We offer several dining options to suit any taste but all feature delicious food, historical ambience and old world service.

If you are standing in the Diamond Belle Saloon you just may have stepped back in time. Revered as one of the most famous original ragtime piano bars in the Wild West, the Belle plays host to the world's finest ragtime entertainers, while costumed Belle girls and bartenders transport you back to the turn of the century. Serving lunch, dinner and drinks daily and Sunday Brunch.

The Office Spiritorium is the local’s favorite for happy hour and martinis.  Cleverly named, this establishment is a destination for those who wish to relax after work yet still spend a little more time at "the office." With its lavish and comfortable décor, The Office can't really be called a bar, saloon, tavern or lounge. We think you might just call it your favorite spot!

Mahogany Grille specializes in the art of steak and seafood, and offers a vegan and vegetarian menu. Enjoy handcrafted cuisine while stepping back in time. Experience that ambiance of the Victorian Old West as we serve you an array of eclectic culinary specialties. When Preparing the Mahogany Grille menu our award-winning staff gives special focus to farm-freah recipes that represent new styles with old west flavors. We hand-cut our steaks in our butcher shop, carefully select our foods, and incorporate products by local growers when available creating a mosaic of tastes and textures. We take pride in being well-versed in fine wines and spirits. Complimented with our aromatic food, our wines and spirits make quite a delicious impression.

The 2013 Summer season (June 21 - August 10) of the Durango Melodrama & Vaudeville is featuring Dirty Deeds at the Depot; Welcome to the small western town of San Juan Capistrano. A town where the Santa Fe Railroad has built one mighty beautiful train depot… complete with its own mission bell.

The play begins with an old Depot’s Station Master sitting on a bench reminiscing about the glory days of the Capistrano train. As he recalls the story we hear sounds growing in the darkened depot behind him… one traveler almost trips over a suitcase as it falls over… another traveler enters the depot rushing with arms full of baggage… a train whistle is heard… and steam pours in from off stage as a train arrives. It is now 34 years in the past. The year is 1895 and the now young Station Master enters the newly built ticket office announcing the arrival of the Santa Fe from Chicago – Springfield – St. Louis – Wichita and Albuquerque.

This is when gentle young Lacie Camisole enters the depot awaiting the arrival of a train from Chicago to meet her “future husband”. Not one of her selection, mind you, but one chosen by her father so she can save the Camisole family ranch. Lacie has resigned herself to her fate until she finds that the new station master is her long lost, but not forgotten childhood sweetheart Justin Tyme.

Will this surprise revelation change the course of her future? Is the arrival of Professor Mack’s Traveling Medicine Show merely a coincidence or does the “Professor” have a nefarious scheme up his sleeve? What brings the Gypsy Claire Voyant to town? I know “the train”… but what is the secret that she is keeping? Will the Local School Marm innocently ruin Lacie’s chances for happiness? Will the ranch get saved? What is Wyatt Earp doing in town? And why is it that you can’t find a Pinkerton agent when you really need one?
