Marketplace Tavern in the Old Litchfield Jail

7 North St. | 860-361-9930

Marketplace may have the coolest location in Litchfield, making its home in the renovated former jail built to house prisoners in the War of 1812. In warm weather, guests favor the outdoor patio overlooking the Green, but the interior beckons, too, with its “clink chic.”  There’s a small but good craft beer menu to accompany the burgers and other classic tavern fare (fried calamari, nachos, onion soup, fish-and-chips, etc.), and specials kick it up a notch with dishes like spicy spaghetti with shrimp. *Outdoor dining.
