The Old Tavern building, located at 2801 Capitol Avenue, is a historic building listed on the National Register of Historic Places located in Midtown Sacramento.

One of the last vestiges of Sacramento’s Wild West history is the Old Tavern, which has operated in Downtown Sacramento since 1849 or 1850. The first structure on the site of the Old Tavern, likely used for storage, was built by John Sutter after he constructed Sutter’s Fort across the street. This edifice was expanded in the early 1850s when Philip Scheld turned it into a two-story building and founded Scheld’s Sacramento Brewery. Additional floors and buildings were added to the estate over the years as it was used for various business including a speakeasy, apartments, and a data-processing center.

During its time as a tavern, the site was a widely known landmark and a frequent stopping spot for stagecoaches on their way to downtown Sacramento.
The building was renovated in the mid to late 1980s to allow for the iconic and famous Biba restaurant to occupy the original tavern section and medical offices for other parts of the building. 2801 Capitol Avenue will be undergoing a complete renovation, inside and out, in the very near future. The available spaces, ranging from 2,427 – 16,934 square feet offer existing restaurant infrastructure, along with large patios on the exterior. The options lend themselves perfectly to many restaurant, market or retail uses to serve the highly trafficked and populated midtown and Alhambra medical corridors.

Take advantage of this once in a century opportunity to lease one of the most historical and iconic retail spaces in the entire Sacramento region.
