The Saloon Before The Saloon After

The Minturn Saloon is the Vail valley's most historic restaurant. Located in the heart of the old railroad and mining town of Minturn, the Saloon's building dates back to 1901. During the last one hundred years it has been, at one time or another, home to various taverns, restaurants and even back room gambling for railroaders. While the last four decades have seen the development of Vail and Beaver Creek resorts just seven miles on either side of Minturn, the town's appearance and feel retains its historic Colorado roots. Minturn remains the true "hometown" of the Vail area. Click here to learn more about the history of the Saloon.

"The Unofficial End of the Minturn Mile"

Skiing Magazine has dubbed the Saloon "...the unofficial end of the Minturn Mile" for out of bounds Vail skiers. And because of this, on any given night in the middle of winter you might see innumerable skis and snowboards lining the outside of the Saloon. We are also proud to be named "the best après ski bar" in the state by Denver’s top magazine, "5280". Not familiar with the Minturn Mile?.. Click here.

The Saloon's Proud Owners

Owners Steve Campbell and Andy Kaufman have been in the restaurant business in the Vail area since the mid 1970's and have operated the Minturn Saloon proudly since 1986. When they bought the Minturn Saloon, along with Bobby Pelz and Doug Newhouse back in July of 1986, "behind the scenes" renovations were begun. The recipes and menu were enhanced, the memorabilia collection expanded, and the kitchen improved. The Minturn Saloon is now considered one of the landmark restaurants in the Vail/Beaver Creek area.
