Alaskan Saloons - 360° VR Video - Red Dog in Juneau and Red Onion In Skagway (4K) 

This is a 360° VR video of  our visit to a couple of the more famous saloons in Alaska.  Although they are mainly tourist attractions now, historically they are important to the gold rush that occurred in the late 1800s.

The Red Dog Saloon is a drinking establishment at 278 South Franklin Street in Juneau, Alaska, U.S. The Red Dog has been recognized by the Alaska Legislature for its longevity as the oldest man-made tourist attraction in Juneau. Founded during Juneau's mining era, the Saloon has been in operation for decades. For a time, "Ragtime Hattie" played the piano in white gloves and a silver dollar halter top. Later, in territorial days, the owners would often meet the tour boats at the docks with a mule that wore a sign saying, "follow my ass to the Red Dog Saloon." 

A visit to Skagway would not be complete without a stop at the Historic Red Onion Saloon. Located on the corner of 2nd & Broadway, the Red Onion is a favorite among visitors and locals alike. Built in 1897, the Red Onion Saloon operated as one the finest bordellos in Skagway and though times have changed, the spirit has not.

The music you hear is the famous Phineas Poon, or Tag to his friends.

@Thad Ortiz MD I was with someone who was born there and she gave me lots of insight. The sound track was from a very famous bar piano player that died a few years ago but someone else I met had some recordings from him.
