Affectionately known as "The Buck" by locals, this is a pretty typical saloon, with good beer and fun people. Another must do while making the Telluride circuit. People will usually start their night here, as well as end it here

Recently visited this Saloon. Accidentally left purse at the table, and didn't realize it until the next day. The fine bartenders here and honest locals kept it safe until the next day. This is why I loved Telluride and the Last Dollar Saloon!!

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.
