Though it’s slightly hidden from the main street and therefore generally the domain of locals or in-the-know visitors, Susie’s eschews any “us vs. them” attitude for a friendly, jovial vibe. The engaging waitstaff, who seem to actually enjoy their jobs, are the real stars of this simple bar. As the oldest saloon in Calistoga, it knows what works: good, well-priced drinks, occasional local live music, plenty of seating, and a few personal touches like the dollar bills pinned to the high ceilings.
