Relax in the Historic Gold Rush Saloon


Enjoy your favorite drink at the Historic Gold Rush Saloon

International visitors delight in this romantic saloon with its original 19th Century redwood bar over which thousands of dollars in gold dust was spent.

Order your favorite beverage, with or without alcohol, or select from our award-winning wine list. Relax and ponder what it may have felt like to be a gold miner in the 1850s drinking at this historic saloon.

Perhaps you'll meet one of the movie-makers spending their idle time in the saloon while working on one of the area's many film productions.

The Historic National Hotel's wine list has won numerous awards:


• Restaurant Hospitality - Best Wine Competition
• Merit Award - American Wine List
• Wine Spectator Award of Excellence

The wines served at the Historic National Hotel are all from the Gold Country. In the foothills of the Sierra Nevada mountains, this wine area ranges from Mariposa to Nevada City and includes the counties of Mariposa, Tuolumne, Calaveras, Amador, El Dorado, Placer and Nevada Counties.

Today these Gold Country wines are winning top awards in wine tasting. Almost all of the wineries represented here are small (15,000 cases per year) and family owned.
