The Last Dollar Saloon, known affectionately for over three decades by Telluride locals as "The Buck" can be found at the southeast corner of Main Street (Colorado Avenue) and Pine Street.  This corner is the absolute geographic heart of Telluride's historic Victorian downtown - all roads in Telluride go north/south/east/west from here...

Now in its 35th year of consecutive operation, the Last Dollar Saloon continues as a fixture of the downtown Telluride social and nightlife scene.  Drawing on over fifty years of collective Telluride bar experience (Swede-Finn Hall, West End Tavern), your proprietors Michael Lee, Moussa Konare & Jay Raible with a capable stable of Telluride's most experienced bartenders continue the great traditions that have made the Last Dollar Saloon the favorite "cocktail time" destination for Telluride residents and visitors.

For many many years we have been making Telluride's best margaritas - recognized by a variety of local, regional & national publications - see our Reviews page.  Our House Margaritas feature 100% Blue Agave Sauza Tequila.  They are served strong, salt or no salt, in a pint glass.  Just $5.

We have Telluride's widest and coldest selection of domestic & international draught & bottled beer.  8 brand new draught beer lines were installed in 2012 and we are proud to be pouring everything from Pabst Blue Ribbon to Guinness to several of the Telluride Brewing Company finest beers.  We have an extensive $3 domestic bottle selection, and in all about 60 different beers (from all over Planet Earth) in the cooler at any one time.

Our well cocktails are pint size for your refreshment and only $5 as well.  We have an extensive premium spirit collection (focused primarily on vodkas, bourbons & tequilas) and several different white/red house wines.

We have the best jukebox in town - a new digital Internet machine that holds 300 albums and also allows users to download any song they want, We have several video games for your gaming pleasure and a classic old stone fireplace to keep you warm.  Two HD flatscreens show the sporting event of the day.  We have a free foosball table on the stage.

All patrons must be 21+ of age and prepared to present valid ID.

Thank you for your visit to our website. 


We hope to see you soon.

Jay, Michael & Moussa
