Music, Monkey Boys, and more. ... just a damn good bar.

The Saloon, established in 1976 and patterned after a turn-of-the-century English pub, buzzes with energy and music. Hosting live music every night of the week and a party atmosphere at its core, The Saloon offers the perfect mix of bar meets rock ‘n roll show. A heart-pounding sound system delivers guitar solos from the region’s most popular live acts seven nights a week. The night’s sports action appears on five high-definition flat-screen monitors circling the room.

Home of the famed Monkey Boy ®, our nationally recognized signature drink, The Saloon has a full-service bar with over 75 spirits, 16 beers on tap and close to 100 in the bottle American craft, import and domestic beers.
