Great place. Great sushi!! A little pricey but worth it for one time thing. Staff was a great help and friendly.

The food was good, must try the crack fries. With that being said the service was horrible. We sat down for a nice romantic dinner to a waiter with green hair and a personality of a 5 gallon bucket! When I asked for a refil...More

Love the sushi and funky vibe at Lobar. We are never disappointed with the food. It is in a basement, so the abundance of concrete makes it a little loud when it's busy. Or maybe I'm just getting old!! :) But this is always a...More

We've been to the Lobar many times - we love that place - the sushi is by far and away the best in Crested Butte if not Colorado. The fish is all flown in daily and tastes fresh and amazing. The drinks are great, the...More

LOBAR got started in 2004 under the guise of being Crested Butte’s only night club, but the ruse only lasted 8 days when we added Sushi to our menu and things really took off. We’re renowned for serving great sushi, and for throwing better parties.Our restaurant is inspired by creative Japanese cuisine, and pop art from the 50′s. You’ll find the video monitors around the restaurant projecting old Godzilla movies, snowboard videos, and an occasional kids cartoon. But its not visual entertainment only, as our sound system playing anything from Chicago Blues, to contemporary drum and bass, and you’re sure to find hip-hop on the weekends.This season be sure to stop by for our happy hour from 5pm – 6pm Mon – Fri. Our happy hour menu is full of excellent selections from our regular menu, and if you find a seat at the sushi bar the chef may throw in something even better.Were open 10 months a year. We like to close on Christmas Day, Thanksgiving Day, and the whole month of April, when the staff ( along with most of crested butte ) splits for a well deserved holiday.Stop by and check us out. – Kyleena
