Please note that this establishment is currently closed with no forecast of reopening. Desperately needs new owners who understand the opportunity in this small outdoor sport-oriented town near Breckenridge.

The Hotel and Bar are under new management. The Hotel is approximately 70% complete and the bar is about 50% complete. As.with any historical structures there have been many challenges renovating this property. The Miner's Club will be the highest music venue in North America.

Working a ranch nearby, this was the place to go for a beer and a burger. Kitchen is open fairly late, beer is cold, people are friendly. A band plays there sometimes. Overall nothing fancy. What's cool about it is that it simply is what it is - excellent - without trying to be. I miss this place.

This is a nice place to stop and get a drink on your way to where ever you are going. It does have very good pizza and it is in one of the highest towns around.

There is another bar in Alma, though it appears to be about 36" lower in elevation, so this remains America's highest bar!

Our guide at the Safari Ranch recommended this place. Good sandwiches in a quaint little saloon. Enjoyed a very nice lunch with a great bartender/waiter. Had a "Friends"-like atmosphere...would have stayed longer...but we had to drive back to Breck.

Alma's Only Bar and Restuarant is located in the historic South Park Colorado at 10,578 feet above sea level. Home cooked food is served 7 days a week until 10 pm. The bar is open daily until 2 am. Every Friday night there is live music and no cover with bands from all over the USA. A 10 bedroom hotel is located right next door. We are located on Main street in the heart of Alma in the middle of a 14,000 peak mountain range. Beautiful in the summer and winter!
