Historic New Sheridan Bar
The Historic New Sheridan Bar located on Main St. downtown is the quintessential remade cowboy bar. A must do when out on the town.
There is a tiny off the beaten path establishment with incredible specialty cocktails, delicious ingredient focused food designed to be shared and fun and high energy service. Quickly becoming a local's favorite.
Fly Me to the Moon Saloon
"The Moon" as the locals call it is one of the few consistent late night music venues in town. New ownership has an active music lineup and serve local mircobrews from Telluride Brewing Company. A dive bar in it truest meaning, this is the place for you if you are looking for live music or still seeking out a good time late into the night.
Located in the Sunset Plaza in Mountain Village Poachers is a popular watering hole for apres ski locals looking for happy hour specials and heaping portions of fried food. Later into the evening this is one of your best bets to have a drink or get a bite to eat in the Village.
Last Dollar Saloon
Occasional live music and a Main St. corner location make this a popular late night hangout. A large selection of beers, full bar, and no frills attitude keep "the buck" hoping late on weekend nights.
