Ox Lake Tavern to become the Bourbon Room


The Ox Lake Tavern in Crosslake has closed and will reopen under new ownership as The Bourbon Room sometime before Memorial Day.

The building is undergoing a complete interior and exterior remodel and will have an old rustic saloon feel.

When it opens, The Bourbon Room will carry a full liquor license, while it previously had beer, wine and set-ups.

The menu will also be changed, and will feature what the owners called “Mom’s old-style cooking.”
