It is a bar so maybe not the best place for little ones but the people and waitstaff there are very friendly and helpful. Apparently this place has been used for many different things, a swimming...

Sitting outside drinking local draft beer and listening to live music is a pretty good combination. The beer comes in plastic cups and the food is good, not great, but the atmosphere is super fun. Sitting outside under the Colorado sun is a bonus. Just plain fun!!

Stopped by early Tuesday afternoon about 4, found a parking place on street and Golden has so many choices. Buffalo Rose had banner - happy hour 3-6, so we decided to see what it was, since it is a bar with a patio and live entertainment on weekends. Draft beer (we are in Golden home of Coors) was a Blue... More

Even though Golden can be full of tourists, this is where a lot of the locals hang out. Check their calendar for bands, but you may need to pay admission for some performances.

You can't miss the Buffalo Rose on the main street in Golden- just look for the bronze Buffalo up front . We went to enjoy the music of the Ullrgrass Fest, but realized this also has a hearty bar food menu which looked very good.

If you do the Lariot Loop, stopinGolden for a drink. Walk the historic downtown. Buffalo Rose has been many things over time. Now its real olf time saloon. Close to the Coors plant. Stop in for atour. Walk the river walk for a look at the historic village.

This is a saloon that has been open for over a hundred years and has a lot of great history. It is a cool place on Main Street. It is primarily a bar with good service. The food is OK but nothing great. Not recommended for kids.

My friend got kicked out for wearing a Trump hat. I didn't believe him, so I wore the hat in, and guess what? They wouldn't let me in. The owner is an avowed socialist who will not tolerate dissent , even though you have paid for a ticket to the show.

When you walk through the doors you immediately know that you are in a saloon. This is a real one. The beer was ice cold and the wings were very good. We love this kind of place, highly recommended.
