Stoney's Bar and Grill is slated to open the first week of August, says owner and namesake Stoney Jesseph. The new joint will be a sports bar but also aims to be a place "everyone from Colorado can relate to, if you're a native or just visiting," Jesseph claims.
The menu will be comprised of bar food with an attempt to source from Colorado whenever possible. "Our menu will consist of mainly sliders -- everything from Colorado beef and lamb to ahi to a couple of veggie sliders," says Jesseph, adding that they'll also be pouring Colorado suds exclusively.
Prior to opening, the space is getting a pretty extensive overhaul, which includes refacing the bar with barn wood from Gunnison and other recycled products from the state such as a gondola from Keystone that Jesseph says he hopes to be able to incorporate into a photo booth for patrons. But the most exciting addition to the space may be a skee-ball game.
"We are very excited to have a warm restaurant that welcomes all walks of life," Jesseph says.
