Fodor's Review

A sign frequently placed outside this historic bar reads: "Have an Alaskan with an Alaskan at the Alaskan," referring to the locally made beer, the clientele, and the bar itself. And it's true that this triple convergence can be found here any night of the week—the bar always has at least one type of Alaskan Brewing Company beer on tap, and the crowd is primarily local, even in summer. On the ground floor of the Alaskan Hotel, this is Juneau's most historically authentic

watering hole, with flocked-velvet walls, antique chandeliers, and vintage frontier-brothel decor. The atmosphere, however, is anything but dated, and the bar's live music and Thursday open-mic nights draw high-spirited, bordering on rowdy, crowds.
