@ The Rock Inn Mountain Tavern
Jun 1 @ 6:00 pm
An accomplished instrumentalist (mandolin, guitar, bass), vocalist and songwriter, K.C. Groves has been at the heart of many celebrated projects. As the creative center and bandleader of Uncle Earl for over a decade, K.C. helped bring old time music to a wider audience. The “g’Earls” played major festival stages in the United States and toured extensively abroad, gaining fans and musical cohorts such as Led Zeppelin’s John Paul Jones, who produced their 2007 album Waterloo, Tennessee. In addition to Uncle Earl, K.C. has released two solo albums of original material, and was a Telluride Troubadour contest finalist and a Detroit Music Award winner. She has teamed up with countless notable musicians, including old time musician and craftsman Riley Baugus and Leftover Salmon’s Vince Herman.
Jun 2 @ 7:00 pm
Andrew Wynne explores the acoustic folk-rock frontier with his Martin guitar and dynamic, soul-soaked vocals on countless classic covers. And then he brings it all back home to his inspired original songs with their intricate rhythms and visionary lyrics.
Open 7 days a week at 4pm
Built in 1937 as a dance hall for the Big Band Era, The Rock Inn continues to be a lively gathering place with local flair. In the winter, our two wood-burning stoves keep the room toasty for folks stopping in for a beer or a bite after playing in Rocky Mountain National Park. During the summer season we enjoy stunning continental divide views from our outdoor dining patio.
Our menu is an ever evolving blend of hand-crafted, hearty comfort food with a health and planet conscious twist. We aim to fill you up with goodness so you can get back to enjoying the mountains again tomorrow. We feature Certified Angus Beef, All-Natural Colorado chicken, fresh salads, whole grains, organic teas and coffees, local beers, sustainable produced wines, and a full bar.
On frequent Fridays after dinner, we set-up one of many original Colorado bands on our nearly 80 year old stage, clear the dance floor and boogie all night. During the summer time, acoustic music acts play most other nights of the week, Sunday nights are a mellower feeling as we host acoustic Colorado songwriters during dinner. You might catch Jon Pickett, Alex Thoele, KC Groves, Follow the Fox, Jay Roemer, David Potter, Sean Flynn, Jay Stott, or Terry Kishiyama and Ash Ganley. We also offer a great open bluegrass pick on Tuesday during the summer and Thursday during the winter months, lead by a few talented local musicians, either joining in on the pick or just sitting back and enjoying the bluegrass, these are funny nights of music.
We look forward to having you join us. Reservations are not accepted, however if you want to give us a call (970-586-4116) when you are on your way we will be happy to get a table ready for you or put you on the list. During the off-season there is rarely a wait. In July, August, and September it is best to get here before 6pm.
We open at 4 pm daily. Our closing hours vary with the season and weather.
Take-out is available. We do not use any Styrofoam containers. 970-586-4116.
