Fodor's Expert Review Red Onion Saloon
Skagway was once host to dozens upon dozens of watering holes in its gold rush days, but the Red Onion is pretty much the sole survivor. The upstairs was Skagway's first bordello, and you'll find a convivial crowd of Skagway locals and visitors among the scantily clad mannequins who represent the building's former illustrious tenants. A ragtime pianist tickles the keys in the afternoons, and local musicians strut their stuff on Thursday night. Food is available in the bar. The saloon closes up shop for winter.
