If you're looking to wet your whistle, just past Chet's is the Prospector Saloon. The bartender there, Trudy, knows everyone in town.Doc Mitchell

The Prospector Saloon is a saloon located in Goodsprings in 2281.


The saloon is owned by Trudy, who has a small office in the front. There is a pool table and jukebox to the right with a bar and seating area to the left with bathrooms in the back. Old advertisements for Vegas entertainers hang on the walls. The gentlemen's room appears to be used as a broom closet, with janitorial supplies cluttered inside. The door next to it is boarded. To enter that room, a very easy lock can be picked from the outside. Inside is a distillery probably used by Trudy and a few jugs of moonshine. Both Trudy's office and the distillery jut out of the saloon's general shape and are distinctly made of metal, so they are likely additions to the saloon's original construction. The word "Saloon" on the building sign is made of a motley assortment of neon letters.

Sunny Smiles begins the game here and initiates the tutorial quest Back in the Saddle when the Courier first arrives. Trudy and Joe Cobb arrive once the tutorial quest is complete or declined.

After the completion of the Ghost Town Gunfight quest, Ringo stays there until you travel to the Crimson Caravan Company near the Strip.

Notable lootEdit


  • A Goodsprings settler will often be sitting at the bar. For those of a mind to rob the place blind, he goes home to sleep for the night at 10 pm. Alternatively, he can be killed for a prospector outfit, cowboy hat, and a .357 Magnum revolver in half condition.
  • If you complete the quest Run Goodsprings Run, the items in the saloon will no longer be considered owned if you take them, except the .357 Magnum in the drinking glass behind the bar.
  • The moonshine in the rear room reachable only from the outside is part of Trudy's sales inventory, and disappears from her inventory if stolen. The presence of two fission batteries in this room is likely a reference to the recipe for moonshine later taught to the Courier by Cass. While Chet normally does not buy items stolen in Goodsprings, he will buy the moonshine.
  • Across from the desk with the terminal on it in Trudy's office is a crate which often, but not always, has 2 of the 3 magazines listed above. The third is always on a counter near the pool table.


Prospector Saloon appears only in Fallout: New Vegas.

Behind the scenesEdit

In real life, the name of the saloon is the Pioneer Saloon. A memorial with special section 'Fallout survivors' was unveiled on 19 October 2013, outside of the Pioneer Saloon in Goodsprings. It contains names of Fallout: New Vegas fans who came there and donated to it.
