About One Shot Charlie's
Welcome to One Shot Charlie’s – a place where history and hospitality blend seamlessly to create an unforgettable experience for all who walk through our doors.
Our story begins over a century ago when Harrison, once a small squatting community, underwent a remarkable transformation in the late 1800s. The completion of the O.R. & N. railroad branch, connecting Harrison to Teko, played a pivotal role in the town’s rapid growth, propelling it from a humble settlement to a bustling and thriving town within a mere 12 years.
In 1917, the iconic I.O.O.F. building, standing tall with its unique architectural charm, became a prominent landmark in Harrison. Nestled within these historic walls, the Oasis bar opened its doors during the town’s booming years. Throughout the decades, the bar has remained steadfast, though its layout and name have evolved to reflect the changing times and tastes of our cherished patrons.
Fast forward to 1949, when a man named Charlie Jenicek took the reins of the establishment. Under his care and vision, the legendary “One Shot Charlie’s” was born, etching its name in the hearts of locals and visitors alike. Charlie, known for his warm personality and dedication, made One Shot Charlie’s a beacon of camaraderie, good times, and exceptional service.
