Happy Hour at the Last Chance Saloon by TeresaB

Happy Hour at the Last Chance Saloon by 


Located in Jack London Square in Oakland, California (USA), and yes, the slant of the bar is very real. I did not take this on an angle, and the floor is just as slanted as the bar. I nearly fell forward when I stepped down into the saloon. I’m not sure if they brought the saloon from Alaska, but they did bring part of the house that Jack London lived in while he was in Alaska. The tavern certainly looks like it should have been in Alaska and not in the city of Oakland!! Even though the bartender looks really serious, he was a very pleasant fellow!

    Cool! Memory lane, for me! Is Jack’s tiny cabin still beside the joint?? Great shot – hope you had a great time, too! He actually lived in Oakland for a time, thus the name of the area… although I’m sure it’s changed completely even since I saw it last (2004).

  • Thanks so much Nadya. Yes, his little cabin is still there. Really was a fun place to visit, but the slant of the saloon nearly had me on my face when I stepped down into the place!! LOL!!

    Wow how neat, you can feel like too many drinks without even one!! Great capture! Love it!

  • Thanks so much icesrun! You know, I never thought of it that way, but you are so right!! Great concept…tipsy inside the saloon…. totally sober as soon as you step out the door!! LOL!! I guess they should do this to the floor of all taverns!!
