The Avenue Bar, Since 1914

Go where the crowds go for old-time Alaskan hospitality.

The Avenue Bar is one of the oldest social locations in Anchorage, serving all walks of life since 1914. The establishment began in the early 1900’s as a pool hall and became a legal drinking establishment at the end of prohibition. The bar was renamed the Union Club around 1941 and became The Avenue Bar in 1984.

The Avenue Bar is your everyday local dive bar, ‘with a touch of class.’
