What a cool night spot. Definitely not your typical mountain town bar. The night we were there was "SIN Night". There were cool music videos on the huge plasma tvs, and go go dancers on a table in the middle of the room.
The room was absolutely beautiful. From the copper table and the granite bar tops, to the photo of the flat tops across the front of the bar and the artwork, this place was chic. We came back the next night and sat in front of the huge fire and drank wine and had tapas. The staff was super friendly and the drinks were very reasonably priced considering the surroundings and the location close to the base of the ski mountain.
Dress Code: There were people dressed up and dressed down. The first night the crowd was decidedly younger, but the second night was a really beautiful crowd.
The Ghost Ranch Saloon opened in the spring of 2009. If you are looking for a classy atmosphere with an old west feeling you definitely will enjoy this establishment, including the authentic turn of the century western bar. Live music is featured almost every night and often they will have more than one band. Their happy hour is between 4:30 - 6:00 featuring drink and food specials and also live music. Try texting GHOST and send to 25827 and get a FREE BEER!
This is place that you can bring the family or go out with your friends or date for a really enjoyable evening.
Here is their slogan: Good food and live music both served early and late
Dress Code: There is no dress code but most people are dressed casually, Colorado style or dressed up a bit from this.
This yearly music festival started in 1988 and has been showcasing top-notch musicians since then. The year-round festival is most popular during the summer months when concerts are outdoors. During the winter, concerts are held indoors. Although the festival focuses on classical music, there are also a handful of jazz, country, and other worldly music concerts.
I've spent many a summer night enjoying the melodies of top-notch musicians under the twinkling stars.
Dress Code: casual
If you like dive bars (and some of us seriously LOVE them), the Golden Cue is a place for you! It is a serious pool players bar. The pool tables are the best in Steamboat, and at 50 cents a game, they are a real bargain. Pool tournaments and league games fill the tables three or four nights a week, but if you want a challenging opponent, you will find one here. Good beer, so-so wine, a great jukebox, really friendly bartenders, and fun local residents provide an ambience unlike anyplace else in Steamboat.
Dress Code: Very, very casual.
Located right on the slopes (as the name indicates), this is a great place to have a cocktail (or two) after skiing. I hear they serve up a mean Irish Car Bomb (whiskey shot in a pint of Guninness). The burgers are good also. If it is nice, grab a chair on the patio outside.
This is really your basic ski bar. During the day, skiers may venture off the mountain for lunch or to suck down a few beers. At night, people show up to party. The Tugboat features live music on weekends and has all sorts of video and table games like foosball.
Hanging out at the condo was funnier than hanging out in town on the night of July 4. Most of the bars were closed. And, it's somewhat cheaper (as the pic shows we had our own supply) and safer not having to drive.
Dress Code: Wear what you want.
I know there are more bars downtown, but this was right across from our condo on the mountain. Every year we go there are good bands playing here.
Dress Code: Casual...jeans.
