Doc Holliday’s Saloon, at 141 Avenue A, is decorated by colorful murals, on 9th Street, by local artist Antonio Garcia, known simply as Chico. Named after after the gambler, gunman and sometime dentist of the American Old West frontier, "Doc" John Henry Holliday. Holliday is best remembered for his associations with Wyatt Earp and the Gunfight at the O.K. Corral.

The neighorhood is filled with Chico’s renegade work which dates back to the early 80’s when he used to tag old redbird subway cars. He is often credited with transforming subway graffiti into a more accepted art form. His first mural — long gone — was a jab at then President Reagan: a tank driving toward the words "World War III." Then local businesses offered to pay him 0, then more, to paint walls near their stores creating an eclectic range of art.
