Dating from 1895, the Historic Bar is one of the oldest bars in the west and beloved by the locals. As Telluride's best bar, it is here that we locals hang out, meet and plan our backpack trip, our runs, and high country adventures.
Best Historic Bars of the West - we are original to 1895 and thriving
The bar has remained unchanged since 1895, boasting its original lead glass divider panels, mahogany wood paneling and filigree light fixtures. This piece of the town’s history is a tried and true "good time".
We are one of the best historic bars in the West and nearby there is another - the Dunton Hot Springs village bar, dating from from the 1880's.
Our bar has been renovated by our designer, Nina Campbell.
Jack Daniel's for $5
We always offer $5 Jack Daniel’s and have nightly specials in addition.
Pool and Foosball
We have plenty of space for both pool (2 tables) and Foosball.
Live Bands in Telluride for New Year's Eve
We are starting a set of live band night. The kick-off is New Year's Eve with "Niceness”.
They are a popular local reggae band with a lead female vocalist, Koral Delatierra. She can really belt it out! They will play from the balcony – around 9:30- 1:30AM. Tickets will be available through the front desk for $25
From the Niceness Facebook page:
- "Hailing from Telluride, Colorado, Niceness is a positively grounded roots reggae band blending a mix of soulful reggae, dancehall, latin, hip hop and funk. With a strong foundation of musicians, Tom Mann on bass, Michael Gomberg on drums, David Christeson on the keys, Dustin Wilson on guitar and Jonathan Barfield on percussion, the musical sense and rhythm is solid allowing for the vocal melodies of Koral Delatierra to sweep you away into the niceness that is abounding all around us.
"Our goal as a band is to spread positive vibrations with our music, sharing words of wisdom and gratitude to inspire and empower our fellow brothers and sisters to know thyself and to stand in truth and love."
