Chilkoot Charlie’s (2435 Spenard Road, Anchorage) – located in the heart of historic Spenard, Chilkoot Charlie’s (first opened in 1970) is known among locals as “Koot’s”. This bar began as a neighborhood watering hole with a live piano bar. Since Alaska’s oil boom years, Chilkoot’s has drawn in live bands from all over – including famed ones like Metallica, Ted Nugent, Bad Company Bryan Adams, Steve Miller Band, the Doobie Brothers, Ozzy Osbourne, Aerosmith and Van Halen, to name a few. This local nightspot now features 3 stages, 3 dance floors and 10 bars!
