The Knickerbocker Saloon is a famous landmark in Lafayette as it is Indiana's oldest bar.  It was established in 1835 as the “Cherry Wood Bar” of the Lahr Luxury Hotel, and issued Indiana’s first liquor license.  The “Cherry Wood Bar” was later renamed the Knickerbocker Saloon in 1874 when the areas first player piano was introduced. (Music has been a very important player in creating the bar into what it is today!) The Knickerbocker boasts a guest list including; President Grant, Mark Twain, Al Capone, and even Neil Armstrong!
