Humpy's is the central hub in the downtown bar scene, located right across from the Alaska Center for the Performing Arts. It’s a long, crowded, cheerful place with live acoustic rock, folk and blues, more often than not. It’s got dozens of beers on tap, and far better food than you’d expect. The place takes its name from pink salmon; when they spawning, males develop a bulbous hump in their backs, which earned the species its nickname, “humpies.”
