Elm Waterhole

Step back in time at the Elm Waterhole Saloon, an amazing pub inspired by the pioneer spirit of the 19th century. Belly up to an antique bar, complete with carved wood details and a polished brass foot rail. Whether you order a whiskey (or sip on a soft drink), you’ll soak up the saloon’s authentic atmosphere while daydreaming about the ways of the Old West.
