City Tavern is in The Dean Building, which has roots dated back to 1914 when John Morgan Dean built the structure around two existing 19th-century homes. The original hotel that Dean built was called The Morgan Hotel.

    City Tavern has been in business since 1998 and has been under the same local ownership since 2008. While working closely with the River District Alliance, neighboring businesses, and the City of Ft. Myers, City Tavern is one of many downtown destination spots in the Fort Myers River District.

The Dean Building’s roots go back to 1914 when John Morgan Dean built the structure around two existing homes built in the 1800’s.

    Downtown Ft. Myers has seen many changes over the years, to say the least. Downtown underwent extreme changes including a totally new streetscape, which was completed in 2009. The latest River District changes include a brand new riverfront basin located directly in front of City Tavern, which was completed in late 2012. The construction of The Luminary Hotel began in 2018 and is scheduled to be completed in the Fall of 2020

    City Tavern has been under the same local ownership since August, 2008. While working closely with the River District Alliance, neighboring businesses, and City of Ft. Myers officials, City Tavern is one of many Downtown destination spots in the Fort Myers River District. We welcome everyone to come enjoy a little piece of Lee County history that is, Downtown Ft.
