I have not been to the Little Bear since the mid 1970's, but what has been said recently was true then. It was loud, rowdy and fun; it was on the funky side with great music. I moved to California and kept getting kicked out of bars cuz I just wanted to party, Bear style! The Little Bear was the epitome of rowdy-mountain-town-bar-great-place-to-go-on-a-cold-winter-night! I gave up bars, but still remember the fun I had dancing and partying the night away at the Bear.

The Little Bear is a great place to take out of town quests for a bite to eat and drink. They offer intertainment in the evening. There is a cover charge so check out their website.
My husband and I enjoyed the Little Bear during the Evergreen Jazz Festiable last summer.

One wild crazy party story after another... Do not miss live music at the Little Bear - a Colorado tradition. You cannot consider yourself a local without at least one visit and one crazy drunk story at the Little Bear.

I visited the Little Bear for the first time on Valentine's night. The band was smokin' hot and the place was packed to the rafters with friendly people. It was a great contrast to the typical Seattle bar, where people are definitely more reserved. And yes, it's true - it's a great place to hook up, if that's what you're there for, but no one was obnoxious. I was there on a girls' night out, to listen to some great music and drink a few beers. The crowd was 50/50 guys/gals, every age from 21 to 60-something, and it was Standing Room Only. Yeah, the service is a bit cranky, and the menu is basic bar food, so don't go there for a dining experience. Go there to literally rub shoulders with a crowd of partiers who were very welcoming to this newcomer.

Pros: great bands, friendly crowd, cold beer, park on the street or in nearby lots

Cons: don't come here to eat, very crowded so don't expect people to respect your "space"

I've been going to this place since I was 3 years old back in 1958. I think it was the Red Fox Inn at the time. After Saturdays fishing at Evergreen Lake, I would belly up to the bar with my grandfather and an ice cold root beer, listening to him swap baseball and fish stories with his buddies.

This is my second favorite bar on the planet, but if you're looking for all of the creature comforts with great food, great drinks, perfect temperature and comfortable seating - this isn't it! This rustic mountain hideaway is everything you'd expect a backwoods bar to be. It is also a very intimate venue to watch and listen to some of the best B circuit bands around. Expect it to be crowded on popular nights and summertime Sundays, often with standing room only (arrive early), with a very little dance floor, restrooms and a kitchen that would likely fail any Good Housekeeping inspection, archaic wood seating - and expect to serve yourself most of the time. Most of the food is okay and the pizza is, at times, really good.

The personality of the crowd varies by the type of band, but you can expect to see folks from 21 to 60 on any given night. If you can put away your hoity toity big city attitude, throw on some old blue jeans, boots and a flannel shirt, cut loose with a few bottled beers and listen to some great musicians of various rock-blues genres - you're bound to have a great time. They also say if you can't get picked up at the Little Bear, you can't get picked up anywhere - if you're traveling single you might take protection. AND - Don't even think of driving down that canyon with a buzz. It's tricky enough when you're straight!

From the names carved on the wall, to the 'wall of bras' around the stage, you know you're in for a good time as soon as you enter the Little Bear. Always great music, fantastic off-the-diet-tonight food and lots of ... scenery. This place is always hopping!

THIS IS REALLY JUST A PLACE TO GO TO SO YOU CAN SAY YOU'VE BEEN THERE. MAYBE IT WAS THE PLACE TO BE "HISTORICALLY" BUT THAT'S WHERE IT BELONGS-JUST A PART OF HISTORY. SERVICE IS UNBELEIVABLY TERRIBLE-FOOD IS EVEN WORSE. DRINKS ARE WATERED DOWN SO IF YOU GO, STICK WITH BEER. THE STAFF IS EVEN UNFRIENDLY. YOU CAN CHOOSE TO WAIT IN LINE FOR 30 MINUTES TO GET A BEER OR SIT AT A BOOTH AND NOT GET SERVED AT ALL. DON'T GO IF YOU'RE LOOKING FOR A GOOD TIME!

Pros: GOOD MUSIC SOMETIMES

Cons: SERVICE, FOOD, ATMOSPHERE, DRINKS

We missed half the show we came to see because the bar had booked two back to back performances of artist David Wilcox. Waited 1 hour and 45 minutes to get food and couldn't hear a single song because there were no speakers near the line to get your order in. When we finally got our dinner we had 10 minutes to eat before being told by a rude staff member to "get out". Kitchen staff were equally unpleasant and unsanitary and gave us a burger that looked like it had been cooked for less than 15 seconds.

We would never go back.

Great time. A bar everyone should experience
for themselves. Can't wait to get back there.
