Chelsea Tavern

Chelsea Tavern is a popular local gastropub located in downtown Wilmington directly across from the Grand Opera House.  The kitchen prepares made-from-scratch comfort food with local ingredients, complemented by an ever-changing craft beer selection. Chelsea’s ever changing 33 taps, large format bottles, cans and single serving bottles spotlight seasonal and local brews, in addition to wine and cocktails. Open daily till 1 AM, Chelsea is a neighborhood favorite for a quick lunch, weekend brunch with friends, pre-show dinner, group outing and vibrant outdoor patio dining. The energetic bar scene is a gathering place always playing the game of the week on its large TVs. Cheers!
