It all started in 1969, when an old building in the small town of Stowe, Vermont was transformed into a saloon. A few years later, it became a tavern, and in the eighties, it was turned into a disco.
In 1986, a new owner took over and changed the name of the establishment to “The Rusty Nail,” and in 1991, it was moved to its present location. In 1994, the building was destroyed by an electrical fire but rebuilt to be bigger and better.
It reopened in 1996 and was purchased by new owners in 2004. Today, The Rusty Nail is one of the most popular night spots in the area, with locals and tourists alike.
The Rusty Nail entertains patrons with great live performances, from local artists and from nationally-known acts. The large dance floor invites patrons to move to the sounds of jazz, blues, and rock. There’s also a game room with foosball, air hockey, pool tables, and video games. And if you want to watch the big game on TV, you can check it out on the 20-foot screen in the sports bar.
The Rusty Nail isn’t just a night club – it’s also a great restaurant. Open seven days a week for lunch and dinner, the grille serves unique appetizers like fried pickles, Scotch eggs, pizza bites, and deep fried ravioli, along with more traditional starters.
Entrée include comfort foods like burgers, ribs, homemade macaroni and cheese, biscuits and gravy, and fried chicken. If you indulge in one of the rib-sticking dishes, be sure to save room for dessert: fried cheesecake with blueberry sauce or a brownie sundae.
When you’re ready for some libations, The Rusty Nail won’t disappoint. Their experienced staff members create magic with drinks. Try one of their specialty martinis!
If you’re in Stowe, stop by The Rusty Nail and stay a while. You’ll love the fun, friendly atmosphere!
