Darkhorse To Close After More Than 20 Years In Business
The Darkhorse Tavern will close this summer after more than two decades in business, the downtown bar announced today. The last day of operation will be July 15, 2018.
“Thank you for choosing us as a place to come have a pint, a laugh, or a plate of wings,” Darkhorse said in a statement. “A place to watch the game or listen to music. Without your support, we would not have these wonderful memories spanning the past two decades.”
The announcement says the previous owner of Darkhorse has decided to retire.
Darkhorse joins a long list of beloved State College businesses closing this year, including most recently The All-American Rathskeller, The Fraser Street Deli, Ye Olde College Diner, Herwig’s Austrian Bistro. No announcement has been made as to what may replace the bar.

Blazer testified that he was contacted by a Penn State assistant in 2009 who was the father of one of Blazer’s NFL clients. The assistant asked Blazer to pay a player $10,000 so that he would not enter the NFL Draft. Blazer complied, handing a $10,000 check to the father of that player, but the player ended up in the 2009 NFL Draft and was selected No. 11 overall.
