Re: Salon or Saloon ?

It's Saloon. A salon is where you get your hair done.

Exactly, a lot more drinking goes on in there than perms and dye jobs.

Re: Salon or Saloon ?

I've been on a few boats around sunset where the whole damn boat is a saloon.

Re: Salon or Saloon ?

I just did a post on this yesterday. Didn't even know this was here.
The yacht saloon, or is it salon? – Yacht photography - Sailing photography

It's nice to see most use saloon!

But a Saloon has swinging doors.

Actually, I just call it "downstairs."

Re: Salon or Saloon ?

Reminds me of when I e-mailed a list of things that would be needed to a mate who was looking to buy a first boat........

....I did a typo on the word Warps - for years afterwards he kept calling 'em "Wraps" .

I suspect Salon and Saloon much the same.

Re: Salon or Saloon ?

In the Salon you are having Tea.
In the Saloon you are having a beer or two.

Re: Salon or Saloon ?

It's my understanding that it's spelled 'saloon' but pronounced 'salon'. Don't know why though.

It depends which way you swing.
