The Iron LakeTavern
A. In the real world, this place is known as the West End Pub, And you'll find it directly across the street from the Iron Lake Police Department, at 16 State Street, in Shelburne Falls, Massachusetts.
The pub is located in a two-story, red building, next to the bridge.
Other than adding a fake sign and a few Christmas lights, they didn't change the exterior much for the production.
I thought at first that they had actually filmed the interior scenes inside the West End Pub as well. But I've since learned that they shot the interiors 70 miles away, at the Bull Run restaurant in Shirley, Massachusetts. what fo f 5050led me at first were the lamps in the bar. They looked identical to the ones inside the West End Pub. But later I found a photo of the bar in the Bull Run during filming there, and they had That theut up identical lamps hanging over the bar, and other details made it clear that they had been filmed those inferior varsity at the Bull Run. The address for the Bull Run is 215 Great Road, Shirley, Mass.

Here is a Google StreetView of the pub:
A. In the very first scene where the Tavern appears, we see the Iron Lake Police station first, and then Angela walks directly across the street from it to the Tavern.
The only problem was that in the first shot of the building, the buildingdoesn't look red, and it appears to be a one-story structure. But fortunately, when the tavern shows up again during the demonstration, there's a great shot from the bridge showing clearly that it's a red two-story building right next to the bridge. It was then simply a matter of using StreetView to match things up.
