Always wanted to own a bar? Check out this recently updated 86-year-old tavern just a couple miles from Lake Michigan for sale Up North!

The Mayfair Tavern in Elberta first opened in 1933 as a watering hole for railroad and car ferry workers. It's since become known as a community gathering place to enjoy good food and drinks. In addition to being located off of M-22, which often praised as one of Michigan's (and America's) most scenic drives, it's just a few miles from Lake Michigan and across the street from Bestie Bay.

I'm a sucker for a nautical theme, so I'm OBSESSED with Mayfair's interior. It's also got an awesome outdoor bar and patio area!

According to the listing, the outdoor area, which seats 50, was a recent addition. The Mayfair was also recently updated with a new roof, remodeled kitchen with new stove, new handicap accessible bathrooms, new HVAC system, and a private office with video surveillance. So it's got that historic charm, but with modern upgrades to make it successful in this day and age.

Inside Mayfair Tavern you'll find room for 85 with table seating, cozy booths, high-top seating at the bar, and a pool table.
