Lonigans Saloon

  • Events

In The Center Of Downtown Estes Park, The Original Hupp Hotel Was Built In 1906. Lonigans Is In The Former Lobby Of This Old World-Class Resort Hotel. Lonigans Opened As A Bar In 1982. On April 5th Of 1985, Two Best Buddies, One From CSU And One From CU, Decided That With A Few Modifications And Lots Of Energy, They Could Turn Lonigans Saloon Into A Great Bar, With Fun People, Great Food And Live Rock N' Roll.

The Room They Used For Live Music Wasn't The Best. But While Looking For Ways To Improve It, Bruce And Allen Discovered Something Great. Tearing Down The Drop Ceiling, They Found A Theater. In 1940, The Owners Of The Hotel Added On This Theater To Set Their Resort Apart From The Other Hotels Being Built In Estes. They Brought In The Best Shows From Broadway, Lock, Stock, And Set Designer. The Show Would Play Every Night From Memorial Day To Labor Day.

Bruce And Allen Replaced The Recessed Argon Lighting In The Ceiling With Neon (Much Safer!) And The Crushed Red, Dusty Velvet Curtains. Gold Leaf Paint From "Shangri-La" In 1940, Was Covered With Paint From Many Other Productions. Today This Wonderful Theater Hosts The Very Best In Live Entertainment Once Again! Blues-Rock-Jazz-Funk-, If It's Great Dancin' Music, It's "Live!' At Lonigans!
