Saddle Up At The Cowboy Bar


Visitors from across the world typically have one location they must visit in Jackson Hole - the Million Dollar Cowboy Bar.  

They’ve seen pictures of the bucking bronc neon sign, they’ve heard about the saddle bar stools where they must have their pictures taken, and whether they like to two-step, cowboy swing, or just dance to their own beat, they want to kick their heels up on the dance floor at least once.  

The famed bar was the original location for a doctor’s office and the first bank in Jackson Hole back in the 1890’s.  When the bank was torn down, Ruby’s Café and Beer Garden was created, and then in 1937, Ben Goe purchased the bar and changed the name to the Cowboy Bar.  Following Prohibition the bar was the first establishment to receive a liquor license in the State of Wyoming.  

When Preston Parkinson purchased the bar in the mid-1940’s, he changed the name to Million Dollar Cowboy Bar, expanded it and is responsible for adding the knobbled pine that makes the interior so unique.  

A gas explosion in the basement in 1953 caused extensive damage to the bar and Mr. Parkinson was badly injured.  He recovered, rebuilt the bar and added the neon sign that has become an iconic symbol of Jackson Hole.  

In 1973 the bar changed hands again and the new owners installed the saddle bar stools and a red carpet made in London with the symbol and name of the Cowboy Bar.  

Today, the Cowboy is owned by Art & Carol Anderson who carry on the tradition of this classic western bar and some of the best live music in the valley.  Tourists and locals alike can be found sliding onto the saddles for a cold one, shooting pool and dancing the night away at Jackson Hole’s most beloved watering hole.
