From Xanterra Parks and Resorts we learn about the saloon in the Furnace Creek Ranch Resort:

Welcoming guests since 1933, the Furnace Creek Ranch offers accommodations in a casual, family-like setting, the perfect complement to the classic elegance of Furnace Creek Inn. Hear the clatter of horse-drawn wagons as they roll through the Ranch and bring you back to the Old West. Stop off at the Corkscrew Saloon for a cool drink and a game of pool. Ride a horse, take a hike or challenge your kids to a game of horseshoes. Visit the General Store for a quick snack and some great gifts. Check out the antique stagecoaches, mining tools and steam locomotive at the Borax Museum. As you wander around the western-themed grounds, you'll feel like you've been transported back to the 1800's when this site was established as a working ranch. Yet, you'll enjoy the amenities of modern civilization, like quiet, recently refurbished rooms, a Golf Pro Shop, a spring-fed swimming pool, tennis courts, a children's playground and the National Park Service Visitor's Center - which is just a stone's throw away.
