the original saloon
The original Beuchert's Saloon was founded in this same location in 1880 by John Ignatius Beuchert, a German immigrant and prominent Capitol Hill businessman. Legend has it that throughout Prohibition, Beuchert's operated as a speakeasy, under the guise of a sewing machine store and gramophone shop.
