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.

“Good food, Great drinks and Awesome atmosphere!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 9 May 2014

I was in Durango for business and I stopped into Derailed for 1 drink and dinner...Well I ended up staying almost all night and listening to a awesome local duo who was playing on their stage. I could not believe how much I enjoyed the atmosphere of the place. There is a wood burning fireplace inside that adds a sense of comfort and relaxation with the smell of burning ceader. The staff was extreamly helpful and very nice. One thing that really surprised me was the bar tender took a quick walk around the bar asking each customer how their drinks were! I've been to a lot of tap rooms and Bars and I have never had the bartender ask me how my drink was! Of course I was there on a tuesday night and the place was not packed like I would expect it on a Friday or Saturday night, but still the fact that he took a portion of his time just to make sure everyone in the place was happy with what they got.The sound system they have is awesome! I am very picky about sound systems because the worst thing when listening to a live band is when the speakers crackel, but this is not the case at Derailed! Next time im in Durango I'll be stopping into Derailed Pour House every night I am there!

PS: be sure to stop in a check the nightly deals. The Tuesday night I was there Drafts were $2 for a pint, cant beat that deal anywhere!

“Awesome food!”

We were there on a Sunday evening, and it was pretty slow (5:00). Service was great of course, and the smoked pork tacos were out of this world good!
