If You've Got The Time...

We've Got The Beer!


An Old Fashioned Neighborhood Pub • Open Daily in Downtown Sioux Falls

• A unique, vintage, nostalgic atmosphere
• Tasteful finishes hand selected to feel quaint
• Relics of yesteryear: jukebox, retro beer signs, matchbooks, etc.
• A focus on local taps and traditions (make it a martini for 50 cents)

• Retro beers on tap like Grain Belt, PBR and Coors Banquet Beer
• A staple for watching sporting events or playing cards with friends
• Neighborly service and unassuming staff
• An old-fashioned pub amongst the upscale downtown spots



Monday, July 22nd • Doors at 6:30PM • Show at 7:30 PM


Minneapolis-based country-folk band Goatroper is coming to play at the pub on Monday, July 22nd at 7:30pm! Seating is limited so tickets will be available via pre-sale for $15 apiece until they sell out. Tickets can be purchased online or at the pub and those who purchase tickets will have their name listed at Will Call and will receive a wristband the night of the event.

Goatroper appeared on the scene in the Twin Cities in 2021 and quickly became fixtures on the local circuit. Bandleaders Abbey Janii and Mike Lee trade vocals and bring wide-ranging musical experience to Goatroper, resulting in a mix of folk, country, old-time, and maybe even some ragtime. They debuted their self-titled album this past November and return to play in their hometown of Sioux Falls at The Orion Pub!

This show is 21+ only - no minors!

Our Founders Club

Over Two Dozen Founding Members Can't Be Wrong! We Salute Those That Are Helping Us Make The Orion Pub A Reality!

As downtown Sioux Falls continues its rapid growth, it seems as though there’s a new swanky cocktail bar or fancy dining establishment opening every month. As trends often do, the upscale drinking and dining segment has exploded in downtown Sioux Falls, but as the masses zig, many of us are tempted to zag and find a relaxed, unassuming atmosphere where we can sit down over beers with a friend and be ourselves. A neighborhood bar that makes us feel like we’re stepping back to simpler times as we belly up to the bar and enjoy a nostalgic pint of something classic. THIS is what downtown Sioux Falls is missing... a vintage brew pub with a neighborly feel that’s been purpose-built for friends and neighbors, men and women, all are welcome at The Orion.


We're not rich men, we're average folks just like you, which is why we'd like to thank our Founders Club Members for their generosity in helping us bring a neighborhood pub to the heart of downtown. Through our Founders Club, we were able to raise nearly $11,000 in startup funds for The Orion Pub!

Neighborly Taps

Downtown Sioux Falls is missing a neighborhood pub where everybody knows your name and relics of yesteryear exist in full force. Drop in and enjoy retro taps like Hamm's, Pabst Blue Ribbon, Grain Belt and Coors Banquet Beer on tap alongside local craft taps and regional favorites. 

We see The Orion as a gathering place for regular folks: an old fashioned watering hole that's a relaxed contrast over some of the more upscale spots in downtown Sioux Falls. 

Let's grab a beer.

Jon cut his teeth in the restaurant industry in high school and college. After over a decade in marketing and communications, Jon took a chance on a little neighborhood spot named Sunny's Pizzeria and got back into food and beverage. Three years later, he's joined forced with Thomas to create a relaxed local pub in the heart of downtown.
