Friday night means locals only, at least that was the impression we were left with.The music was loud and the bouncer seemed bored: end of story.

This is the locals bar on main street. If folks tell you to meet them at "the buck" this is where to go. Affordable drinks and live music. Also latin night dance parties. Once the renovation is done the bathrooms will be nicer too! yay!...More

Pretty good beer selection though a whole section of the cooler was not cold. The server had zero personality. Zero. No conversation, do you want another, etc... They could step it up and make it a great place.

Went here with a group of friends while waiting to be seated at Brown Dog Pizza. Staff was friendly, draft beer and drink options were great, and the place had a good vibe. Love the back bar and the layout of the space.

This is a cute local bar with so much potential, BUT the bartender is just so nasty you have to avoid. He must not like to serve people. Some good beers on tap, but drinks are pricey and not prepared well. Plenty of other options...More

Lots of beer on tap and good selection. They have wine and drinks. The bartenders are super cool and it's a nice vibe. Not very big, so get there early and sit at the bar.

The Last dollar is a great bar. It is not a great dive bar, like many reviews and people would say it is. It's more cowboy-ish. Don't get me wrong, it's a great place to get a drink and wait for your table at Brown...More

The blackboard sign out front announcing happy hour 2-5 pm made me stop in my tracks as I was more than willing to be happy before 5pm. This bar has been around quite awhile and the bartender thought the building may have been a brothel...More

Hello from the Last Dollar - a couple small clarifications...the bar was opened in 1899 as the National Club Saloon, one of the preeminent gambling saloons in town at the time. It's been the Last Dollar Saloon for the past 39 years. We are not...More

The Last Dollar Saloon, known affectionately for over three decades by Telluride locals as "The Buck" can be found at the southeast corner of Main Street (Colorado Avenue) and Pine Street. This corner is the absolute geographic heart of Telluride's historic Victorian downtown - all roads in Telluride go north/south/east/west from here...Now in its 38th year of consecutive operation, the Last Dollar Saloon continues as a fixture of the downtown Telluride social and nightlife scene. We are proud to continue the great traditions that have made the Last Dollar Saloon the favorite "cocktail time" destination for Telluride residents and visitors.All patrons must be 21+ and prepared to show valid ID.
