We were looking to grab a few beers and hang out for the evening. We ended up walking in during a comedy show. The comedian was very funny and was an added bonus that we were not expecting. The place is your average type bar which is what we were looking for. They had a good selection of beer and... More

We visited Hooligans on a Thursday night in June to here 'Hobo Jim'. Also had dinner. Hobo Jim might be the best one man show I've ever witnessed. This guy is a magical songwriter and his easy, relaxed (eventually inebriated) style is almost too much fun. Boisterous, small crowd made us Iowans right at home. We've been in AK 2... More

I was born and raised on the Peninsula, but this was my first time to Hooligans (also known now as Copper Top Lounge). I don't do bars/saloons as I don't drink and I can typically get the same type of food elsewhere - but Hobo Jim was playing and we were meeting friends. So I figured why not give it... More

Servers were very friendly & nice but service was super slow. I waited almost 30 minutes for a simple glass of lemonade on a night that wasn't very busy. Totally enjoyed listening to Hobo Jim.

We pooped in for a drink with friends and found Hooliga ns had Hobo Jim performing. he is a wonderful iconic performer singing ballards of Alaska. He had the audience participate which added to the performance. There was a $5 cover charge as Hobo Jim was playing. the atmosphere was very good and we had a great night.

Visit only saloon and had a great time there. Prices were acceptable however. The beers are not so good, so we stuck on heavy fuel. Bartenders were friendly, especially Meagan. Thanks everybody there for good time.
