“Best place in town for drinks and a snack”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 4 January 2013

Best time to come is in the summer when you can enjoy the rooftop view and service, but the inside is very handsome with many beautiful paintings of nearby Velocity Basin. Handcrafted inhouse rum cocktails, a step above most drinks, even in major cities. Try a shot of straight rum and you will know why the drinks taste so good. The rum is exceptional. Pick your favorite flavor and you're set. I like the Thai boxer, basil and blueberries muddled in the rum, along with the White room martini, a delicious cream and crushed almond concoction. The pina colada is also a treat. Spinach and artichoke chip is very tasty and the meat and cheese platter is huge. I suggest getting it and taking some with you for later while hiking or cross country skiing. Goes great with red wine and is a real bargain. The smoked trout dip has too much cream cheese for the amount of trout but is still very tasty. #1 spot to go in Silverton. We love it!

“Great place to visit!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 26 December 2012 via mobile

We went in for drinks and an appetizer. We had cocktails which were fantastic and the smoked trout dip app which was delicious. Service was nice and friendly, don't forget to make it up to the roof top deck. Beautiful scenery and a great deck! A must go to place in Silverton.

“Great experience!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 19 August 2012

My husband and I stopped in here for rum tasting, and boy are we glad we did!! Unfortunately, we couldn't stay and indulge in more drinks because we had to drive back through the dangerous mountains to get to our hotel in Ouray, but we truly enjoyed what we did have while in Silverton. My husband is NOT a drinker, and he enjoyed the Oro rum so much that we left the tasting and went straight to the liquor store to buy not one, but TWO bottles for him and a bottle for a gift. Definitely stop in if you have the time! I hear the Maharaja is amazing!!!!
