Woody Creek Tavern

Woody Creek, Colorado

The Woody Creek Tavern’s most noted regular, the late gonzo journalist Hunter S. Thompson, once prowled the bar with a cattle prod in one hand and a Taser in the other. You can holster both and still get a good seat and a tasty beverage. Hearty burgers are made with local beef, and margaritas pair well with the homemade pork tamales and other Mexican specialties. The walls are plastered with thousands of photographs, many of them Polaroids that allow visitors to become part of the very fabric of the place.
