Bob’s Place has an interesting history, starting as a West Vail restaurant, moving to Avon in 1992 and finding its current home in 2000. Along the way, sports fans started to notice it was pretty much the best place to catch a game in the valley. It went on to become a test location for high-elevation plasma screen TVs, helping the industry learn the nuances of how altitude affects quality in the finicky displays. These days, they’ve got it all figured out, and after a few beers with the friendly bartenders, you will, too.
