This place is listed under restaurants on the Anchorage visitor's map. We were there because the name was interesting. We just wondered what Alaskan food would be. When we pulled up into the handicapped space out front this hulk of a guy comes walking out the door and stands there as I hang my tag on out rental car rear... More

My husband had read about this place in one of his guidebooks and really wanted the "authentic Alaskan bar" experience. So, we went to Chilkoot Charlie's our last night in Anchorage. My best advice would be to (1) eat beforehand as there isn't much available other than pizza or chicken wings, and (2) try to arrive before 10 PM as... More

Don't be thrown off by the metal detecter and mug shot taken at the door. I guess this place can get packed with more than 10 distinct bars under one roof. We came only to see the replica of the Bird House bar. My parents used to frequent the original and had plenty of stories to tell. You'll have such... More

Wow! What a night we had there! We went in to have a few drinks and to play trivia, Geeks who Drink. Just know our team was horrible but it was a lot of fun! I can say I am glad we took a taxi there! Neither of us could have drove home. This place is awesome! They have lots... More

Some guy at Koots came in after hours searching for his finger in the sawdust once, that's all! Sheesh! Me? Love the fact that you can walk around to hear different music genres. I no longer drink, but they used to be very good there. Lots of warm memories for me, just severed fingers for my poor hubby though!

Just walking through the front door, puts a big smile on my face. Well, it use to anyways. It's not as busy and fun like it use to be. And I think it has to do with some of the staff. They will kick you out for anything. I Had a friend get kicked out for tripping. They thought he... More

Well as far as bar's go this would probably have to be your best option because it is the biggest/ most diverse bar in Alaska. Each room has a diff theme and of course a diff style of music. My friend, his girl friend and I arrived sometime around 1 and were there until 345 when they closed. It wasn't... More

Well, this is where you find the Alaska Wildlife - That's for sure! OMG! This place was packed on a Friday night, each and every corner, room, section. This is definitely a total get-drunk-as-a-skunk and pick up and HO you can. And damn, everyone there was both. I was about the oldest specimen there. Went about 10-1am with friends who... More
