With its unique Alaskan theme, its numerous multi-talented employees, and its wide variety of entertainment, Koot's continued to grow throughout the 80's and 90's to become the Alaska institution it is today. Koot's features a rustic Alaska atmosphere with sawdust-covered floors, 3 stages, 3 dance floors and 10 bars (11 in the summertime!) with padded tree stumps and beer kegs for seating. Literally filled to the rafters with such things as famous band photos & autographs, huge beer can collections, hilarious gags, and tons of Alaska memorabilia, a person could wander around Koot's for days and still not see everything. In it's 30-year history, Koot's has truly become an Alaskan institution. For many, it is as much a part of Alaska as mountains and glaciers. Koot's is considered a "Rite of Passage" for Alaskans coming of age and a definite "must see" for visitors to Alaska.
