What would you say to a sumptuous dinner in a historic mansion, dining in a room where presidents once were entertained? A meal at Encore in Jim Thorpe, PA is so much more than just a meal: it’s a step back in time. Experience the grandeur of this luxurious home in downtown Jim Thorpe and feel immersed in history!
Be Entertained in Style
The mansion that is now home to Encore was built by General Charles Albright and finished in 1860. These rooms played host to Presidents Grant and Cleveland, as well as many other luminaries over the years. And now you can enjoy their welcome! Imagine sipping a fine cocktail as you listen to the beautiful music of Encore’s resident entertainer and appreciating delicious cuisine with your loved one in the intimacy of Encore’s cozy dining room. You just may feel like a personal guest of the General himself!
Speakeasy and Absinthe Bar
Say what? See, it’s like going back in time! Yes, Encore is proud to host what they claim is the “oldest absinthe bar outside of New Orleans.” Come taste the famous green spirit in a variety of carefully crafted cocktails that the Absinthe Bar has to offer. Or head upstairs to the Speakeasy and enjoy Prohibition-era beverages in an intimate and secretive setting. You must ask to gain access!
And Then There’s the Food!
Yes, for all its fun historical accouterments, Encore is still a restaurant, and serves delicious meals for lunch and dinner. Try some of their fabulous appetizers, like Warm Mozzarella Burrata, or Angus Filet Tartare. Move on from there to a soup or salad, like the Roasted Beet & Goat Cheese Salad. But after that, you’ll really have to choose: will it be steak, pasta, pan-seared duck breast, lobster tails? Only you can decide. Even the Accomplimente (side dishes) are a challenge to decide from, because it will not be easy to choose between Parmesan Truffle Potato Wedges and Bacon Shrimp Mac n’ Cheese!
While the historical home in which Encore is set may be of great interest, sometimes you’d like to still get the same great meal in a more relaxed setting. That’s why Encore also offers an outdoor dining area, where guests can relax on days with nice weather. Best of all, it’s pet-friendly, so go ahead and bring furry friends along with you to dine! You can even order food for them. It’s not every day that dogs can get such great meal service!
