After working in the state of California, the owners of 1905 Tavern hope the new restaurant will provide a unique dining experience in Freeburg.

1905 Tavern is set to open in mid-December at 101 S. U.S. 63 in Freeburg.

Housed in a building constructed in 1905, the business will serve items like burgers and wings, as well as "fresh drink ideas that aren't Budweiser and Busch," said Anthony Rudkin, who owns 1905 Tavern and 1905 Bistro, coming soon to the Missouri State Capitol in Jefferson City.

Rudkin is currently working with local distilleries and breweries to provide more drink options.

Like 1905 Bistro, 1905 Tavern will also use several locally-sourced products like meats and breads, Rudkin said.

1905 Tavern will be open Wednesday through Monday, but hours of operation have not been finalized.

Rudkin and business partner Will Johns ran restaurants in the San Francisco area for 10 years.

"We went out there to get a little bit different food training that you couldn't get around here so we're going to try and bring that to the area," Rudkin said. "It's going to take a little bit of time but I think the community, especially the younger generation, is just ready for something different."

Rudkin said he is excited to offer a new experience in Freeburg and get to know the community.

"I love Freeburg already, and we have people stopping by, honking as they drive by," he said. "I think they're ready for it. I think they're ready for something a little bit different."
