The Alaskan Hotel & Bar has carved out quite a reputation for itself not only for providing visitors with a comfortable place to stay in Juneau, AK, but as a reliable location for local entertainment as well. With live music every day of the week, their historic hotel has become a hot spot for tourists and residents alike looking to appreciate tunes, relax, and enjoy a few rounds at the full bar.
Sunday through Tuesday at the Alaskan Hotel & Bar, you can watch the Shawn McCole Band perform authentic bluegrass songs. And from 4-7 p.m. you can listen along, grab a table, and ask the bartender for your favorite drink. The band is a local live music staple, so you can count on hanging around and singing along with great country tunes.
If you’re a musician yourself, then plan on bringing your instrument on Thursday nights. At this open mic night, you can mingle with other singer-songwriters and perform a few of your own pieces in a supportive, casual environment. It’s an excellent way test out a newly composed tune or network with local artists.
In the past, the Alaska Hotel & Bar has hosted live music of all genres, including soul, classic rock, and rockabilly. They’ve also hosted local and touring acts from popular music destinations like New Orleans to keep their customers happy and please their musical tastes. Aside from the days and times mentioned above, you can catch live music on Fridays and Saturdays from 9:30 p.m. to 2 a.m., as well as on Wednesdays from 4-7 p.m.
