Cowboy Club Grille & Spirits (Sedona, Arizona, U.S.A.)
Cowboy Club Grille & Spirits 241 State Route 89A Sedona, Arizona, U.S.A. If you have never been to Sedona, you must put it on you bucket list as it is incredibly beautiful here. The rocks are all a beautiful reddish colour and a must see. The Cowboy Club has been around for quite a while and has quite the history. Established in 1946, the Oak Tree Tavern, re-established it self in 1992 as the Cowboy Club, has been Sedona's most popular hangout for cowboys, movie actors, celebrities and locals for more than 65 years. It is the birthplace of the "Cowboy Artists of America" , by founding members, Joe Beeler, George Phippen, Charlie Dye and John Hampton formed the prestigious CAA in front of the fireplace at the Oak Creek Tavern on June 23, 1965. Celebs such as John Wayne, Burl Ives, Jane Wyman, Burt Lancaster, Maureen O'Hara, Robert Mitchum, Gene Autry, Joan Crawford, James Stewart and Rock Hudson just to name a few frequented this place. We didn't seek it out it just invited us in! It has a beautiful long wood bar that seats 15 people with big solid wood chairs that swivel. There are several half circle booths. Outside they have a sidewalk patio area with umbrellas. Inside it has a very subtle western theme. On the pub on the menu are such things as Buffalo, elk and rattle snake. For lunch we had a bowl of the Buffalo Chilli that came in a small cast iron pot. It was very good. We also had the Oak Creek Saloon Dip which came with black bran hummus, charred tomato cactus salsa and cilantro flat bread. That too was very good indeed! There is only 4 types of beer on tap and a suitable wine menu. There is a large selection of whiskey. There are also lots of hot weather drinks. My wife had their Famous Cowboy Margarita, wit was big and very good. Great little place and well worth stopping in and trying it out! The "Duke" himself was here, isn't that enough!
