about

…a gathering place for old friends and new

miners-saloon-bar-shot

Miners Saloon is a modern day saloon reminiscent of Golden’s mining days in the late 1800s.  With a rustic, cozy interior and a perfect balance of period details and modern comforts, Miners provides an old West saloon feel with a contemporary edge.

We have 24 taps (the most in downtown Golden) and more than 50 beers in bottles and cans.  Also featured is our signature Miners Margarita on tap, as well as a tap of cold brew coffee pushed by Nitro and our 44 North Huckleberry Vodka Lemonade.  We have an impressive selection of premium scotch, whiskey, gin, and vodka and our craft cocktail menu was created by outstanding barman Noah Heaney and we will add more deliciousness to this in the coming months.  We also have an ever evolving full wine list.

The food menu features shared platters, small plates, paninis, soups, salads and desserts, along with a few modern takes on 1800s saloon fare.  Created by Chef John Wilson, much of the menu is house made, including venison, boar, and bison sausage, dips, sauces, ice creams, pickles, and ricotta cheese.  The platters and small plates underscore Miners Saloon’s goal of being a gathering place for old friends and new.

A lighted Onyx bar and two fireplaces provide a warm and cozy environment for you to relax and enjoy good times with friends.  Our patio faces the foothills and will soon be outfitted with misters to keep you cool when it’s hot outside.  We have a full garage door, and a half garage door serves as a bar inside & out.  Both let in the fresh mountain air and make Miners Saloon a place to enjoy year-round.

We look forward to serving you!
