The Iron Post (The Post) in downtown Urbana is a cluttered classic and it is also home to some of the best in local music- especially jazz. All kinds of bands and acts grace the place- usually every night of the week.
To call it bohemian in decor would be too kind – it’s just run down and old. And to call it bar food would be spot on- very basic. Food is fresh and the drinks are reasonable.
But you don’t do “The Post” for the mood lighting or caviar. It’s the sounds that make this place such a local prize. Sitting outside to chat in warm months is a good afternoon or evening move.
