Great character! Costumes were fun, service was good, the piano player was hilarious. My Dad really enjoyed it there, real old fashioned and fun.

It is worth stopping in and at least having a beer. Lots of history. You can take a tour of the Brothel if you choose to do so or just hang out.

Wonderful watering hole with a quaint if not short history. Good drinks, good food, not too pricy. Took the brothel tour, it was worth the $10. This place was only a brothel for two years, but very interesting the way things were run.

Two-Story brothel museum.Upstairs the old brothel is still preserved as a museum where the girls will take you on a (paid but well worth it) tour full of jokes and history about the place. Food and beer are all good and the place is always packed. Part of a stop on an Alaska tour.

It is a great diversion in Skagway. Drawback: it is stinking crowded! Music was entertaining. Food was pretty good. It's a nice stop if you don't mind waiting

A bunch of things wrapped up in one. A must to visit. Seating wasn't the greatest. Could have had more.

This was the first stop on our bus tour. It included breakfast and a tour of the brothel. The tour guides were dressed as Soiled Doves and were very funny. They knew every joke in the book. Well worth the stop. (get your $5 ready gents).

Well this tour was tacked onto the end of bus trip to suspension bridge in Canada. Thought it would be tacky and waste of time but was very enjoyable. Our guide Lacey Knickers was both informative and very funny.

We arrived at this popular eating and drinking establishment we thought, before the noontime rush. Wrong! By 11:30, the place was full, and had a wait list. We waited our turn, and had plenty of time to drink in the "atmosphere". It is a former bar and brothel, so the young women who who work as waitresses or bartenders are... More
