Where good friends choose to meet

Grab a round, there’s always room for friends at the Elbow Room and Roundhouse. We’ll save you a seat to enjoy our daily drink specials.


Over 60 Years of Beer

The origination of the Elbow Room dates back to the 1960s, making it one of the oldest bars in Bismarck, North Dakota. Located in the heart of downtown Bismarck, Elbow Room is known for cheap drinks, nightly bingo, big screens and is Bismarck’s iconic nightcap meeting place.


In 2019, Roundhouse Gastropub was established on the other side of the Elbow Room. The Roundhouse offers a classy vibe with fun cocktails and more than 15 beers on tap, making it the perfect spot for date night or a night out on the town.
