The spacious beer garden, featuring a 60-tap bar, behind the saloon will be a venue for regular live entertainment.

Thursday afternoon, as bar staffers inventoried beer and liquor deliveries, workers outside pieced together pre-fabricated sections of a spacious wooden deck around the outdoor bar.

Four large oak trees shade the area, which will have seating, tables and a large stage for live performances.

Inside, corrugated metal walls, contemporary advertising signs and a textured bar create a clean, relaxed ambience. Indoor music is "customer choice" from the diverse selection on a jukebox that accepts credit cards.

"We didn't want to be a 'rock bar' or a 'country bar,'" Dawson said.

Berkey said he and Christiansen are aware of the shady reputation surrounding some Crestview bars.

"We're trying to change that whole scene," he said. "We're mostly a live music showcase."
