Pam and Clint come into the saloon almost every night. I'd probably go out of business if they stopped coming. So make sure you don't drive them away!”
— Gus

Gus is a villager who lives and works at the saloon in Pelican Town. He owns the establishment.


During the saloon's opening hours Gus can be found manning the bar. While working he provides a variety of food and cooking recipes for sale.


Gus employs Emily part time to help at the saloon. Pam is also a frequent customer, and can often be seen chatting with Gus.


Main article: Friendship#Gifts

You can give Gus up to two gifts per week (plus one on his birthday), which will raise or lower his friendship with you. Gifts on his birthday (Summer 8) will have 8× effect and show this unique dialogue:

“A birthday gift? That's very kind of you! I love it.”

When he's behind the bar at the Saloon, you need to move behind the bar to give him gifts.


“You're giving this... to me? I'm speechless.”

Four Hearts

Four Hearts.png

Trigger: Enter the Saloon during open hours.

When you enter the bar, Gus will be sitting at one of the tables looking dejected. When you ask what's wrong, he'll tell you that the saloon is having hard times financially. He'll admit that at least one problem is that Pam isn't paying off her tab and he's afraid to confront her because they are friends. Pam will then enter and ask for a drink. Gus will be flustered and concede, but you will get the choice to either say:

• "You need to pay your tab right now!" -50 friendship points.
• "The saloon isn't doing well, financially" +15 friendship points. Pam will be somewhat upset but she will pay her tab off and Gus will give her the drink she asked for.
  • Your relationship with Pam will not be affected either way

NOTE: Only occurs if Pam is at 2 hearts as well.

Seven Hearts
