Welcome to the Players Retreat
On February 27, 1951, Bernie and Mickey Hanula founded the institution known as the Players Retreat. Less of a bar and restaurant, and more of a family, the PR remains  a popular respite for the young and the old, the rich and the poor. It is a place where people from all walks of life rub elbows, share toasts, good times, and laughs. At 64 years old, very little has changed since its humble beginnings. In 1994 Pete Jarrell took over the PR and continued the tradition.  Our friends Bernie and Mickey passed away several years ago.  In their honor, our staff and our patrons strive to keep the PR the way that it has always been and as it should always be. Thank you for your patronage and support over the years, and may the PR continue for another 64 years.

                                   Thank You,
Gus Gusler, Proprietor
