Minturn Saloon lands on ‘Best Bars’ list

Daily staff report
Vail, CO Colorado

MINTURN, Colorado – The Minturn Saloon has been placed in Esquire Magazine’s compilation of the nation’s best bars and restaurants for the fifth year in a row. The list has only three restaurants from Colorado, and the Minturn Saloon is the only restaurant from the mountains.

“We are so pleased to be named once again.” said co-owner Steve Campbell, “It is a great honor and recognition of the great work being done by our staff.”

The Esquire editors seem to seek out historic and unique establishments. The Minturn Saloon has been in business for more than 35 years and is housed in a building dating back to 1901.

“This is just a classic old Western Saloon. Folks walk in, take a look around, and just seem to relax. Add in some great Mexican, American and game entrees along with the Margaritas and people seem to have a very memorable dining experience,” said co-owner Andy Kaufman. “During the winter the Minturn Saloon is the reward for taking the Minturn Mile and in the summer we can reward our guests with an evening on our riverside deck.”
