According to the tavern's official history, it began operation as "a grocery and supply store sometime in the late 1920’s to early 30’s" and eventually became a gathering place for those who hunted or fished in what is now the Cordova Park area. Its history as a bar is dated from 1935, when Wisteria was issued a "beer only" liquor license by the State of Florida.
Though the parcel on which Wisteria stands is zoned residential, the City of Pensacola allows the bar to operate under a grandfather clause. According to Wisteria, "the conditions allow operation at the current maintained state with no increases in the size of the building or changes in the configuration of the business."
