The River Bar - Gunnison

The River Bar is open daily from 4PM July through the 3rd week of August, and Friday and Saturday at 5PM through September.

Feel free to order a drink inside and enjoy the river when the River Bar is closed.

Relax in a peaceful riverside setting on the bank of the Gunnison River!

Friday Night LIVE with LIVE MUSIC!!

We serve a selection of sandwiches, appetizers and desserts at the River Bar and wine and beer, and there is usually a batch of Sangria. We can also serve a more extensive list of cocktails, glasses of wine and bottles of wine from our extensive wine list.



Anglers, rafters and boaters:

You may take out at Garlic Mike’s just past the STOP SIGN on the Gunnison river.
Enjoy a cocktail and put back in.
