What do you think of when you see or hear the word “saloon”? You’re possibly conjuring images of the classic bars that are prominently listed and portrayed in Old West tales. Soldiers, cattlemen, gamblers, and miners were frequent patrons to these places and these saloons arguably reached the zenith of their popularity towards the end of the 1800s.
Although saloons have dwindled in popularity since their 1800s heyday, if you search long enough, you can still find some semi-modern interpretations of these saloons strewn throughout the country, such as the rural areas of Colorado. One of the best is right here in Ouray! Seven of the state’s prominent saloons were highlighted last year by the influential website OutThere Colorado, and the Silver Eagle Saloon made the esteemed list. The saloon holds the record of being the oldest in Ouray, erected in 1977.
The Silver Eagle Saloon is named a “perfect hangout” by OutThere Colorado after you have been through an adventure like hiking in Ouray. It provides a lot of live music, pinball, darts, pool, and foosball sports, along with social experiences such as karaoke and open mic nights. It is situated at 617 Main Street and is open from 5 pm to 2 am every day. However, these hours may differ.
