We were in town for a ski trip and went to this bar on a Saturday evening. They had a live DJ and the place filled up. It was not over-packed, but had enough people to make it fun. Seemed like a lot of locals.

This is a great place for a drink and to meet new people! We had a great night meeting other visitors to Telluride. It has a great atmosphere with a fire place and personal music choices!

Great place to meet friends and enjoy the atmosphere. Known to locals as "THE BUCK" You don't visit Telluride, without going to The Buck.

Good dive bar - no pretense or posh stuff here. Good selection of beers on tap and in bottles. they don't serve food.

Old Timey bar with that old timey feel patronized by old timey customers but unfortunately not old timey prices. That summarizes the Last Dollar Saloon.
Years ago it was part of the pizza restaurant next door and had a great rooftop patio that had the best views in town but for some reason that went away. The Saloon now just serves as a bar, no food. Lots of interesting characters hang out here but the long time bartender (Dale?) with the long grey pony tail, alas, is no more. Still a good place to hang and watch the human parade pass by your window seat. You might even spot one of those elusive Telluride celebrities that announce to the world they've moved there and then spend all their time hiding behind disguises. But I doubt it.
