Cheyenne has it all, from posh cocktails to Western dancing

A gorgeous drive to the rural outskirts of Cheyenne delivers you to former ranch-hand-quarters turned restaurant – the Bunkhouse, a decidedly Western roadside. Outside, the neighbors tie up their horses to await the ride back home. Friday and Saturday evenings feature a band crooning classic country tunes and locals two-stepping on the dance floor. Feeling extra adventurous? Try the “Swingin’ Sirloins,” fried to perfection.

Families will want to stop into Sanford’s Grub & Pub for a meal. The nostalgia-lined walls provide a rousing waiting-for-dinner game of I-Spy, and youngsters will be delighted to find gummy worms in their applesauce! As the kiddos don paper soda jerk hats for the meal, adults can enjoy one of the largest selections of beer on tap in town.

Those looking for an upscale evening should plan to patron the Paramount Ballroom. Housed in the remains of a theatre, the posh craft cocktail lounge serves beverages that pay homage to shows that graced the boards of the stage with names like Stubborn Cinderella, Ben Hur, and The Burglar and the Lady. The Ballroom also serves (vegetarian-friendly!) sharable “bites.” The spicy deviled eggs are widely favorited and make an incredible pairing partner with the edamame-based housemade hummus.
