This is the real deal when it comes to an old time saloon with a rag time piano. Great for just happy hour or for a light dinner menu. We were in Durango for three weeks and visited six times. Happy hour may be the best bargain in Durango

We watched a gun fight between two saloon girls while we were waiting and listened to a really wonderful piano player play saloon style songs. All the workers dress in period clothing and the whole hotel and saloon is like stepping back in time to the old west. I ordered fresh Rocky Mountain trout and it was the best trout... More

The food was great and the piano player, Terry Hartzell was outstanding. Terry played everything from ragtime to showtime to include all requests. The restaurant is a throwback to the 1880's. If you want a different experience this is the place to go.

We had lunch and had a flatbread pizza and a chicken pot pie they both were very good. The atmosphere was wonderful. It was like being back in time.

atmosphere of the old west is outstanding. The live old west piano music makes you think you were sitting in a saloon a hundred years ago.

Great venue and excellent hostesses.T he Diamond Belle is a very interesting place to stop for a meal. The décor and period dress of the staff adds to the experience. The food was good and not too expensive. We made the mistake of arriving at the change over period between lunch and the evening meal. Our meals took a little... More

The Diamond Belle Saloon is located in downtown Durango on Main St. Parking on the street is limited, but public parking is only a couple blocks away and it will give you a chance to stroll down main street enjoying the atmosphere while getting there. The Diamond Belle is in the Vintage Stater Hotel and completely decorated in the old... More

When we walked in and saw the waitresses dressed as saloon girls, I was questioning my decision to take the kids there. However, it is a great place. There was a piano player, which was a cool feature, although he only played a few minutes each hour. The food was really good and the atmosphere is really neat. The kids... More

This is one of our favorite stops. This last time we went, there was live music. The food is great, and we love the drinks! No one mixes like you guys do. We'll see you next time!
