The Red Dog Saloon is the most famous of the colourful drinking establishments in Juneau. It's only been in its current highly-visible location since 1988 when it was moved intact from a couple of blocks up Franklin Street. As recently as 2012, the saloon was expanded slightly to accommodate the hordes of tourists who come in when the cruise ships arrive. One of the notable pieces of memorabilia hanging on the walls is a pistol that Wyatt Earp checked and then didn't claim before he left for the goldfields of Nome. If you ring the bell on the left of this photo, you're buying a round for the house - in the summer that could get very expensive!
