Since I normally travel by myself I tend to sit at the bar. The bar tenders at the Hanger have to be some of the nicest and most social I have ever met. This is also true about the locals in Juneau. A majority of the time when someone sits down next to you it is really easy to strike up a conversation with them. During the tourist season, the Hanger is packed with people that have just gotten of the cruise ships looking for a quick pint before running back to the boat or off to some site seeing event. I bring this up because if you are like me and want to sit at the bar, then do not worry bar seats will open up quickly. Another reason I am recommending the bar is because of the stunning view you get through the large glass windows of the harbor and the snow capped Mount Jumbo. From time to time during the tourist season you can also watch float planes land and take off in the harbor. A majority of them will dock right in front of the Hanger on the Wharf. If you cannot find a spot at the bar, your next best bet is the outside deck that is standing room only.
