Bunny's was named for its original owner Bernard "Bunny" Fitzsimmons, who opened for business in 1936. Serving daily food specials for a mere thirty-five cents and ten-cent draft beers, Bunny's catered to locals and students alike. The neon sign that sits atop the roof is the original fixture from 1936. The sign was completely restored and returned to its rightful place atop the bar in 2004.

Over the years, major renovations, the most notable of these being the  the addition of the spacious beer garden, a perfect place to enjoy cold drinks on a warm summer evening. In recent years, the interior has undergone a complete remodel, from new hardwood floors to the latest addition of more comfortable seating options.  What hasn't changed though, is the friendly atmosphere and friendly staff  that makes Bunny's Tavern 'The best kept secret in Downtown Urbana.' Shhhh....don't tell anyone!
