Room 94 provides a new taproom experience for the patrons of Odawa Petoskey.

Room 94 provides a crafted selection of beer, bourbon and delectable bites. Along with the selected beers and bourbons, the menu promises classic comfort food and adventurous culinary creations.

Inside Room 94 you can find a wide lineup of bar games for those looking to liven up their dining experience with friends. Included is pool, darts and arcade games.

The name Room 94 stems from the history of the Little Traverse Bay Bands of Odawa Indians. The number 94 represents when the tribe was signed into reaffirmation as a federally recognized sovereign nation in September 1994.

Room 94 will be open every day at Odawa Petoskey starting at 4 p.m. It will close at midnight on Sunday-Thursday and 1 a.m. on Fridays and Saturdays.
