Great place to grab a drink and socialize! Very friendly and knowledgeable staff. Clean and decorated to perfection. Good drinks and a nice porch out back to view the Fox River. Games to play while you drink or just relax and watch the birds on the river.

A comfortable and inviting place to gather with friends, make new friends, and wonderful memories. The family friendly environment and view of the Fox River are just a couple reasons we visit frequently.

We love Ford’s always welcoming, always clean. Feels like you are at the friends bar on TV. Have made many wonderful friends from there!

At first glance, Ford’s Gathering wine and craft beer bar is indistinguishable from its persona with Wisconsin Special Properties LLC main office, Profit Protection Advisors, Snow Law, Thomas J. Ward Insurance, Greg Ott Sterns Lending, Shawna Czoschke Caliber Lending located on the second floor. As you walk through the door of Ford’s Gathering you are welcomed by its thoughtful interior design with tourist-titillating vintage tat that celebrates and honors Princeton’s deep historical roots.  Almost inaudibly, R&B and Big Band music nag on in the background while, on one wall, a 70’ Long Sepia tone artesian mural by local renowned artist Ms. Robin Wallenfang relays the history of Princeton dating back to the late 1800’s.   One-of-a-kind repurposed and handcrafted furniture by local restoration artist, Chad McFarland of Misfit Salvage adorns the space and is available to purchase while supplies last. This welcoming gathering space has one crucial thing going in its favor: it is run by Rick and Rochelle Ford, for whom Princeton has been home since 1996.  Community comes first for the Ford’s and it shows when you get hungry – tasty notions from neighboring businesses such as Horseradish, Pizza Factory, Buckhorn, and Blue Moon Café all deliver here, as they are just down the street! Ford’s Gathering Place features a selection of hand crafted beers, a fun filled wine selection (you get to pull a bottle from the wall), the full Deep Eddy Infused Vodka collection along with various other high end spirits.  All spirits are available for $5, and cash-and-carry bottles of wine for $25. Downtown Princeton comes to life again every Saturday afternoon with live music from 1-3 pm, snacks on the bar and year round beautiful outdoor covered patio seating with breathtaking views of the Fox River. This is one of the newest hot spots in growing downtown Princeton, and with its friendly staff, comfortable seating and free Wi-Fi it guarantees that each visit to Ford’s Gathering is sure to be a great and memorable one. Come gather with us and enjoy fine spirits, delectable local food and the camaraderie of the Princeton, Wisconsin community.
