinking experience in Traverse City. From our intimate reclaimed wood booths to the cozy and cool feel of the tables made from massive wood slabs that owners, Nate and Tina, sustainably harvested, we have a space for everyone to feel comfortable.
Our own beers and many more flow from the taps along with a selection of wines, ciders and spirits. Our menu features simple, familiar items served with a unique and exciting flair. Our ingredients are sourced locally when possible. Keeping with the local theme, our beer ingredients includes malt and hops grown in Michigan whenever possible. All of these qualities together make Rare Bird stand out in the crowd.
