Remember those locals you met on the chairlift who told you which runs to ski today? They probably also told you about Poachers Pub: the place to be on the mountain to socialize with the locals from Telluride while enjoying your hot roast beef sandwich. The friendly staff makes the pub a great catch; most of the people working there are veterans of the restaurant and the mountain. In the winter, they have après-ski drink specials, and you can satisfy your late night munchies easily because their kitchen doesn't close until midnight. Mountain Village, Colorado | 970.728.9647
The friendly staff makes this place a local favorite.
