Description: Long time locals, Todd, Lisa and Grant Gibson have been part of the Durango community for 22 years. As Bayfield residents, Todd spent many years as a volunteer firefighter, including fighting the Missionary Ridge fires. Lisa's passion for entertaining led to the family's purchase of Farquarhts in 2008. Starting as Derailed Saloon and then transitioning over the last 7 years into a warm & welcoming Speak Easy style venue, that has become the "The Pour House". Lisa and Todd have worked whole heartedly to maintain a clean, safe, friendly, fun and affordable atmosphere in a warm and welcoming environment, which creates not just a night out on the town but a true Durango experience. Lisa knows and states that "she is only as good as her people" which is evident by her appreciation of her staff and customers. She embraces all that it takes to have a place where anyone can go, alone or with a group, and feel that they belong. The Pour House caters to all your needs. Projection screens and a sound system make this spot an ideal location for fundraising and other professional events. Scratch-made food prepared daily using locally grown, seasonal ingredients, craft martinis and cocktails, 14 draft beers and an affordable wine list only adds to the versatility of this bar. A grand mahogany bar from 1890s Silverton, a wood burning fireplace, open-air windows, 6 large HD TVs and 3 big screens creates the perfect environment to enjoy our large variety of appetizers and shared plates. Local and traveling musicians and a dueling piano bar only add to the Speak Easy feel of this local bar & restaurant that you can call your own. Come on in to experience this one of a kind place in the heart of Durango. Don't miss our dueling piano events on select Friday & Saturday nights! Music starts at 8:30pm.

“Do not miss this place when you're in Durango!”
Reviewed 22 January 2013

Stopped in here when we were in town visiting friends around the holidays. Husband and I are originally from Chicago and can't find a good hot dog anywhere near Phoenix where we live now. My friends were right, the dog at Derailed did not disappoint! The staff was great too, and told me they fly in ingredients all the way from IL just to keep it authentic. My husband enjoyed the beers and I loved the flavored martinis. Like I said, definitely check this bar out!

“Very friendly staff!!”
Reviewed 13 January 2013

I would like to start by saying I'm not sure where the people who left negative reviews for this place actually went but there is No way it was derailed saloon. My wife and I walked in sat down at the bar and were met with warm smiles and good conversation from the staff. We shared some drinks ate a pizza (which was good not great) and overall had a really great night. My wife's family lives in the area So I will definitely return!

“Don't go there!”
Reviewed 21 October 2012

We just had a wonderful trip to Durango, and the only low point was dinner here. The food was not good, and the music (recorded) was so loud that it was physically painful. We couldn't wait to leave. Choose someplace else if you're in Durango.

“Atrocious and Rude Sums It Up”
Reviewed 25 September 2012

(I rated this place a 1 because it's not possible to rate it a 0)The service here was incredibly poor especially considering there were a total of three couples at three tables in the establishment at the time. First we waited and waited and waited for a server to acknowledge we were even there. Then we waited for tea and a soft drink then waited to place an order. After that we waited over 30 minutes for the food to arrive. Fortunately during our wait we were entertained by the folks at an adjacent table complaining about the lousy service and cold food. Then we observed a patron enter, sit down, order and receive his food in a manner of minutes while we sat and waited for a burger and a chicken sandwich. Turned out that customer was a local who knew the server so if you're a local and friends with the server, congratulations, you'll get priority service here. After that the food quality didn't matter a bit. Skip this place. There are many other very good eateries to choose from in Durango without wasting your time in this one.
