The Eldo is a CB classic, with a terrific open 2nd floor patio overlooking all of the wonderfulness of CB Main Street! A don't miss if you re a pub kinda person and a CB fan.

We stopped in to try the local brews, but discovered a bear has tipped over their barrels! 🐻 the bartenders were really friendly and we chatted with them about life in Crested Butte. The bar was decorated for Halloween and is a perfect size- enough to be intimate without being crowded. Indoor and outdoor seating available.

The place is a dive, low lighting, old worn out old furniture, lousy bands. The bartenders were friendly and the burgers & fries were great but they stop selling food early.

An upstairs venue and definitely good ski resort night venue that we visited for lunch during the summer season. Good pours on drinks and great attention from the very busy Katie = bartender. Good food and local decor makes for a fun and happening place. We will be back!!!

We wanted a sunny patio for an afternoon drink, and we were not disappointed! I tried one of their local brewed beers on draft, and my wife had a well made margarita, and we had a second floor patio table overlooking town below. Oh, and we also had $0.50 cent wings!

We stopped by to have a quick drink while waiting for our dinner reservation. It's a nice place with outdoor seating overlooking the town of Crested Butte. The Solstice was a very good beer. The Gulsh (sp?) and another beer, were not the best. The homemade chips and salsa were very good. The customer service was friendly and prompt. They... More
