A visit to The Broadmoor in Colorado Springs isn’t complete until we pull up a chair at The Hotel Bar. Choose from indoor seating on overstuffed leather couches or chairs. Or step outside near the lake for seating around the stone fireplace. The Hotel Bar is one of several Broadmoor casual dining experiences; casual but upscale and the friendly staff will make you feel right at ease.
The Hotel Bar offers the best seat in the house – a view of Cheyenne Lake. The entrance to The Hotel Bar is a tribute to the history at The Broadmoor.
Murals, photographs and original letters illustrate hotel founder Spencer Penrose and the Hundred Million Dollar Hotel Clubs’ 1920 visit to Colorado Springs.
Several TVs allow guests to watch their favorite sports channel, such as our latest visit when the Hotel Bar was filled with patrons enjoying the Super Bowl game. Locals tend to gather here too.
Located near the Lake Terrace Dining Room, the Hotel Bar is always our first stop, primarily because the staff always remembers us. A Broadmoor visit includes saying hello to our bartender friend Lynn at The Hotel Bar and catching up with her and her busy family.
Even when our visits are more than a year apart, Lynn remembers our names and what we drink.
Order microbrew beers on tap, wine by the glass and all libations – including martinis, a healthy pour including a portion iced in mini-silver “bucket.”
Peanuts and crackers are complimentary. The Hotel Bar also offers an appetizer menu, and our go-to-appetizers are the shrimp cocktail and sliders.
The Broadmoor dining experience is made better with a visit to the elegantly casual Hotel Bar, a perfect setting for an afternoon or a pre- or post-dinner drink.
