“Great bar, free wi fi”
Reviewed 3 August 2013

Wi fi is always at a premium in Alaska and this bar gives you free wifi with a purchase. Alaskan Beer is great, I liked the Amber but tried the Stout as well.

“A blast into the past”
Reviewed 11 July 2013

Recently I had visitors form out of town and brought them here for a beer. After living here for 25 years, it is easy to forget how wonderful some of the relics are that are right under my nose. The door is old and ALaska and much less tacky and obnoxious than the Red Dog. Thursday is open mic and often there is music on Friday and Saturday. We went on a Monday and it was dead, which was perfect for wanting to have a conversation. I recommend the Alaska Strawberry Wheat, on tap.

“Fun in a Beautiful Hotel”
Reviewed 4 June 2013

This is the bar in the Alaska Hotel -- both the hotel and the bar are old and very beautiful. A plus is it isn't quite as much of a tourist stop as some bars (e.g., The Red Dog Saloon) in Juneau. The atmosphere is what I would term "gold-rush Alaska." Very cool, beautiful stained glass windows. We went after dinner and there were very few people there, but listening to general talk, most people seemed to be locals. We sat at the bar and chatted with the bar tender, very friendly and social. We had a fantastic time.

“Great Atmosphere!”
Reviewed 27 May 2013

We were the only people in the place. I would be great to be there with lots of people! Just in from a cruise and wanted to try the local beer. Waitress was very nice and friendly. A great place to check out with the locals!

“Fun Bar With a Lot of History”
Reviewed 3 February 2013

If you like feeling like you have gone back in time, check out this fun bar. It is in the heart of down town Juneau! The service was great.
