The Salty Bronc is a new bar on The Strip that provides another bright stop for anyone seeking a retreat. Capitalizing on the western, red dirt vibes of Stillwater, the bar is true to Oklahoma country.

Officially called The Salty Bronc Saloon, the bar opened in August and is working on building a culture of live country music. The atmosphere, employees and events offer plenty to visitors. 

The bar is well lit with a layout that accommodates casual drinkers or larger crowds stopping by for the music. The décor mixes old fashioned saloons with modern touches. Quality images of artists such as Willie Nelson adorn the walls. and a cozy stage is nestled on one side of the room with a chandelier dangling overhead. 

The bartenders, including Nash Jackson, extend a friendly energy while whipping up beverages. Jackson said he enjoys working at the Salty Bronc and is educated on his drinks and bar activities. 

During the week, The Salty Bronc can be a relaxing place to grab a quick drink. Tuesdays are “Singo” nights, which is like Bingo with but with music. On Fridays and Saturdays, expect country artists to be performing. The Salty Bronc offers a wide range of live performances.

“It’s some local people and some people that are pretty famous,” Jackson said. “Like The Great Divide plays, and we had Lee Riley.”

Jackson said The Salty Bronc doesn't have a set date for The Great Divide, but it is expected to be soon.

The Salty Bronc is a clean bar to visit, and as one visitor said, “a good bar to start the night with.”

But no bar would be complete without a good drink.

“I’d say our most popular drink is probably one of our $2 Tall Boys,” Jackson said. “But our specialty drink is definitely the Pour Me A Vacation. It’s probably our most popular.”

A vacation sounds perfect.
