The Sourdough Saloon at The Downtown, a Coast Hotel, is home to the world-famous Sourtoe Cocktail: a local wonder featuring a shot of Yukon Jack garnished with a real human toe. According to local lore, you are not considered a true Yukoner until the gnarly toe has touched your lips as you take the shot. Upon completing the drink, you become an official member of the Sourtoe Cocktail Club and receive a certificate for your brave accomplishment.

Great Vacation Spot to Visit

Rasika saved my laptop when I forgot it on checking out and got it to me minutes before my Air North flight 549 took off on Sat May 28. She was so helpful and courteous, a life saver. She got the flight held so the driver could deliver it. Highly competent, professional and gracious.
