Lonely Planet review

More than just Anchorage’s favorite meat market, ‘Koots,’ as the locals call it, is a landmark. The sprawling, wooden edifice has 22 beers on tap, 10 bars, four dancefloors and a couple of stages where almost every band touring Alaska ends up. Its newest addition is a replica of the legendary Bird House. The original was a log-cabin bar on Seward Hwy that was still standing but drunkenly slanted after the 1964 earthquake before burning down in 2002.
