Now called Whiskey Jacques, this bar was formerly a quasi-legal casino known as the Alpine Club. Ernest Hemingway used to visit the location to drink and gamble while he lived in Idaho. Mary Hemingway described the place as "very gay and fun."

About seven blocks from here is a school named after Hemingway, the Ernest Hemingway Elementary School.
