Juneau, Alaska’s Cap­i­tal City

Small town charm cou­pled with nat­u­ral beauty

Where Alaska - - Where Now - Alaska -

Din­ing and Li­ba­tions With more than 70 restau­rants, this small city of­fers plenty of din­ing choices, from gourmet to fast food.

Start your evening with some ex­pertly pre­pared cock­tails or a glass of wine at the Bub­ble Room Lounge in the his­toric West­mark Bara­nof Ho­tel. This lounge is known for friendly bar­tenders plus the best cushy bar seats.

The Wine Bar at the Sil­ver­bow of­fers small plates to nosh on and flights of hand-se­lected wines like the aptly named “Bor­feaux- Red blends but not from you know where.” Don’t miss the home­made Cheesy crack­ers served with an olive tape­nade—wildly ad­dic­tive.

The Tri­an­gle Club (across from the old steam clock) is a lo­cal wa­ter­ing hole, loved by many. This his­toric Juneau bar serves up hot dogs and good con­ver­sa­tion.

The Rook­ery Café pro­vides stel­lar cof­fee and freshly-baked good­ies by day and a ro­tat­ing menu of lo­cally-sourced and sea­sonal in­gre­di­ents at night. Their char­cu­terie & cheese plat­ter is a must and you can never go wrong with the spe­cials. Reser­va­tions are ad­vised.

SALT of­fers mod­ern Alaskan cui­sine for both lunch and din­ner. Start with the Pommes Frites and be sure to or­der the Veg­etable Welling­ton. Nice se­lec­tion of cock­tails, craft beers and wine.

For wa­ter­front din­ing, go to The Hangar on the Wharf, it has some­thing for ev­ery­one, es­pe­cially those with kids. Ask for a booth and en­joy watch­ing the sea­planes take off and land. The ex­pan­sive menu fea­tures ev­ery­thing from Alaska seafood to top sir­loin. Con­sis­tently good, its at­mos­phere can’t be beat! Open for lunch and din­ner.

Gold­belt Mount Roberts Tramway pro­vides a unique view of Juneau and Gastineau
