When you set foot into the Woody Creek Tavern for the first time it could be tough to tell if you’ve stepped back, forward—or perhaps sideways—in time. Your nose will absorb spice; is it Latin? Is it Argentine? Your stomach’s going to growl even as your eyeballs pixelate and fixate on over 40 years of accumulated memorabilia forming a multilayered collage that comprises the decor. Polaroids paper the walls; a pressed-tin ceiling ricochets warm laughter and conversation around the space. When it opened in 1980 the Tavern instantly became a locals’ joint—a watering hole for the residents of Woody Creek. A few miles to the east, Aspen is diving into the future, while the Tavern is content to be down-home and casually comfortable. Join us for great food, a stiff drink and some of the most colorful characters you’ll ever meet!
