Great whiskey selection including lots of Colorado makes. Good music, too. Much less crowded than the distillery nearby.

Michelle Baldwin

Incredible whiskey selection and a great list of craft beers on tap! It's really fun to hang out in the historic jail house! We grabbed food from nearby and had a beer with lunch. I want to come back for a whiskey slushy!

Welcome to the coolest new place in town! Hip bartenders, great music, and an awesome selection of whiskey and beer! You can’t beat the vibes, and the alcoholic slushies!! Perfect to pop in for a drink, or chill for the whole afternoon. We will definitely be back.

Awesome staff, great atmosphere in a historic building. Its really cool! The owner is chill. I highly recommend this place if you like wiskey,, or even if you don't. This is your place. They have local Colorado breweries on tap too.

My favorite spot in Buena Vista to have a drink! Great colorado beers on tap and an incredible selection of whiskey. The space is historic and rustic, yet clean and cozy. Always a good crowd at the Slammer.


The place was really cool! If you're a beer or whiskey drinker this is the place to go!

Great bar on Main street. Lots of craft beer and a huge whiskey selection. If you're in the area, stop in for a drink after a hike in the surrounding trails

The place for good drinks and good friends. Love the vibes and the selection of American whiskey and draft beer is amazing!

So happy I discovered this place. Visited a couple of times and the bartenders are always friendly and the beer selection is GREAT. Lot of local CO breweries represented.

Seriously the coldest bar I've ever been in! When I asked the bartender if they could turn up the heat, they said they didn't have any but the fire table was likely to open up soon. We finished our over priced whiskeys and left, seeking a warmer environment.

Cozy bar with a great atmosphere in the middle of BV. Super knowledgeable and friendly staff, and an excellent whiskey selection! Can’t wait to go back!


Great stop for a beer while walking around Buena Vista!!! We stopped in and just enjoyed a beer! Asked the bartender for dinner recommendations and he did not steer us wrong!!!! It is such a fun place, too!!!!

The ambiance is superb, as is the whiskey selection! The owners were super friendly and knowledgeable! I really love the whiskey bar concept and it's been really well executed! They had an excellent American whiskey that was really reminiscent of an Irish whiskey, which was fun and interesting. Overall, a great experience!

Lady Margaret

Cozy bar in the center of BV with a large selection of whiskeys, and a fair selection of brews. Used to be a jail so not many windows, but makes for a cozy spot in the colder months to enjoy some libations. They also have a patio area

AJ King
