The doors of the legendary Mint Bar, 151 N. Main St. (tel. 307/674-9696), first swung open in 1907. The place operated as a speak-easy until Prohibition ended, then evolved into the prototypical Western bar; "Meet me at the Mint" became a catchphrase in these parts. It's still decorated just as it was in the 1940s, with all sorts of taxidermy and historical photos. There's an 8-foot Texas rattlesnake skin (said to have formerly sheathed an 80-pounder) above the bar and plenty of local color seated in front of it.
