“Step back into the Old West”
If you're standing in the Diamond Belle Saloon, you just may have stepped back in time. Revered as one of the most famous original ragtime piano bars in the Wild West, the Belle plays host to the world's finest ragtime entertainers, while costumed dance hall girls & bartenders transport you back to the turn of the last century. The Diamond Belle Saloon sets the stage for a Western novel; a few noted personages have made the Strater Hotel their home away from home. For example, western author Louis L'Amour always asked for the room directly above the Diamond Belle Saloon, Room 222. He said the honky-tonk music helped 'set the mood' for his novels of the Old West. Indeed, a good part of his Sackett's novels were written at the Strater Hotel.
Dinner and a show.
I've been here twice now, passing through town on a road trip both times. Stopped in for drinks the first time and ended up getting dinner. After getting some live piano music and good food I left pretty happy. When I found out I was going to Durango again, I made sure we stayed in the hotel so we could get some drinks and eat here again.
This is connected to the Strater Hotel. The restaurant is small with a balcony area overlooking the main floor. We ate up in the balcony and could look down and see the coy boy singer below. The food was very good. This is a very popular place and we waited 30 minutes to get a table. However, we really enjoyed the atmosphere of old western and live music.
Cool looking. Guitar and singing guy.
Not so good food and service. Waited forever on our food and drinks. Burger raw, ordered MW, sent back, came back raw again.
Theatrical gunfights every Monday, Wednesday, and Friday at 7pm throughout the summer!
