Assistant Manager @ Chrome Horse Saloon What’s your story behind the bar?

I was working at my hometown bar when I was about 15. I did everything from cooking, serving, to helping out behind the bar. I started at Chrome five years ago, and have been there ever since.

What’s Chrome Horse’s secret?

The Chrome Horse is a family and businessfriendly spot during the day, then turns into a saloon-style hangout at night. People love the unique décor complete with Harley theme and great live music. It’s never the same crowd twice. I think that’s what sets us apart. You see such a variety of people who love the place, from businessmen with modern bikes to the die-hard bikers with classic rides.

Tell us about rebuilding after the flood?

There were five or six of us that would come in every day mucking, hauling out pieces we had set up on the second level thinking that would be a safe height. I really got to know my co-workers and it made me really appreciate the people I work with.

Your regulars helped too, right?

They were great. We’d be working all day, and our regulars would come in with food, water, help out for a little while, whatever we needed. At the end of the day we’d just hang out like we would when we were all at the bar. It made all the difference.

Now you’re back. What’s new?

It’s much more of a saloon style, a lot more woodwork, rustic feel. We have an 84-foot horseshoe-style bar which seats 45. It’s still the Chrome Horse, just some fun additions.

It was like nothing I’ve ever experienced.
