Whiskey Wild Saloon, the prototype of an anticipated chain of entertainment-oriented, country-style bars, is to open Saturday night as midtown Sacramento's latest dining and drinking venue.
But don't drop by expecting the joint's regular menu, which likely won't be introduced until after Thanksgiving, says general manager Kirsten Look. Then, it will be "high-class pub grub with some Southwestern influence," including a pulled-pork sandwich, burgers, salads and wings. In the meantime, the bar's casual fare will be catered.
By day, Whiskey Wild Saloon is to be a "fun and casual" bar. By night, it will be more entertaining, she says. The staff has been hired in part for its skills at singing, dancing and the like as well as its ability to be hospitable. Think Max's Opera Cafe with a twang.
Larry Wycoff and Jon Glover are the owners. The saloon's Web site describes Wycoff as a drag-racing and hot-rod enthusiast, Glover as "modern-era biker." The bar's hours initially will be "spotty," says Look. Eventually, it's to be open 11 a.m.-2 a.m. daily. Whiskey Wild Saloon is at 1910 Q St.
