Learn More About Northside


Northside Patio In the midst of Valparaiso, Indiana there’s a place called Northside Tap. We’ve been serving hospitality to the residents and visitors of Valparaiso for nearly 150 years. Operating as one of Porter County’s favorite bars, we pride ourselves on serving outstanding food and drinks at reasonable prices, all while providing friendly service and a fun atmosphere.

Built in 1874 and originating as a bar, restaurant, and hotel for the rail workers, our building has been renovated on the outside, remodeled on the inside and seen many new additions. Alongside Casa Del Roma, our full service catering and banquet center, Northside serves as a local favorite when it comes to dining and nightlife.

Come by to watch a game, celebrate a special event, enjoy a night out with your friends, or unwind after work. We may be biased, but we have some of the best food around! Stop in for lunch or dinner and enjoy one of our many made-from-scratch items. We also serve a nice selection of beers and all of your favorite cocktails. Come experience Northside for yourself and make some new friends while creating new memories!
