Stopped by after dinner for drinks. Pretty friendly people and staf. The GF said her Long Island Ice Tea tasted more like a Margarita.

The place was busy but we were able to play darts, easily get rounds of drinks, and while at first bartenders seem a bit standoffish - warmed up easily. Laid back bar crowd.

Stopped in for beers to relax around 4pm and left quickly since the background music kept getting louder (and not our style). Unable to talk. Otherwise looked like a great place.

Its a bar. Thats about all you can say about it! Now, there is nothing wrong with this place. The beers were reasonable, the bartender was fine, seemed like a place locals hang out. Atmosphere is all right, space to spread out, there are darts and foosball. Good place for a drink or two, for apres ski, or if you... More

My group stopped into Last Dollar while wandering Colorado Avenue to get the lay of the land. Although I can picky about dining venues, when it comes to bars (or saloons, in this case), I'm looking for a chill zone...and this place delivers. A great selection of beers, terrific spot for people watching, and you get the unshakeable feeling that... More

Good place to sit and have a drink. Make it a daily stop after shopping or a day of skiing. The margaritas were my go to drink.

There aren't many bars that have stood the test of time and the Last Dollar (The Buck) has done just that. The best location in town and a local favorite is definitely worth stopping by!

This place rocks. I had the margarita. Twice. $5 for happy hour. Super tasty. Please come here and skip smugglers. They only give you happy hour prices if YOU. SIT. AT. THE. BAR.

This is a great bar to hang with locals and visitors. Friendly and welcoming. Darts and pool are possible; however, watch the skills of the bartender as they deliver to a packed house in a virtuoso performance. Within a short slide and stumble of the free gondola, a $5 margarita sets the night off.

We are proud to continue the great traditions that have made the Last Dollar Saloon the favorite "cocktail time" destination for Telluride residents and visitors.All patrons must be 21+ and prepared to show valid ID.
