The Sport's Bar has been around for years and always been a popular spot. But with the closure of Carl's and Latitudes it is packed every weekend and has a decent crowd most nights. A large space with pool tables, darts, lots of tables and a large bar. Don't have live music very often but a DJ most nights and a dance floor.
Dress Code: Try and clean off the fish smell if you want anyone to dance with you.
The old Elbow Room was sold earlier this year to two of the bar tenders from Carl's, Belinda & Lisa. Was closed while they fixed the place up and is now open for business as "Latitudes". Perhaps in memory of Jimmy Buffett who playd at the old Elbow Room in 1990? They have done a nice job fixing the interior up while retaining some of the old flavor. They have definitely beefed up the liquor selection.
Live music and dancing on weekends.

Reid Brewer with the Marine Advisory Program has been able to snag many scientists passing through town to give a presentation of their work and findings. These lectures are held at The Museum of the Aleutians and are sometimes set up at the last minute. Call the Museum to find out if any are scheduled when you're in town. We have heard some world class scientists and researchers and it's great to get a peek at what they are working on. And it is a pleasant break from the bars and all that cigarette smoke:)
Dress Code: Try and not smell too fishy - it's a small room the lectures are held in.
