ABOUT THE IRON HORSE SALOON
The Iron Horse Saloon is coming to town. That’s right, quite possibly the world’s most iconic and famous biker fun spot is setting up shop on the corner of Lazelle and Junction in the previous spot of Easyrider Saloon. Now the name is changing, the style and atmosphere will change to fit more into the Horse World System but what will stay the same are the people behind the establishment and the level of entertainment that people have come to love over their 5-year history. During that time, the spot on Junction and Lazelle has made some incredible headway in the type of facilitythey run. 3 incredible restaurants inside their building; a proper sit down dining location on the first floor, afast food joint with pizza and hamburgers on the 2nd floor, and all the way up top all you can eat prime rib and crab legs in their 3rd floor restaurant. They have some of the most notable names in music regularly grace their stages with Lynch Mob being the first announcement of this year and much more to follow. In their huge courtyard a giant pro audio stage sits as the center piece that can be viewed from anywhere you sit or stand. If there is any chance that you might not have the best seat in the house, two giant LED screens hang at both sides of the stage to give event goers a firsthand look at what’s happening right up front. There are porch type deck walkways all around the upper level and seating throughout. Day time activities have always played a huge role in what they do; this year will be no different as they already have The Cycle Source / Michael Lichter Ride, The Perewitz Paint Show on Wednesday and The Cycle Source Custom Bike Show on Thursday that will be awarding a complete rolling chassis to the Best of Show winner on the calendar. There are a few things in the works right now that I can tell you will be absolute game changers, but you will have to watch the web site for all the announcements.
Additionally, the signs that adorn the building will change to display the iconic name, Iron Horse Saloon, that began in Daytona over 30 years ago but more importantly they are going to do their best to bring the feel of that unmistakable property along with it. I am thrilled to have the honor of announcing the return of the original Broken Spoke. Many people don’t know that the real reason the original Spoke disappeared from this location was the result of a massive snow storm in 2014. The damage left to the building when the roof collapsed left it an unrealistic proposition to rebuild. The plans are to re-create a structure at the exact spot where the Spoke stood for so many years to honor the OG and give people a meeting point that will be just like the feel of its roots and heritage.
While we at Cycle Source have heavy hearts as we mourn the passing of the torch as it pertains to the Campground at County Line, our longtime home in SD, the news of the World Famous Iron Horse Saloon and original Broken Spoke location sets the tone for the beginning of a new decade, and one that we can’t wait to see flourish on Lazelle.
