The Arctic Club Hotel
An eclectic group of adventurers, artists, and industrialists, inspired by the lure of the Yukon and North Pacific., formed the Arctic Club. Fueled by their fortunes made in the Gold Rush, the Arctic Club was a meeting place to create new connections between the East and West and to pursue the love of exploration.

This bar was built for random acts of glamour and decadence. – Conde Nast Traveler
