Butch Cassidy, The Sundance Kid, Calamity Jane and Buffalo Bill Cody all stayed here... Now you can too!
In the rip-roaring days of early Wyoming, the saloon at the Occidental Hotel was famous far and wide. In the barroom, the lawful and the lawless played faro and poker... flirted with pretty ladies... drank copious quantities of powerful spirits... and occasionally shot up the place.
One visitor in the early days called the Occidental Saloon 'a regular gambling hell,' where high-stakes poker games sometimes continued for days.
In 1908, the original rough barroom was replaced with one of the most elegant saloons in Wyoming. An imposing back bar with stained glass accents was installed, along with an intricately embossed tin ceiling, and impressive period decorations everywhere. All of this has been preserved and restored, for you to admire today as you enjoy a soda pop... or something stronger.
