The Midway was originally called the "Midway Confectionary and East Side Bus Depot" according to the 1932 Oregon City phone listing. Owned and operated by "Curly" Mullin offering a variety of sundries as well as haircuts, it is said that when prohibition was repealed in 1933 that Curly was done cutting hair and decided to change the Midway to a tavern. The Midway was originally only 900 sq ft and offered only 1 beer on tap, Olympia or "Oly". The Midway slowly grew in size over the years and was a local hangout with many longtime Oregon City residents. Stories are often told by younger clientele about their grandparents or great grandparents "hanging out" at the Midway. Purchased in 1995 by the current owners, the Midway was due for a makeover. Running on a shoestring budget it took a lot of blood, sweat, and tears to transform the Midway into the full-service bar and restaurant that it is today. So come on down and be a part of Oregon City history.
