The Golden Gate Saloon features an ornate bar that was shipped around the Horn. The oldest continually operating saloon west of the Mississippi, it has a patio and serves food. The elegant Restaurant has full family amenities. Both operate on the main floor. The original subterranean stonewalled saloon, which once was the end point of several mine tunnels, is also said to be haunted. It is now used only for special events. A popular destination for miners because the hotel also had a Gold Exchange, the hotel drew miners from the Empire Mine, which is 2½ miles away.
