The Llama, on Telluride’s main street, has quickly become one of the town’s best music venue and bar. After a refresh this past year, The Llama has a new look, new menu, SHUFFLE BOARD, and some of the best music options around. They have consistently been bringing awesome music to the area all season with local, national, and international acts. Some of the top names to perform at The Llama this winter have been John Brown’s Body, Lyrics Born, Charlie Hunter Trio, Toubab Krewe, The Itals, Mountain Standard Time, Joint Point, DJ Ana Sia, Dubskin, Thunder Body, Michael Menert, and EOTO among others. The sound system is better than you would think and the atmosphere is usually really fun! They even offer private couches and bottle service, a pretty funny addition to the Telluride nightlife scene.
For food and drink, The Llama offers an awesome selection for everyone. They have about a dozen different burgers, really good tacos, and one of my favorites, their signature “Dirty Chips.” These are house made potato chips covered with melted cheddar, bacon, and sour cream. Very tasty after a long day of skiing. You can even get some sushi rolls made at their neighboring sushi bar, Pescado. The Llama’s bar has a great selection of beers on tap from Tecate and Dale’s Pale to some Belgian selections like Delerium and Saison Dupont. These Belgian beers aren’t cheap but pack a punch and are delicious! They make some tasty cocktails as well, with their Margarita probably being their specialty. Definitely one of the better Margs in town for sure.
‘Happy Hour’ at The Llama is one of the best in town making them a great spot to ‘apres’. They offer some awesome specials from 3-6pm everyday, highlighted by their 2 for 1 Marg special for $6! They also offer 2 for 1 Well Cocktails, $2.50 Tacos, and their Great American Burger, Dirty Chips, Chili, or a California Roll all for $6 each. These are all delicious and give you a great bang for the buck, especially in Telluride.
The Llama is located at 100 West Colorado and are open everyday from 11:30am-2am.
