We've been here many times because we love the live music and the dark prohibition-era vibe, but it had been a while since our last visit. We really enjoyed the prosciutto wrapped dates and loved the mushroom flatbread that was on the specials menu, but...More

Located in the basement of the oldest active hotel in Fort Collins. It offers a 'speakeasy' atmosphere with music on most nights, a full bar and excellent menu. Dress up and take your spouse to dinner.

Ace Gilletts is one classy place! It is fnacy and dark and has amazing jazz music at night. Great spot for out of town guests
