by Annie The Colorado Restaurant With Old West Roots That Date Back To The 1880s
Did you know that – aside from museums – the Old West is still alive and well in the Centennial State? Not only do we have many of our original 19th Century buildings and former mines but also restaurants that have been open since their inception, like this equally historical and delicious Colorado restaurant with Old West roots:
Welcome to the Silver Dollar Saloon!
Located in Leadville, the Silver Dollar Saloon was established in 1883 and has been open ever since, hosting the likes of such gunslinging Old West legends as Doc Holliday, plus more dignified guests like "The Unsinkable" Molly Brown and Oscar Wilde.
When you visit today, you will find many of the Saloon's original features, including the wooden floors, bar, mirror behind the bar, and windbreak by the front door.
While they may not be original, many photos and artifacts also pay homage to the Silver Dollar Saloon's history.
Though the history is reason enough to visit, the Silver Dollar Saloon also boasts a delicious and innovative menu that includes wings, sandwiches, and made-from-scratch starters and sides.
What is a saloon without an extensive drink menu? The Silver Dollar Saloon has that, too!

The Silver Dollar Saloon is open every day from 12 p.m. to 1 a.m.
