Bartender very friendly. Opens at noon. Too cold to ski. Great place to hang and try out drinks. Beer on tap, all were excellent. White Russian with different vodka, were fun. Want to have a Bachelorette party there for a friend

Django's is a very charming restaurant on the main street in town. The decor is very unique. Good service. Food is solid, though I will say not the best meal we had in Crested Butte, but definitely recommend

We stopped in to try the local brews, but discovered a bear has tipped over their barrels! 🐻 the bartenders were really friendly and we chatted with them about life in Crested Butte. The bar was decorated for Halloween and is a perfect size- enough to be intimate without being crowded. Indoor and outdoor seating available.

The place is a dive, low lighting, old worn out old furniture, lousy bands. The bartenders were friendly and the burgers & fries were great but they stop selling food early.

An upstairs venue and definitely good ski resort night venue that we visited for lunch during the summer season. Good pours on drinks and great attention from the very busy Katie = bartender. Good food and local decor makes for a fun and happening place. We will be back!!!
