When thinking about a saloon, what comes to mind? You probably think of the classic bars prominently mentioned and featured in stories about the Old West. These places were known to be frequented by soldiers, cowboys, gamblers, and miners and reached the apex of their popularity in the late 1800s.
While saloons are not as common as they were in the past, they can still be found to this day if you look hard enough. In fact, several of them exist in the rural areas of Colorado, and one of the best is right here in Ouray! The popular website OutThere Colorado recently highlighted seven of the state’s notable saloons and the Silver Eagle Saloon was among the list. The bar has the distinction of being Ouray’s oldest, having been established way back in 1977.
OutThere Colorado calls the Silver Eagle Saloon a “perfect hangout” after you’ve gone on an experience like hiking in Ouray. It offers plenty of live music, games like pinball, darts, pool, and foosball, plus social experiences like karaoke and open mic nights. It is located at 617 Main Street and is open every day from 5 pm to 2 am.
