Dine like Buffalo Bill

Established in 1893, the two-story Buckhorn Exchange is original Denver’s original steakhouse and the very first tavern in Colorado. Not much has changed over the last 120 years: Prime beef steaks are still the signature dish, though the Buckhorn also offers buffalo and other game, all served in a dining room filled with more than 500 pieces of taxidermy. The upstairs bar is the best place to nurse a glass of whiskey during performances by singing cowboys.
