As a local gathering place, The Lariat supports the community with an emphasis on service and hospitality and live music, welcoming visitors as a vital part of the community. A modern kitchen and fresh, locally sourced foods combine to provide an authentic Central Colorado dining experience. Our genuine hospitality will make a stranger a friend and a friend a part of our family.

The Lariat offers a friendly entertainment and dining atmosphere for locals, visitors and performing musicians alike in a historic building with a 100-year-old bar and an authentic steampunk vibe that resonates with 1880s railroad history. A vital part of the Rocky Mountain culture, The Lariat has emerged as a key player in the Colorado music scene and has helped put Buena Vista on the map as a music destination, anchoring the music scene during and after the summer festival season.

All music fans appreciate the opportunity to experience world-class talent in an intimate venue, and the Lariat team creates that opportunity multiple times a week year-round. The Lariat consistently hosts top national and regional talent. Increasingly, bands headed to or from Colorado’s music mecca – Red Rocks Amphitheater – are stopping by Buena Vista to perform at The Lariat as word spreads about this musician-friendly venue.
