Ok, lets list some of the best saloons, cantinas, & watering holes in both Leone's films,other SW's and American Westerns. Places you'd like to vist and have a drink in.


Here are a few of my favorites add yours.

For A few Dollars More:

White Rocks Saloon, blue smoke, tinkling piano music, poker, saloon girls, what more could you want.

The Auguacaliente Cantina a nice hole in the wall "south of the border flavor" type of place.


Once Upon A Time In The West:

Lionel Stander's Trading Post a sprawling water hole in the middle of Monument Valley with everything you need on the frontier.

Keoma:

The Gold Saloon very smokey, this one has some of the sleaziest looking saloon girls in a SW.

Death Rides A Horse;

Callahan's Saloon a bit more classy with a nice poker game set up, though it was segregated saloon.

Companeros:

The San Bernadino Hotel Cantina another Southwest accented whitewalled cantina.

Zaria's Saloon, gambling, whorehouse, with Zaria the "blonde that is blonde all over ".


Day Of Anger:

The Bowie Cantina looked like a good place for a plate of beans & rice.

McCabe & Mrs. Miller:

McCabes not a bad place for a drink and a game had a huge wood stove made out of a boiler.

Hombre:

Garcia's Stage Stop A great place to wet your whistle with a bottle of mescal.

The Mercenary:

Curley's Place border town saloon, a good place to avoid the crooked games of chance.

Did you mean Hombre? That's one of my favorite movies. That saloon has some great scenes.

My favorite is the El Paso Saloon in For a Few Dollars More.

Anyone ever notice that the same song is played on the piano at the Callahan Saloon and the Tucumcari Saloon.

Don't forget about the saloon in Flagstone! Get a drink, see an auction, maybe even catch a glimse of the lovely Claudia taking a bath!

  I like the San Antonio cantina in The Alamo.  Lots of dancing, drinking, partying.  And you might get a chance to see John Wayne and one of his Tennesseans have a good ole match of blowing feathers.

  And there's always the possibility that Frankie Avalon and Chill Wills will serenade the crowd a little.  Woo-hoo!

A warm welcome awaits you at Silvanito's of San Miguel.
Nice balcony view,you can watch an exchange of gifts by two friendly local families, be woken early by your host. The neighbour can be a bit noisy though with his hammering.

  As long as you don't mind the townsfolk digging gold out of your chest, when you're still alive!

  God, that scene makes me cringe everytime I see it.

That saloon in Django Kills Sad Place seemed a blast to me!   Cheesy

Specially the entertainment.. The bartenders wife's lips are out of sync to whats been sung. 'You'll be thinkin somebody spiked ya burben with opium?' Yo'll be lookin into the bottom of the your empty glass like this...  Shocked

The White Rocks Saloon and the Mesa Verde saloon. I was expecting someone to have chimed in with that one already. It has cieling fans!

I left my ultimate favorite saloon for last - The Flagstone saloon and the Monument Valley waterhole!
