#78 Salty Dawg Saloon (Homer Spit, Alaska)

The Salty Dawg Saloon is housed in a late-19th-century building, one of the original cabins from the town site in Homer. Opened in 1957, the low-ceiling bar (tall folks have to duck to enter) is an Alaska institution. The fun décor includes life rings, dollars, and endless bric-a-brac (for years, the eclectic curios included a prosthetic leg, until someone stole it to take it back to its owner). Ask the friendly bar staff, who have been tending the bar for decades, for signature cocktails like the Salty Dog (vodka — the original was made with gin — and grapefruit juice with a salted rim) and the Duck Fart (a shot purportedly originating in Kodiak, comprised of Kahlúa, Bailey’s Irish Cream, and Crown Royal).
