Bars & Cafes
Since 1976, The Black Oak Tavern has served the Oneonta locals as a perennial neighborhood hangout that just doesn't seem to die down. If you are expecting a fancy setup with brightly-lit interiors and elegant decor, then you can definitely bid adieu to this tavern. Instead, it attracts the crowd with its selection of more than 10 local brews and several imported ones as well as happening live music events held throughout the week. Various local and touring bands play out rock, funk, jazz, metal and other varied music, much to the delight of the music lovers. And if you want the crowd to cheer to your voice, then head on to the stage with your band on Monday for the Open mic nights and strut what you got, in style. Call ahead or visit their website to know more.

Located on 136 acres (55.03 hectares) of what was once a hop farm, Brewery Ommegang opened its doors in 1997.

They boast of six award-winning and all-time favorite brews: Belgian Pale Ale, Three Philosphers, Hennepin, Witte, Rare Vos and Abbey Ale. Following a tour around the brewery, visitors can drop in at the cafe to enjoy delectable Belgian fares that will wonderfully complement the beers produced here. Brewery Ommegang regularly plays host to beer festivals and concerts; the annual event, 'Belgium Comes to Cooperstown', is a must-visit for every Belgian food and drink lover.
