Stumbled upon the Arroyo on our recent trip to Telluride and the experience could not have been better. Great wine, great atmosphere, and an even better staff. Sara and ? could not have been more accommodating and insightful. They genuinely made us feel like long lost friends. Keep it up. Already looking forward to visiting next year.

Sean Murphy runs Telluride's only real wine bar on Main Street. It is stocked with the best selection of wines by the glass. With a cordial living room atmosphere it should not missed!

I discovered the Arroyo Art & Wine Bar through Tasting Telluride (another must! – thank you Lois and Howie!!) It is now a standard stop on our tour. We love art, we love wine…. and as season ticket holders of the GAM in Salt Lake City, the Jazz is a slam-dunk (no pun intended). Sean was our host, and Amy... More

We went in the afternoon and it was wonderful. The server there made it even better because of his welcoming demeanor. I would love to go back in the evening, as I am sure it to be more romantic, but it was great for an afternoon stop as well!

Went there twice for drinks. We went back simply for the excellent petit Syrah that they had and the engaging bar staff who made you feel like one of the locals. Great selection of wines and at a great price. Highly recommend!

This art gallery/wine bar felt more like Manhattan than Colorado. Good selection of wines and the owner, Sean, is charming. Great for a relaxing evening.

We enjoyed our light dinner here. The food menu is limited, but our skewers and empanadas tasted really good. The wine list is extensive. The server tried really hard, but she was swamped. You need to be patient. The wine bar is right on the main street. We love small plates so we were pleased to find Arroyo.

We liked this place, and if you are from the city and on vacation in Telluride, you will, too! It is an art gallery and a wine bar with little tables in addition to the bar. On the weekend we were there, they had a caterer cooking tapas and they were delicious. Each table had a unique plant on it,... More
