Kennedy Meadows Saloon

As in most high country areas where packers, drovers, cowboys, and backpackers gather, a waterhole is a must! Built by Kennedy Meadows in the 1890's, "The Saloon" has served drinks for the packers, hollywood stars, politicians and to everyday tourists for over 100 years.

This old fashioned Saloon at Kennedy's offers beer, wine and liquor. The jukebox and dancing floor, loaded with old country music, make for a good time.
