|Heinhold’s First and Last Chance Saloon, in Oakland, California, was a hangout for which famous writer?|
Jack London. Located on the Oakland waterfront, the bar was built in 1880 from the timbers of an old whaling ship. Sailors used to make this the last stop before going out to sea, and the first upon their return, hence the bar’s name. London used many of the stories he heard here in his books. For example, the saloon is mentioned 17 times in London’s novel “John Barleycorn”.
