What about the one from "Il Grande silenzio" ?

The saloon itself isn't special, but while it's snowing and the wind is howling on the outside, it's looks like heaven.

Probably the Snow Hill Saloon.
Yes, that one. Don't know his actual name though.

I've always been into snow.

Actually the two saloons in DOC (1971) and in TOMBSTONE (1993) were true to life and accurate to what was actually in Tombstone at the time the story takes place. The L-shaped building in DOC is really there and it's still a saloon.

I like the saloon at the end of "Three Godfathers" the one John Wayne stumbles into during the Christmas celebration with the baby.

All of Leone's saloons are great. Specifically, the El Paso and White Rocks saloons from FAFDM are the 2 greatest saloons of all-time.

Of course, Western saloons usually look better when they are full!

But I love the saloon in Saddle the Wind (especially when the great tough guy Charles McGraw is in it!)

Here are some other nice ones that come to mind:

Doc -- (the one from the opening scene; that dingy little saloon perfectly captures the mood of that scene)

San Antonio -- I like that big open feel, almost like a club on South Beach  ;)

The Proud Ones Honest John's joint

My Darling Clementine

And of course, Everyone Comes to Rick's!  ;)

There are three types of people in the world, my friend: those who can add, and those who can't.
