The Bell Tree in downtown Southern Pines draws its inspiration from the taverns of yesteryear. From the street, a black awning hangs over a heavy wooden door punctuated by a cast-iron door knob. Inside, polished hardwood floors, an exposed brick wall, a high-top dark wooden bar and ornamental chestnut-colored ceilings add to the old-school ambience. Huge storefront windows overlook the tree-lined Broad Street. Wooden tables and chairs and cast-iron-and-smokey-glass wall sconces pull the old-world look together. But its timeless style doesn't stop with the just the tangible. The tavern's name carries historical significance, too. As the story goes, thirsty travelers in search of a libation would ring a bell inside a hollowed tree to signal that they wanted a swig of moonshine. Moonshiners used this method as a way of avoiding capture. Visit The Bell Tree and you're likely to hear the story behind its name.
