the story of anchor bar

As far as running a bar goes, our original owner Leo Derderian really said it best:

“You put yourself in the other guys shoes. See how you would feel with his complaint. Maybe I learned that from being on the barstool side for so long…you’ve got to try and understand the customer. If he says the drink is weak, give him a bottle. Make him happy.”

Leo’s philosophy has carried through to present-day, where the Anchor bar is still the same ole’ dive with a fresh take on stiff drinks and good eats. We like to think that when you step through the doors to the Anchor Bar, you’ll feel the memories and rousing energy that Leo and his friends filled the bar with all those years ago.

Anchor Bar is in partnership with The Iconic Collection
