Just downstairs from Devil's Pool, you'll find a warm welcome at Buzzard Bar. There's comfortable seating indoors amid antique appointments and the usual collection of stuffed, furred and feathered friends, or you may choose an outdoor setting on our patio or overlooking the pool. Every evening, we'll feature local entertainers including our very own Singin’ Cowboy playing and singing all your favorites. Buzzard Bar is a non-smoking establishment.
