Created Butte is one of the last bastions of what a true Colorado mountain town is all about. No mega resorts, local pride and for the last couple of years killer cocktails. The cocktail cabin has made a name for itself by bringing the art of mixology to the hills and its required stop every time I visit CB. The... More

Many mountain towns have fallen victim to mega resorts and have been overrun by hoards of tourists, but Created Butte has kept its local vibe and culture intact. The Cocktail Cabin is a nice addition to CB and its continued to evolve since I first visited only weeks after it opened. The artisan bartenders mix up creative drinks, while you... More

The poco loca was my favorite -- it was a tasty pineapple honey cocktail with an after spicy bite to it from the habanero vodka! A truly tasty treat -- it's not too spicy. The Bee sting is VERY SPICY, and not crazy flavorful. The Rose bud is a great refreshing bubbly champagne and rose water cocktail. The only reason... More

Stopped in to have a cocktail before Valentine's Day dinner and it was great. Warm atmosphere, friendly servers and an amazing cocktail selection. The building is off of the main street in Crested Butte, but easy to find. It is kind of a rustic speakeasy, minus any sort of password to get in. Cosy, dimly lit rooms offer many different... More

Stumbled on this little cocktail lounge while bike riding in downtown Crested Butte a while back. Decided to revisit this winter. Craft cocktails are excellent, and perfectly blended. Hip,cozy interior, overall great vibe. Many other places have opened trying to imitate, but the Dogwood is the original and by far the best cocktail lounge in CB!

This is a quaint renovated old house with a bar made of dogwood. It has a lot of intimate nooks and would be great date spot for an entire evening, They specialize in infusions and cocktails based on cuisine, like Thai (curry, lemongrass, etc.) and squash infused vodka/gin. My favorite was the one based on pickled beets which looked pretty... More

Imagine a cocktail bar in ski town without any of the attitude you would get in NYC. They make every cocktail you could imagine. It is right in middle of town. Be careful as these are strong and really good. A worthwhile visit. Something you will remember.

Cool, attractive interior with some neat design - owners worked hard on the remodel when they bought this old cabin. Mixed drinks are expensive $11+, but the creative combos taste so good. Herbs, like sage, paired with citrus and infused liquors, really good. I would like to try most of the drinks on the menu, but only want to afford... More

The cocktail menu is interesting and creative. Our cocktails were delicious! The food menu was extremely limited because it was off season, but we had a bowl of rosemary spiced nuts that were really yummy and a fun complement to tasty drinks. I will definitely go back next time I'm in CB!

This was a really great little find. Comfortable cosy place for a drink. Live music was very enjoyable the night we were there. Not too crowded.
