Is absolutely amazing in every way! The atmosphere is intimately romantic but still welcoming for anyone or occasion. Live jazz music is relaxing and well performed with piano & guitar and occasionally the saxophone. The service is astounding and fun! The food I can not even begin to describe adequately. Will definitely be a frequent place to eat at or... More

Always great music with tasty drinks. This place is a nice switch from the plethora of breweries we have here in FoCo. Bring your lady friend!

My family went to Ace Gilletts for a quick drink and to listen to the live Jazz. Ray (the bartender) went above and beyond for us and was so friendly even though the bar was packed! I work in the hospitality industry and know what great customer service looks like and Ray is a fantastic example of it!

This place has one of the best vibes in the area. It is like being in a big city jazz bar or speak easy. I took my wife here for a child-less date and it was perfect. We got an intimate table in the corner and had great food and drinks while listening to a cool jazz band. If you... More

Ace Gillett's is really one of the coolest places in town. Whether you go on a night with jazz or without it, the atmosphere is amazing, and the staff is always friendly, helpful, and unobtrusive. The drinks are absolutely fantastic, and all the food I've sampled (over several visits) has been surprisingly superb. (I say 'surprisingly' because with such a... More

Went to Ace Gillett's to listen to its regular jazz combo in old town. It was a very nice experience. The music was relatively easy listening and the surroundings promoted a shared intimacy without intrusion from neighboring couples (somewhat rare in a non-booth setting). Wines and alcoholic drinks were reasonably priced and tasty.The gnocchi was fairly tasty. Biggest criticism was... More

This place is hard to find unless you know where you are going. It's located inside the Armstrong Hotel in downtown Ft. Collins. It's one of the coolest bars I've been to in a long time. They seem to have a bit of a dress code, so no t-shirts and no sandals/flip flops, just so you know.
