This is a wildly hopping location most evenings, particularly in summer. A place known for its interesting clientele, many of these patrons seem to spend their every waking moment in this bar, and the result is a warning against alcohol consumption. Nevertheless, this is a fun bar with plenty of young and old people. Many pop in, intrigued by the regulars and the general theme of the establishment. In 1995, Indigo Girls singer Amy Ray visited this joint and wrote "Cut It Out" after her visit here.
We were waiting to get on our bus to go on our very first alaskan cruise and decided to kill some time and have a beer. We came across Darwin's and were very impressed that the bartender was excellent and everyone was so friendly that we could not believe it. We are from Wisconsin and we have a lot of small towns around us and you can be sure that if someone walks in that is not from this area everyone knows it including the people that walked in. We felt so comfortable there and we have talked about going back to Anchorage just because we think that it is a very cool place to visit and if we do that we will definitely spend an afternoon at Darwin's. Also, the monthly letter that we get we love it. We read every word of it and the jokes are definitely something else. In the world that we all live in today, it is so nice to be able to say that we were in a bar in another state that people treated you like you had lived there for 20 years. There are a lot of states and cities that could learn a lot from Darwin's bar and the overall people that live in Anchorage, Alaska. The main strip of Anchorage was beautiful. Keep up the great work and PLEASE continue to send us the letter. We will always have a warm spot in our heart for the city and people of Anchorage.
Used to go here when I was pilot flying in from UK. Sadly our company stopped using Anchorage as a stopover about 20 years ago. I still remeber it as my favourite watering hole in town. I promise to visit next time I get to Anchorage. Can't wait!
I'm really not much of a bar person but I absolutely LOVE this place! They're very friendly and have a great sense of humor and some really fun old songs on the jukebox! I sat in here all afternoon one day eating free popcorn and had a few drinks. I met and talked to a whole bunch of neat people. There were free tacos in the back that day, they were very good! (note: I don't think that free tacos a 'regular' thing.) But-- beware! There was a plastic spider planted in one of the tacos! And.. if you got this spider in your taco they were going to make you do the dishes! And take a picture of you while you were doing the dishes!! LOL !!! Luckily I did Not get the plastic spider in my taco !! But it wouldn't have been so bad... One guy there did get the spider and he did wash one glass and they took a picture of him at the bar sink washing the glass and put it up on the wall. LOL LOL!! [hey-- I know this sounds silly I know but it was really pretty funny]
I plan to stop in here any time I visit Anchorage!

This is the best bar in town. If you are looking for a fun, laid back atmosphere where the bartenders know how to pour a great drink that does not put a huge dent in your pocket, then, young or old, Darwin's Theory is the place for you!
I used to go to Darwins Theory when I was stationed at Ft. Richardson. It has the most unique atmoshpere and free popcorn! Some of the most fun I had in AK. was at Darwins Theory in the summertime. It's good anytime though! I would love to go back.
I love this place.....All the bartenders know my name! The best bar little bar in Anchorage and maybe in the US. I've been thrown out twice....but really stepped over the line..Thank God they let me and my gang come back.
I have moved to CA now....and long for the good old days where I could chat, drink and smoke 'til twoish with my friends over Coronas and the like.
There's no place like home. The only con is that they never put a name on my barstool!
I love you Darwin's!!!!
