Natchez, Mississippi

King's Tavern, circa 1789, is one of the oldest buildings in the Natchez area. In 2013, The Charboneau family bought the building and created a hand-crafted, wood fire oven restaurant that serves small batch liquors, unique cocktails, and tavern-made flatbreads.

The restaurant serves dinner on Thursday and Friday and lunch and dinner on Saturday and Sunday. Mixology classes are offered (by reservation) on weekends upstairs at the Tavern.

In 1789, Richard King opened a tavern in the building. Located near the beginning of the old Natchez Trace the tavern was a sanctuary to many a weary traveler. The building is also thought to be haunted by the ghost of Mr. King's mistress, Madeline. Her remains were found in the brick fireplace with a Spanish dagger in her chest.
