740 Front


Menu Price: $35.00

One of Colorado's 10 most iconic, historic restaurants and a Must Eat.

740 Front is one of Colorado's two oldest bars, the oldest ongoing tavern license in the state, and to the community, a priceless treasure steeped in memory and local lore. 740 Front is the last remaining saloon of the original thirteen that lined the 3-block strip of Front Street. The 740 Front building was designated historic and landmarked in 2014 by the City of Louisville. As a result, the exterior has been renovated and restored back to it’s original 1904 design.

The awesome, room dominating back bar was built in the 1880’s by the Brunswick Company. Cherrywood, Birch, and Flame mahogany make up this "Del Monte" model which was cut-to-fit constructed, without nails.

The copper spit trough, once equipped with running water, still exists along the floor of the front bar and functioned as a stable, easy to hit, spittoon.

Rumor is that most of Louisville's saloons, relegated to Front St to keep “the sinners” off Main Street, were connected by tunnels to facilitate clandestine imbibing, gambling and womanizing.

Historically, Louisville was the only "wet town" in Boulder County until 1969. Notorious for its drinking, gambling, and illegal activities, evidence of the occasional misunderstanding is the .22 caliber bullet hole in the lower right corner of the front bar.

In the interior, original material and artifacts have been repurposed and incorporated into the tabletops, upper dinning room ceiling, hostess stand and where ever else deemed practical. The partition walls, ceilings, floors and fixtures all have a story.

740 Front offers Lunch, Dinner and Brunch on Weekends. The dinner menu features signature steaks, chops, fresh seafood, oysters & pasta along with burgers and salads.

           "Steaks not well done but done well"
