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

Sat outside overlooking Elk street. Bartender served excellent drinks. It was obvious why so many locals hang out there.

Awesome time at the ELDO for red lady ball. We dressed in red for HCCA. Band was awesome and we had room to dance. Bartenders were attentive.

Came with the wife and kids for lunch after a morning of mountain biking. Great craft beers and food. Watching Elk Ave traffic from the deck in the fall sun was the icing on the cake. Fantastic place!

My oldest daughter's favorite place in CB. Since we are in town checking on the progress of the house remodel, we decided to check it out. Want looking bar-pub with a nice menu. Great hamburger and fries. Wife had potato bacon soup with a Cesar salad which she rated 7 out of 10. Bartender service was prompt and friendly. We... More

All about atmosphere, right? What a cool little joint! Outside, upper deck to view the streets and mountain peak of CB! Not to mention, the bartenders have a superb taste in music, goes along great with a few Beers!
