Meet the Mistress of the Yukon Tavern

DSC06146Oh, the fever of the dance-hall

and the glitter and the shine,

The beauty, and the jewels,

and the whirl,

The madness of the music,

the rapture of the wine,

The languorous allurement of a girl!

-Robert William Service, “The Man from Eldorado.”

Mysterious, intriguing, adventurous—a lover, a mother, a friend. She’s the woman who rules a bar like a queen and back in the day no saloon was complete without her. At the Yukon Tavern in Southeast Portland, we’ve memorialized this feminine icon of the West in a portrait that has hung over our bar since the waning days of that rough and tumble period in our city’s history. Our “good-time girl” doesn’t have a name—if she ever did it’s since been lost to time—but we know she belongs here at the Yukon, reigning over us with her inescapable lure.

Come in and toast the Yukon Tavern’s “Mistress of the Yukon.” We feature two Happy Hours every day from 3-7:30pm & 10pm to close and she’ll be presiding over them both. Turned away from the action, of course, because our Mistress of the Yukon knows you’ll be looking!
