OUR STORY
HOW IT ALL BEGAN

The Oasis Bar is a local staple in Orofino Idaho.

Navy Veteran and retired crane operator Jeff Matney grew up in Orofino Idaho.

After high school Jeff joined the Navy and traveled the world before returning his home base to Orofino while working seasonally as a crane operator in Alaska. After retiring in March of 2020, he purchased The Oasis Bar.

Jeff and his girlfriend, Kristee Rae, then took on their labor of love, completely remodeling the inside of the bar with a bit of Orofino history.  All the cedar and tin inside was recycled from Konkolville mill and now proudly hangs on the walls of the bar, giving it a hometown friendly and comfortable atmosphere.  The original bar, still in place, is a definite conversation piece with several local names (old and new) carved into it.  We offer a variety of domestic or premium beers and many different liquors that the awesome staff of bartender’s will be happy to mix, stir, shake, pour and serve you!
