“DISSAPOINTED!!”
1 of 5 bubbles Reviewed December 8, 2013

went to this bar last year, and enjoyed watching a guy called Steve Meyers,so even though the place is not very clean and the toilets are gross, thought we would try again.
They had the guy that used to belong in the Red Lion doing apres ski---and it was dreadful. and to top it all in his break they had that another guy who could not sing--a real dissapointment. found out from bar staff that Steve Meyers is playing round the corner at Underground Vail, but this was only after complaining about the evening.

“The best Live music at the best ski resort in Colorado!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed April 25, 2013

This is the spot to hear live music in Colorado! 7 days a week, 365 this place rocks! The Manager Scott keeps things jamming whether he's on stage or behind the sound board! It's a must if you're in Vail looking to get loose!

“Steve Meyer-best entertainer in Vail Valley”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed March 10, 2013

Go every Friday night to listen to Steve Meyer, who starts at 6.00--to 10.00 pm. This place used to be called The Club, and has been fully refurbished this season, and at last you feel like you are in a clean place. That cannot be said of the entertainer---clean and Steve do not go hand in hand--but if you want FUN FUN FUN with a great singer songwriter, who has some really funny, rude songs along with a variety of good quality music, who the locals love, then this is a place to be. You have to be over 21, and there is a $5.00 cover charge. You can now order food, which for food in baskets is OK. Arround $8.00 for sandwiches, nachos etc. Drinks are cheap, and Corona buckets are good value--plus they serve wine, and lots of different kinds of shots. I word about shots---Steve gets people to buy the bar a drink--so free shots come round at various times. The dancing space is good, but can get crowded some nights. Joe at the bar is a very friendly helpful guy and Eric on the door is a really good fellow. There is apre' ski which Steve used to do, but we prefer the times he now plays. Be warned--once you have been, to hear Steve, you will not want to go anywhere else. Steve plays Wednesday through Saturday. Enjoy !!
