The Last Dollar Saloon, known affectionately for over three decades by Telluride locals as "The Buck" can be found at the southeast corner of Main Street (Colorado Avenue) and Pine Street. This corner is the absolute geographic heart of Telluride's historic Victorian downtown - all roads in Telluride go north/south/east/west from here...Now in its 35th year of consecutive operation, the Last Dollar Saloon continues as a fixture of the downtown Telluride social and nightlife scene. Drawing on over fifty years of collective Telluride bar experience (Swede-Finn Hall, West End Tavern), your proprietors Michael Lee, Moussa Konare & Jay Raible with a capable stable of Telluride's most experienced bartenders continue the great traditions that have made the Last Dollar Saloon the favorite "cocktail time" destination for Telluride residents and visitors.All patrons must be 21+ and prepared to show valid ID.

Great fun!

This is a great place for a drink and to meet new people! We had a great night meeting other visitors to Telluride. It has a great atmosphere with a fire place and personal music choices!

Old Timey bar with that old timey feel patronized by old timey customers but unfortunately not old timey prices. That summarizes the Last Dollar Saloon. Years ago it was part of the pizza restaurant next door and had a great rooftop patio that had the best views in town but for some reason that went away. The Saloon now just... More

My favorite watering hole on the planet! You can't visit Telluride and miss this legendary bar!! Yes, I said bar. Nothing fluffy here. The bartenders are fantastic and the atmosphere speaks for itself.

This place is the epicenter of casual town life - an easy stop to meet friends or just pass a moment in time. No significant food served here though, just bar snacks. Can be packed solid at times, especially weekends.

This is exactly what you'd expect. A no frills western bar. Park your dog out front and go back in time. The "Buck" as locals call it is a landmark. Have fun.

Went here with a few guys after skiing. Was a nice atmosphere, typical bar scene. Good variety of beers. Nothing to eat, but they allowed us to bring our own snacks in. So stop at the grocery store on your way, enjoy with a few beers.
