The Location

The Green Dragon Tavern & Museum is a community centric restaurant, hospitality venue, and a must-visit destination located in Carlsbad, CA. Inspired by 18th century taverns, it is an enhanced replica of the original Green Dragon Tavern, which was once located on Union Street in Boston’s North End. This is where over two centuries ago, Samuel Adams, Dr. Joseph Warren, Paul Revere, and other notable Founding Fathers met in secret at Green Dragon Tavern to discuss the events of their day and organize calls to action. Carlsbad is a wonderful place to visit and The Green Dragon is only 5 minutes from the Pacific Beach, Legoland, the San Diego Zoo, and many other wonderful attractions.
