Westminster Hotel

Open Year Round

975 Third Ave


The Westminster Hotel, in Dawson City, Yukon, has been in operation since the early 1900’s. It is a veritable patchwork quilt of Yukon history, with different sections at one time serving as offices for the Klondike Thawing Machine Company, a grocer’s, a boarding house, a diner and ice cream shop, and most notoriously, as a bar and hotel.

For the last 30 years, the Westminster, known to locals as The Pit, has played host to countless birthdays, Christmas dinners, happy hours, and wakes. We’re your first–and last–beer in Dawson. You can count on us to bring you the best in live music, be it local talent or bands from across the country.
Whether it’s a cheap room, a cheap beer, or stellar entertainment (and never a cover charge), the Westminster’s got it for you!


We can’t guarantee the quietest sleep in town, but it will be the most memorable!
