El Rancho Tavern has been my favorite bar in Durango!! There are some other places in town that are fun too but not like El Rancho. It does have the funny smell of old smoke/barf and spilled drink but that adds to the charm. El Rancho had a crisis in October 2006 and has had a renovation. You will meet people there from all over the country. This is where the locals go to party. It can get really, really crowded though. Show up on a Sunday morning to watch sporting events on the big screen while eating your breakfast from The Durango Diner. This is a one of a kind place in the heart of Durango!!
