Bernie’s Bagels & Distillery: A History Lesson
From The Lantern:
Bernie’s showcases underground bands, deep-rooted history
It may not be called Cheers, but at 16th and High, there’s a place where everybody knows your name. Bernie’s Bagels and Distillery is a hidden gem of campus history where friends become family and the bartenders always provide a story and a cold beer.
Few things have changed since Bernie Kaplin and Art Shack opened Bernie’s in 1975. Much of the same menu is still available, including soups, sandwiches and their famous bagels. Aside from a few price changes and some rearranging, the spirit of Bernie’s has remained the same.
