The Bunkhouse Saloon is where you go if you're looking for some good live music. The bar has been around since 1953 and has always been known as a place to see emerging bands.
The beloved local bar has opened, closed, opened and closed, but is now back open and better than ever. The Bunkhouse is still focused on music featuring local acts on stage, but now the food is getting a culinary facelift with Chef Natalie Young (well known for Eat and Chow restaurants) taking over the kitchen.
A no-frills, dive bar type of place, the Bunkhouse exterior has somewhat of a Western feel, with slatted and log wood details and old carriage wheels around the outside. Speaking of the outside, be sure to hang out in the back yard, a great place to sit and drink at one of the picnic tables. The coolest thing in the yard though is the Listening Tree, an art installation that features headphones dangling from tree branches. Put them on and you'll hear all different kinds of music. It's a great way to discover something new.
Inside, you'll find all the beer and drinks you want and food that's a classic slice of Americana.
