Welcome to The Thirsty Lion
Founded back in 2007 the one and only Thirsty Lion Tavern has been proudly serving
the Charleswood community for over 10 years! We owe the enormous success we have
had so far, to our unique atmosphere, amazing community, and our outstanding team.
We offer an extensive selection of beers on tap, from dark rich stouts, pale ales, and frothy lagers, as well as a huge selection of premium spirits and liqueurs to choose from. Whether you’re wanting to cool down in the summer with a frozen peach Bellini or warm up in the winter with an Irish coffee, we have something for everyone! It’s all served up in our friendly Pub atmosphere where you can enjoy a cocktail on the patio, grab a pint and play a game of pool at one of our tables or relax and catch up with friends. There are always sports on all of our many HD flat screen TV’s, whether its hockey, football, soccer, NBA, baseball or any other event we will be showing it!
