Much larger than it appears from the outside, Eck's Saloon has plenty of room for hearty drinkers, bikers, pool sharks and those who just want to stretch out and dance. Anyone with an affinity for '80s hair rock is pretty much guaranteed to fall in love with the place, as hard-rock cover bands are usually the rule on the weekends (during the week, it's karaoke, beer pong, trivia and poker). Eck's also occasionally brings in national acts from the '80s like Warrant, Kip Winger, Bret Michaels, Quiet Riot and Faster Pussycat. The walls near the decent-sized stage are lined with a good deal of hair-metal memorabilia. The place also rocks a massive smoking patio with a small bar outside.
