About Us

Corners Tavern opened in the heart of downtown Walnut Creek's Broadway Plaza in the spring of 2012. A former blacksmith warehouse and longtime home to Bing Crosby's restaurant, Corners Tavern pays homage to its heritage and retains its old school charm, while having enough style and class for a client lunch.

Our burger is one of the best in the Bay, our small plates and snacks are worthy of another drink, and all of our breads are handmade in house. With a unique collection of craft beers, artisan cocktails & distinctive wines, Corners Tavern is open for lunch, dinner, weekday happy hour and weekend brunch.

Our space is cozy and unpretentious, featuring whimsical design details like pennies for floor tiles, snake cage dioramas in the lounge and our stunning maple-top bar that greets you upon entering. Our patio is always dog friendly and we love to throw open our garage doors on the patio when the weather is nice, bringing the outside into our dining room.

Check us out. We guarantee we'll become your go-to for happy hour, a quick lunch, a night out on the town, or a well-deserved break from a shopping spree.

This unique restaurant was designed by Doug Washington, who spent over a year custom designing all of the lighting and finding unique objects and furnishings for the space.

Eclectic pieces can be seen throughout the restaurant: antique, illuminated wooden snake cages filled with dioramas, most of which were created by set decorator Danielle Quilici and costumer Grace Lee. Additional design elements include barn wood sourced from an old defunct dairy farm in Oregon, a blend of old Canadian and American pennies used as floor tiles around the column bases, two massive garage doors that open up the entire front of the building onto an outdoor patio, embossed wallpaper and old Egyptian crystal sconces.

Perhaps the most defining element in the entire space is the two grand murals in the main dining room - each measuring 35 feet long by 8 feet high. They were painted by artist Freya Prowe and are titled 'Wurtzelkinder' (The Roots Children) and 'Maerchen.' They were created using Sumi ink and tea-stain on paper.
