    Decided to explore historic downtown Grass Valley. Thursday afternoons during the summer might not be optimal time for visits as they have an evening Farmers Market scheduled. Parking is a challenge a...  more »

    It is a good bar scene and a great place to experience the history of Grass Valley and the Gold Rush era. The food is hit-and-miss. Sometimes it is really good. Sometimes it is not.  more »

    My friend and I were doing a little pub crawl through GV this past Saturday, the Holbrooke was our third stop. We walked in and the place was packed. They had a live band and everyone was having a great time. The crowd ranged from old couples to young singles. We walked up to the bar and got served almost immediately. We hung out listened to music for a bit then went to hang out on the patio. All and all we had a great time there and I would recommend the place to anyone!

    Wonderful historic hotel in California's gold country. Themed rooms are comfortably decorated with antique furniture and plumbing fixtures. Lively evening activities and entertainment. Generous breakfast provided. Free parking in dedicated lot at back of hotel.

    Decent atmosphere. Decent staff. A bit odd clientele at times. Times with the right people make it a great place to be.

    When I'm in GV I like to stop at the Holbrooke. If locals hang out there, it must be the real deal. Reasonable drink prices and a happy hour menu only add to the value of visiting the historic hotel bar. Plus, I'm a filhly, dirty tobacco smoker, and you can not smoke anywhere on the streets in GV. You can out back at the. Holbrooke. They also have a side room next to the bar for live music. That's how I found the place. My friend did a gid there.
