Year-Round What’s New in Telluride
There are consistently new businesses and new business owners around town. People have impeccable ideas about how to contribute to the community, and they launch new spots, and open their doors. The composition of what storefronts you can find on Main Street may change with the seasons. Some of the spaces have been occupied for years, and yet others still are just opening their doors. It’s exciting to see what new spots exist around town. Supporting local always feels good, and in Telluride it’s easy to do.
Telluride is a town of many charms
Least of which are the businesses (nearly all of them locally owned) that line Colorado Ave. and the surrounding blocks. In fact, the entrepreneurial spirit here is as ingrained in the culture as is the outright obsession with the mountains. (Did you know Telluride is the world’s first town to use commercial AC power or that Bacon Salt was also invented by Telluriders?)
Some of our favorite haunts have been around for decades — see Sunshine Pharmacy, Sheridan Opera House, Sheridan Chop House and Telluride Trappings & Toggery — other dreams are just coming to fruition. And these new offerings are pretty exciting!
Here’s a few new spots we’re especially nuts about
In Telluride it’s not unheard of to be outright famous for the food you create. The drinks you concoct, the wine you select, or even the customer service you provide. There’s only one restaurant, arguably, in which all the greatest local food industry stars align to execute one shared vision: and that’s at The National. What’s more, the restaurant is absolutely gorgeous. With a mercantile vibe, a massive wine wall, and top-notch service, it’s going to be an evening to remember. Make reservations…now!
Latitude 38 Clubhouse
We’re very happy to bring our guests something truly unique: The Latitude 38 Clubhouse. Located the heart of the Mountain Village, it’s a private hangout exclusively for Latitude 38 guests and owners. Expect unmatched service at a truly convenient location, with complimentary ski lockers, on-site concierge services, and a cozy lounge. With free WiFi, coffee, snacks, and more, it’s the perfect spot to collect and recharge. Pro Tip: After skiing, meet the rest of your party here to map out the evening’s activities, and enjoy all that the lounge has to offer.
For decades this business on the “sunny side” corner of Colorado Ave. and Pine St. was known as Picaya, and it was a treasure trove of gorgeous, worldly collectibles. Today it’s reborn as Ethos, which is an endeavor and collaboration that re-imagines the space for community events and experiences (think yoga, gong baths, and astrological readings). With a retail space packed with worldly items, even if you don’t stay for a class, you’re still able to shop. So, enjoy!
Pop in, feel enchantment, and walk away with fresh flowers. Nested, by virtue of being a flower shop is a sensory experience, but it’s more than the cymbidium orchids. The owner seems to effortlessly materialize gorgeous ambiance so you may walk out of here wearing vintage gardening overalls from France. (And who could blame you?) In addition to the beautiful flowers, you have the option of little household wares, and cute garden additions. Also, this store is right across the street from the Latitude 38 office, which is such an ideal location.
This is a proud community, full of passionate people working hard to live their dreams. Whatever shop you step into, it’s reasonable to expect passionate people and great ideas. But, fair warning: If it’s a powder morning, don’t be surprised if you find a “Gone Skiing!” sign on the door. Some opportunities just can’t be missed!More Year-Round >
