What's In A Name?

Located in Kitchener-Waterloo, a region steeped in culture and history, The Rich Uncle Tavern looked back to find inspiration for its name and in doing so, did not need to search very far.

In the late 1800’s, Joseph Winterhalt, a local cigar manufacturer in Kitchener, which was then known as the City of Berlin, created the “Rich Uncle” line of cigars and boasted they were “10 cents and worth it”. 

In honour of proud craftsmen like Mr. Winterhalt, The Rich Uncle Tavern chose to garner its namesake from the unique brand of cigar that was once manufactured and sold on the very block we now reside.
