Diamond Belle Saloon
Step Back in Time at the Diamond Belle Saloon
If you’re standing in the Diamond Belle Saloon you just may have stepped back in time. Revered as one of the most famous original ragtime piano bars in the Old West, the Belle plays host to the world’s finest ragtime entertainers, while costumed dance hall girls and bartenders transport you back to the turn of the last century. During summer you can watch the Old West come alive as cowboys, and sometimes the saloon ladies, battle it out in the streets in downtown Durango with good old fashion gunfights.
The Diamond Belle Saloon sets the stage for a Western novel; a few noted personages have made the Strater Hotel their home away from home. For example, western author Louis L’Amour always asked for the room directly above the Diamond Belle Saloon, Room 222. He said the honky-tonk music helped ‘set the mood’ for his novels of the Old West. Indeed, a good part of his Sackett’s novels were written at the Strater Hotel.
The Belle serves a wide variety of delicious lunch, happy hour, and dinner foods throughout the day. Enjoy handcrafted mixed drinks and a full wine menu. Come join the fun and sign-along with us, and remember to take advantage of The Belle Happy Hour from 4:00 p.m. to 6:00 p.m. daily.
