Carlisle Barracks Welcomes “Black Jack” Themed Pub and Eatery

On February 10, 2016 Carlisle Barracks MWR opened a highly anticipated addition to The Letort View Community Center (LVCC)! The Pershing Tavern is a neighborhood style alehouse and eatery that was named for John Joseph “Black Jack” Pershing, the general who led American Expeditionary Forces to victory in World War I over Germany. It offers an old world setting with traditional tavern style food and drinks. Whether you are out for a pint with friends, hosting an event or large gathering the experienced staff at The Pershing Tavern will be there to provide world class customer service.

LVCC manager Scot Richardson stated, “My vision for the Pershing is to create a venue that can be used for any event including Change of Commands, wine tastings, seminar meetings, spouse’s club outings, as well as rehearsal dinners and private parties”. The Tavern is the result in large part to Scot’s hard work and dedication. His attention to detail, and perhaps actual blood, sweat and tears are evident throughout the entire room with its handmade bar and custom molding to its expansive cabinetry.

Whether you are a legitimate “Stammtisch” (ask someone who was stationed in Germany) or a first time guest, the Pershing Tavern’s casual elegance and traditional ambience has something for everyone. Multiple flat screen televisions that can easily be seen from any vantage point and WIFI make it the perfect spot for you to enjoy any sporting event or party. Adjacent to the addition is the Vandenberg room where you will find ample room for the entire family to sit down and enjoy dinner. You can also enjoy entertainment provided by one of the fantastic local musical acts that play every Thursday at no cost!

The Community Center has a Mug Club that will allow anyone to partake in a piece of the Army War College and Carlisle Barracks’ rich history and tradition. The tavern’s normal operating hours are Wednesday and Thursday from 4 to 10 pm. The facility is also available for rent to host your upcoming event. Contact the LVCC at (717)245-4329 for availability and rates.
