Great Little Place

I stopped in here and sat at the bar for a bite to eat. I'm not much of a cocktail person, but decided to try a few after reading the descriptions. I really enjoyed the Thai Boxer. I also had several of the small plates, and found them to be very tasty and a pretty good value. The atmosphere... read more

OMG so great! This place is a "tasting room" for the run they make. Whatever. Best. Drinks. Ever. And best appetizers ever. Faborite drinks? The caldera and maharaja. Oh and the spicey something was good too! Skip the manhattan, it's good. But the other drinks are boutique, unique, and must be had! For apps, devil on horseback, get a few... More

I don't really like liquor, but this place was still fun. They offered great advice on cocktails and their approach. A good place to start an evening.

This place is awesome. We stopped in just to check it out, got our free rum tastings, then had to try one, two, okay a few different rum cocktails. We didn't try any of the food, but the free popcorn was great. The bartender was great, but her mixing skills were amazing. Four of us tried a total of 6... More

Who knew that the little town of Crested Butte would have a great rum distillery with a terrific energy and ambiance? I don't like rum, but I was happy to offer the free tastings to my friends! And I enjoyed the wassail - in spite of not liking rum! Montanya's seems to have become a favorite of locals and tourists... More

My sister and I were visiting Crested Butte for a sisters getaway week for relaxation. While there getting a pedicure, we were recommended to stop at this lovely place for a glass of wine and some appetizers before going somewhere else for dinner. I absolutely loved the atmosphere, the food was yummy and the wine was very good also, As... More

We love Montanya. Great place for a late afternoon stop off, with creative tapas and original mind drinks. We don't drink cocktails a lot, but these folks have gotten me to expand my range. Wonderful place to sit, enjoy the fire and the lively crowd, and, in our experience, a superb wait staff.

Great music, great tapas, excellent drinks. Reasonable prices for craft cocktails and high quality food. Huge portions on the cheese and Greek plates. Can't wait to return!

We stopped into this Establishment after dinner for a drink. Although the specialty liquors sounded good, we were a little disappointed.

Went here based on other TA reviews and we were not disappointed! We had the bright and sunny and the strawberry jive, both were very tasty, but personally preferred the strawberry jive because of the fresh berries. The cocktail list is a few pages, making it hard to choose just one or two. Definitely order the jalapeño bacon poppers if... More
