Quad City Bar Closes to Make Way for New Bridge

One last Happy Hour. One last Closing Time.

With a new Interstate 74 Bridge on the way, a favorite Quad City bar will open and close for the last time on Monday, July 15th, 2013.

On Sunday, July 14th, 2013, the Tiddley Tap in Bettendorf held a going-away party for all its customers.

83-year-old Annie Schroeder has owned the bar for nearly 30 years. Today, she shared with News 8 some of her favorite memories.

“We’ve had people get married down here,” she said. “We’ve had people get divorced down here. Our Halloween parties have been just so much fun with so many great costumes and we’ve had New Year’s Eve parties that have just been wonderful. People have had such a good time.”

Annie has possession of the bar until mid-September and plans to have an auction in late August.
