FAMILY OWNED & OPERATED
Horse Heaven Saloon features farm to table culinary creations from Chef Joe Lara paired with small batch hand crafted beer brewed by Anthony and Gary Vegar from Horse Heaven Hills Brewery. Delicious fresh and healthy American food served in a cool western atmosphere combined with a rotating sampling of local Prosser wines. Add fresh fruit hand crafted spirit libations by barman Sherman P. Clark and company. Horse Heaven Saloon offers the best of Prosser in a comfortable family friendly environment.
Saloon Front Doors are made from Brazilian Purple Heart wood used in the area hop kilns of old. On the front doors are replica old west Cavalry Single Action Revolvers that capture the classic feel of the Old West. Inside door handles are Remington rifle models 1974 and 1868.
We employed seven local Prosser artists to invent and create the Saloon murals.
Ken Carter’s back wall mural illustrates the wild Mustangs of the Horse Heavens charging over the hills towards east Prosser galloping away from an electrical storm. The horses belong to owner Carol and our friends – left to right “Destiny” (Carol’s Horse) “Hawk” (Nancy’s Horse) “Bandit” (Kenny’s Horse).
Clare Carter created the Horse Heaven Saloon in spot lights located midway through the Saloon. Clare assisted his father Ken painting the wild Mustangs in silhouette running with the hard charging Mustangs on the back wall.
Herb and Alyson Leonhard created the long mural that begins with the Horse Heaven Hills Wagon and Horse Team driving through Yakima Valley Hop fields. The mural continues with Alyson and Carol’s horses and farm cats. There is a whimsical wind blowing through the Horse Heavens and a 1912 Prosser street scene ending with the High Plains Drifter himself.
In the front of the Saloon, beloved artist and man for all seasons Wyatt Cone created and painted the Rattle Snake Hills. Look closely for the Rattle Snake wildlife within the paining.
Artist Mary Hanlon painted the Men’s and Lady’s rooms doors and murals depicting gamblers and Saloon girls. Mary painted the back bar columns on the Saloon bar.
Artist Marti Nelson created and painted the running Mustangs adorning the stair walls leading up to the Parlor Room. Look for Carol’s appaloosa “Destiny the Brewery Horse” depicted in three Saloon murals.
Contractor and artist Kenny Bierlink created the bar, back bar, and barrier wall. We used old growth Douglas Fir salvaged from another Prosser business building renovation. We employed a series of wagon wheels from an old steam engine combine that was used to cut dryland wheat in the Horse Heaven Hills.
