El Moro is one of our favorite spots in Durango. We stop for a cocktail and appetizers or dinner whenever we are in town. They have a unique cocktail menu, delicious food, casual atmosphere, and a fun vibe.

Loved the light fixtures and the food was outstanding as well! A local recommended the hamburgers...juicy, very tasty! And the fries...i would return just for the fries. The wait staff also excelled. A very enjoyable experience! Will most definitely return on next Durango visit.

El Moro Spirits & Tavern was created in the building that once housed the El Moro Saloon in the early 1900's. The food is modern-rustic: common foods from the early 20th century created with modern culinary techniques. Handcrafted cocktails, an extensive beer list and forty wines, all approachable & affordable, grace our beverage menu.
