“The best cowboy bar in the west. Est 1880.”

This popular saloon of today first got its start as the Grand Hotel in September, 1880. Declared as one of the finest hotels in the state, the hotel was luxuriously furnished, provided thick carpeting, and its walls were adorned with costly oil paintings. Providing 16 bedrooms, each with a "view," they were fitted with solid walnut furnishings, toilet stands, fine fixtures, and wallpaper. The lobby was equipped with three elegant chandeliers and more luxurious furnishings, while the kitchen boasted hot and cold running water and facilities to serve some 500 people in the span of a couple of hours. The hotel opened with an invitation only ball on September 9, 1880. Today you can get a good meal, dress up and relive the Old West, and hear some toe-tappin' live entertainment! Big Nose Kate's is reportedly infested with spirits. Many declare that the spirit of "Swamper," a former janitor still haunts the place. Many claim to have captured swamper in photographs. Still, many claim that the saloon is haunted by more spirits than genial swamper.
