Description: Long time locals, Todd, Lisa and Grant Gibson have been part of the Durango community for 22 years. As Bayfield residents, Todd spent many years as a volunteer firefighter, including fighting the Missionary Ridge fires. Lisa's passion for entertaining led to the family's purchase of Farquarhts in 2008. Starting as Derailed Saloon and then transitioning over the last 7 years into a warm & welcoming Speak Easy style venue, that has become the "The Pour House". Lisa and Todd have worked whole heartedly to maintain a clean, safe, friendly, fun and affordable atmosphere in a warm and welcoming environment, which creates not just a night out on the town but a true Durango experience. Lisa knows and states that "she is only as good as her people" which is evident by her appreciation of her staff and customers. She embraces all that it takes to have a place where anyone can go, alone or with a group, and feel that they belong. The Pour House caters to all your needs. Projection screens and a sound system make this spot an ideal location for fundraising and other professional events. Scratch-made food prepared daily using locally grown, seasonal ingredients, craft martinis and cocktails, 14 draft beers and an affordable wine list only adds to the versatility of this bar. A grand mahogany bar from 1890s Silverton, a wood burning fireplace, open-air windows, 6 large HD TVs and 3 big screens creates the perfect environment to enjoy our large variety of appetizers and shared plates. Local and traveling musicians and a dueling piano bar only add to the Speak Easy feel of this local bar & restaurant that you can call your own. Come on in to experience this one of a kind place in the heart of Durango. Don't miss our dueling piano events on select Friday & Saturday nights! Music starts at 8:30pm.

“Great Jazz on Sunday evening!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed March 13, 2014

Great jazz jam on Sunday evenings! Starts around 6:00pm with local jazz musicians getting togather and playing great music! Good food and drink in a relaxed atmosphere with great service. Chris was our bartender and actually new what a lemon twist was! Just a great evening overall.

“Feels like family - good food,good drinks”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed March 3, 2014

My wife and I stopped in here for a drink and we felt so comfortable, it was like being in our favorite hometown pub. The people were so friendly that it felt like we knew each other for years. It's so nice to relax and enjoy good food and good company. Eventhough we were not from the area I felt at home and would recommend anyone traveling in this area to stop here for some good food, drink and atmosphere,

“Great atomosphere on a Friday or Saturday night out”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed February 27, 2014 via mobile

Entered into a well maintained bar with great lighting and a great stage. The servers and bartenders were very cheerful and served us as well as possible. Went on a weekday and received even better service since they weren't as busy. Recommend everyone to try it out!

“Local favorite for drinks, music, good service and great atmosphere.”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed February 5, 2014

I have lived in Durango all my life and this is the place I choose to take guests and friends. We love this place and you can always find us here Friday nights. Snowdown 2014 was spent here and we returned Sunday for the Superbowl. Thanks for all the great service, the great bands and all the fun memories.
