They all came searching for one thing. Somewhere temperatures often dropped below freezing. Somewhere covered with snow and ice. Somewhere that recently discovered gold. The rumors of mountains full of gold nuggets in the Yukon in August of sent people running to Alaska by the thousands.
But all that work during the day required a release as the sun dipped below the horizon.
But others would head into town and have a drink or dinner at the local saloon. One such saloon was the Red Onion in Skagway. Built in to accommodate the need for food and drink, this local watering Lady in red dress last frontier bar had plenty of liquor to chase away the blues and cold of an unsuccessful dig. Downstairs men and women filled their stomachs, while upstairs men could satisfy a different kind of appetite with the woman of their choice.
The Red Saloon still stands at the corner of 2 nd and Broadway right in the middle of Skagway. While food and drink are still served, the bordello is just for show. Downstairs you can enjoy anything from their full bar, as well as pizza, nachos, soup or a salad.
The food is delicious, filling and full of flavor and spice, while their drinks pack a delicious punch. The tour begins when a lady decked out in a beautiful corset and bustle stands atop the back stairway and announces that the tour is about to start. Sitting on the piano are 10 dolls. See, each doll was a raggedy replica of the prostitutes living at the Onion.
A patron would scan the 10 dolls and pick the one he wanted to spend time with… but that was only if she was sitting up. So, the gentleman could either wait downstairs until she was finished or pick an alternate. As the tour continues, you see the rooms which were tiny; maybe 50 square feet max. But they were full! Each girl got to decorate her room as she wanted. There are layers and layers of wall paper and paintings still hanging on each and every wall in the bordello showing how tastes changed from girl to girl.
All the rooms look the same save one: that room belonged to none other than the famous Diamond Lil. All that money had to go somewhere, so more often than not she turned it in for a diamond or two. Lil had so many of the priceless gems in fact, she had one embedded in her front teeth. If a man wanted the honor of lying with her inside her opulent room and queen sized bed, it would cost him a cool thousand. At six feet tall, Lil towered over most of her clients.
She was beautiful, always well dressed and quite the entertainer. Lil and her women may no longer live at the Saloon, but visitors and employees alike say her spirit still visits the restaurant and museum. But no matter what time of day or year you make your way north, Skagway and the Red Onion are well worth a visit. There may no longer be gold up in them thar hills, but the beautiful drive up the Klondike Highway is full of treasures all its own.
But no trip to Skagway is complete without a stop in the Red Onion. Jennifer Richmond has been cooking ever since she could hold a wooden spoon. Her food blog, Kitchy Cooking, appeared in when she realized she could combine her love of vintage life with cooking and writing.

If the doll happened to be laying on her back, she was occupied. Getting her name because of her affinity for the sparkly stone, Madam Lil had money to burn.
