TripAdvisor Rating: 4.0
Address: 305 North Main Street, Breckenridge
Hours: Sun 10a-10p; Mon-Sat 11a-10p (bar open until 12a)
Located a short walk from the base of the BreckConnect Gondola, this is a great place to take a long lunch to recharge the batteries. You can carbo load on some pasta or go for a more traditional bistro fare with soups, salads, sandwiches, and burgers.
Would you rather get in an extra run while everyone else is eating? The Blue River Bistro is also a great place to catch happy hour after you’ve called it a day and then dinner once night rolls around. The menu changes at 4p and features traditional entrees like salmon, New York strip, and chicken marsala. The simple but modern décor lends itself more to the bistro lunch or brunch feel more than dinner and nightlife, but you’ll be too busy enjoying the great food to notice.
What They’re Known for: It’s hard to argue with a happy hour that features 2 for 1 martinis, especially when that happy hour runs from 3p-6p AND 9 to close. The first session is at the bar only so that people who want to eat have a shot at a table. There’s also live jazz and blues two nights a week, so check their schedule to hear some tunes.
What to Watch for: The bistro is very popular, so be sure to get reservations if you’re looking to eat dinner. If you’re looking for a quiet night, check in and make sure there isn’t live music that night.
