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 Dog. Just have your expectations right.

The bar tenders at the Last Dollar were all extremely friendly and pleasant, unlike most ski town bar tenders. This was extremely refreshing and made you feel welcome. Will come back!

If you like to self serve ,this bar is for you! You have to go to the bar for any kind of service. Even tho they have tables,no one will come out to take orders.One person for the whole bar. So if your a drinker at the bar ,it's okay

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 at one time.
No food is offered so I had a couple of beers I liked for lunch instead. Just locals hanging at the bar at that time. It's also cash only. Thought it was an interesting stop as I like these kind of places.

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 cash only, credit cards are welcome. Thanks for coming!

Very friendly place. Appears to be where the locals go. Has both name brand and local brewery beers at very reasonable prices.
