We have stopped by four times for a drink or two this week. The servers are all very friendly, poor great drinks and even keep filling your water glass! That water is important in this dry mountain air. They are known for their beer selection, manly whiskey pours and house margaritas. Great basic bar with the interesting locals who know... More

The mixed drinks were strong, the beers were $4-6 depending on which ones you got and the crowd was fun!

We were in town for a ski trip and went to this bar on a Saturday evening. They had a live DJ and the place filled up. It was not over-packed, but had enough people to make it fun. Seemed like a lot of locals.

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!

Great place to meet friends and enjoy the atmosphere. Known to locals as "THE BUCK" You don't visit Telluride, without going to The Buck.

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

Loved this local hangout. Went twice! Bartenders are friendly. Local and young crowd comes in around 10:00. Right on main street.

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.
