Breckenridge's Historic Gem, The Gold Pan Saloon, Wins 2023 Best of Breckenridge Award!

Nestled in the heart of Breckenridge, Colorado, The Gold Pan Saloon, a cherished tradition since 1879, has claimed the spotlight as a winner of the 2023 Best of Breckenridge Awards! As Carboy Winery's beloved sister restaurant and bar, this historic hotspot was voted 'Best Late Night' by Breckenridge and Summit County locals.

In one form or another, The Gold Pan Saloon has been an unwavering witness to the ebb and flow of Breckenridge's vibrant history for over 150 years. From legendary gunfights to fearless defiance during Prohibition, this iconic establishment proudly holds the longest continuous liquor license west of the Mississippi. Today, in harmonious connection with Carboy Winery, The Gold Pan Saloon shares its storied space, offering locals and visitors a new way to après-ski.

Situated in the heart of downtown Breckenridge on Main St, Carboy Winery invites guests to revel in an alpine wine-tasting experience complemented by The Gold Pan Saloon's seamless blend of live music, delicious cuisine, handcrafted libations, and narratives harkening back to the Colorado Gold Rush era. As night falls, the historic hotspot transforms into a neon-lit wonderland, setting the stage for late-night DJ sets that turn the evening into a dance-filled extravaganza.

Breckenridge is a haven for exceptional dining experiences, and the Best of Breckenridge Awards celebrates the culinary prowess of this picturesque ski town. The Gold Pan Saloon stands proud among the best, inviting you to be a part of this remarkable history. Swing by this ski season and raise a celebratory glass! After all, history tastes even better when shared.
