Bardens Bar (since 1937) is conveniently located on State Street in Waseca. It presides in the former Security State Bank building and has preserved much of its historical charm with it's 18 foot high ceiling, 12 x 20 foot stain glass skylight and 7 matching front facing windows. The (art deco period) Brunswick front and back bar with matching booth set adds to its appeal. The Bardens opened and ran this business until 1965 when Dick Wendland and Dick Hayes partnered up and purchased this landmark. Richard (Ivory Dick) bought it outright and the bar remains in the Wendland family to date. One can stop in for a cold beer, cocktail, and/or a pizza and be a part of it's history. Play a game of pool or darts. If gambling is what is on your mind Bardens has 7 pull tab boxes and electronic pulltab machines as well. One can park out front or enjoy the off street parking behind the building and its rear entrance. If enjoying the outdoors is what you like there is a nice patio in the back that is appreciated by many throughout the warmer months. So stop in to relax and take your mind off of todays worries. Off sale is also available.
