Local bar

Came here on a Thursday night and there were several shows going on; the vibe was chill, but the bar area was on the small side. Not great but not bad either.

The Bird House is a must for visiters to Anchorage. If you are lucky enough to go there when Wanda is working you are in for a treat. The atmosphere is great and the beer is cold.

You have to be open for a very different experience, particularly in the Birdhouse Bar. It was all done in fun, but if you are prudish, it may not be for you. Despite the various underwear on the walls, we did not experience anything gross or disturbing. You can take part in the practical jokes or just sit back and... More

Great place to go. Only complaint is that it took so long to get inside. I was visiting from South Carolina to celebrate my sons 21st birthday. Very friendly atmosphere. The band was great even gave him a shout out. I would definitely go back just go a little earlier.

Went here after an Aces game. Was expecting the worst based on other reviews. Came just after 10pm, you have to go through a metal detector and have your picture taken, cover was $5. Beer selection is pretty good, maybe 15 or 20 drafts and prices reasonable $5.50. Large place with multiple rooms at least 3 different bars. They had... More

This is a pretty fun place. They had a DJ and nice dance floor. I did not get a chance to go into the "Canary" room. I will have to see it next time.
