Great vibe for evening and late night relaxation. Often have live bands which energizes the dance floor on weekends especially throughout the summer season. Always can call in advance to see if live entertainment is scheduled.

If you've never been in a real saloon you should try this one. Go in the morning and ask for Bill (the owner) you'll find you have made a friend for life.
