The Pink Pony opened on Mackinac Island 69 years ago and has turned into one of Mackinac’s favorite and talked about destinations for thousands of people. Last year, we were honored that the Pink Pony was named Most Iconic Bar in Michigan by Thrillist , so I guess you could say, we were thrilled! The iconic Pink Pony logo has become a symbolic, recognized brand over the years and has also transitioned over time with a few different looks while still proudly representing the Pink Pony. While some things change, some things stay the same. The Pink Pony logo continues to represent the proud legacy of 69 iconic years and now we’ve redesigned it to honor the long-standing tradition of the original Pink Pony. We love the new Pink Pony logo and all of our guests love it too!
The next time you visit your home away from home, big things will be in store for you! And we mean that in the truest sense of the word as we proudly announce the Grand Opening of our new Pink Pony Store! It’s located to the left of our Chippewa Hotel. You can enter the store from Main Street or you can come in from the Chippewa’s newly renovated lobby which creates a spacious open flow so you can go and come as you please from two areas. The renovations to build the new store started this Winter and that included major renovations to the lobby at the Chippewa Hotel that also included an entry to the new Pink Pony store.
“For years, our guests have asked for a bigger selection of Pink Pony merchandise and we’re excited to make that happen with the opening of our new Pink Pony store. Plus, with the great feedback we’re getting on our new Pink Pony logo, we know it’s going to be a huge success!” -Brian Bailey / General Manager.
