Located in Buena Vista, CO (Central Colorado Rocky Mtns), The Lariat is a 300 capacity Live Music venue with full restaurant seating, two patios, a 20+ item menu and 30 seat bar. (see photos)

We are a smaller town (5k population) nestled between a world class white-water and fly fishing river (the Arkansas River) and the largest concentration of 14k ft mountains in the country. If your recreation activities include hiking, fishing, rafting, mtn biking, horseback riding, off-road travel, skiing or just lounging in the sun surrounded by beauty, this is the community for you.

If you are a lover of Live Music and what you’ve read so far seems like a good fit – sit down. We are considered the premier intimate Live Music venue in the state. We host national touring acts year round and produce ticketed concerts every Friday and Saturday night in addition to hosting “Dinner Shows” during the week…we definitely know how to throw a party.

Buena Vista is a “tourist town” and we work hard so we can play hard in these mountains. Most of the action happens in the summer and we cool down a bit in the winter and reconnect with the locals. We’re a tight nit community and we value that. Your guests will become your friends here.

We are actively looking for qualified, music lovers to fill the following positions

KITCHEN MANAGER – Salary range $58,000 – $65,000
(This position comes with housing! A real house! Located just off-site, you’ll have the convenience of walking a few paces to work and still have your privacy when you need a break.)
