This charming bar is located on the first floor of the Gold Rush-era City Hotel in historic Columbia. It is the perfect venue for adventurous travelers looking for a place to spend an evening savoring the Gold Rush atmosphere and meeting some colorful local characters, including a Mark Twaine impersonator. Drinks are generous, sitting is comfortable, and the wine list includes several selections from Sierra foothills wineries. Being a history enthusiast, I enjoy everything about this comfortable, fascinating 1860s saloon, but I go there for the pizza. Truly handmade with local produce, including locally cured olives, the What Cheer Saloon offers some of the best pizza I have ever tasted. Try the vegetarian with a glass of Stevenot Winery merlot. You will know why this place is called the What Cheer.
