The golden gate saloon


Dust Off Your Boots and Sit a Spell 

The Golden Gate Saloon is known as the old­est con­tin­u­ously oper­at­ing saloon west of the Mis­sis­sippi. As leg­end has it, not even Pro­hi­bi­tion could keep the good times and spir­its from flow­ing in our bar. Stephen and Clara Smith were among the first to invest in this boomtown known today as Grass Valley. They built the Golden Gate Saloon which sadly, was destroyed by a fire in 1855 along with most of Grass Valley. The Smiths rebuilt the popular saloon as a one story fieldstone building with a brick façade, making it safer from the threat of another fire.
