Victoria Tavern

Come have a mysteriously good time at Salida's Victoria Tavern

The Victoria Tavern, known locally as ‘The Vic’, was built in 1900 and originally billed as a European-style hotel featuring first class accommodations and steam heat.

Located in beautiful Historic Downtown Salida, the two-story corner entrance building has housed many businesses throughout her history. Before settling in as a tavern in 1910, she was a grocery store, meat market and billiards hall.

For nearly 30 years The Victoria has belonged to Peter Simonson. The Simonson Family, supported by an all-star team, continue to keep The Vic a beautiful historic presence and an asset to the local economy.

Long gone may be the days of 2-bit rooms and 10¢ quarts of beer, but a trace of The Vic’s victorian elegance remains, only to be trumped by her bawdy nights and stories she’ll never tell.

The Victoria Tavern is located at 143 North F Street in Historic Downtown Salida, Colorado * Phone 719.539.9003

I am in Charleston WV and have come in possession of an old brass “good for one free drink” token with the Victoria Tavern 147 North F St. Salida, COLO. on it. I was just curious about the token and maybe how long ago they were issued. Maybe I’ll come out there and get a free drink!

Hi Kevin,
I still give out those tokens. So yes, if you ever make it put this way stop in for a drink. There is a big rafting community here that travels with the water to WV. It does not surprise me that you found it.

Brass? I give out wooden ones.. I would love to see it. Our mailing address is 143 N. F street, Salida, CO. 81201. I will replace it with a shirt if you send it along with your size, and address.
