As in the title, this is a fun time. Stopped in for a nice cold beer and snack (the salmon dip was pretty good, though a huge serving) and to take in the antics. Not for children, the prim and proper or the jealous type - they are going to move in on your man, so have a sense of... More

Very informative. Colourful. Performers were excellent. Impromptu performance of HAPPY BIRTHDAY was unexpected but enjoyed by all.

I hope the owners reconsider the way they present the museum information. We'd really looked forward to this tour, having read that the host/guides were dressed as showgirls from the 1800's and were very humorous and informative. Only a few days beforehand we'd attended a very entertaining comedy show in Skagway with period costumed actors playing gold rush good time... More

The food is GREAT. The six of us ended up going there to twice to eat. It's pretty crowded to get into. We took the tour of the brothel and that was interesting.

This was a good tour into the lives of the miners and ladies of the night. Very funny and informative. Please note NSFW and not for kids. THis has pictures of the brothels and the ladies sans clothing. Would recommend for tour.
