Anchorqage Bars

When it comes to bars and nightlife Anchorage has it in abundance. The nights are either very long or very short but no matter which you will find a great bar to relax, meet friends and enjoy an evening out.

Chilkoot Charlie’s

When a bar has earned the reputation of “world famous” you have certain expectations and when Playboy has named it the Best Bar in America you know it really has to be something out of the ordinary That description fits Koots to a tee, This is a bar that doesn’t understand the meaning of small, simple or one-dimensional. From their very simple roots as a local piano bar they have grown into a multi faceted entertainment and drinking venue. The theme is Alaskan from the saw dust covered floor to the tree stump seats but that doesn’t begin to describe what you will find here. There are three stages, three dance floors and 10 bars. There are different themes in different rooms and you can hear swing music in one place and hard rock in another.

Its part museum, part rocking dance club and all fun. Come down, have a beer, dance a little, mix and mingle and enjoy the best that Anchorage has to offer.
