We were a party of 4 and went downtown. It was very busy, festive and one rooftop restaurant had music that wasn't too load. We visited gift shops and galleries. We had a wonderful time.

The reviews mirror our recent mid-afternoon stop for a late lunch/early dinner. We have been visiting Durango for nearly 40 years and this saloon remains one of the iconic watering holes in the four corners area.
