This place has the most delicious drinks in town! Their bartenders are great, and always have good recommendations for new drinks to try. Their small plates are good, too. This is our go-to place for drinks and appetizers before we go out to dinner.

Great for entertainment and snacks, but not for a meal. Everything here is great except the price for the price and quantity of meals. Staff was friendly, attentive, and you are not forgotten. Music was great, only problem was that the crowd noise overpowered it a lot of the time. Friendly customers, other patrons visited with others. Do not go... More

Ace Gillett's is tucked in the basement of the Armstrong Hotel and is nice quiet place to grab a drink and listen to some great music, like jazz. A must stop if you are looking for a small, intimate place to spend an evening.

My Wife and I visited Ace Gillett's on a recent visit to Ft. Collins. Two visits, once for drinks and snacks, and once again for a late drink. The atmosphere is that of stepping back in time to low lighting and jazz.. A long list of special martinis and cocktails. Service was superb. We had appetizers, Potato fries with asiago... More

We ate at Ace Gillett's twice on our recent visit to Ft Collins. It is a funky little restaurant beneath the Armstrong Hotel. The room is dark, but welcoming. The wait staff were attentive and friendly. The food was very good. I had The Caprese Catalan Flatbread - lots of basil pesto on chewy flatbread, with cherry tomatoes and mozzarella.... More

Had dinner here last night. The happy hour beer and wine were phenomenal! Dinner was fantastic, too! But the real highlight was our server Jo Beth. She was so friendly and attentive. Would highly recommend you eat here if you are in Fort Collins!

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!
