You haven't done Breck until you've bellied up to this bar on Main Street. The Gold Pan stands as an iconic link to the past. It started as a tent saloon for the miners in 1861, two years after the town was founded. It has been a landmark bar since that time, giving it the distinction of the oldest operating bar in Summit County and one of Colorado's oldest. The place is filled with legends and stories from the past, such as its underground tunnel that ran under the town and the "Shotgun Window" in the second floor used by lookouts during prohibition. Early ski area employees and Eisenhower Tunnel construction workers ritually passed through its swinging doors for a 35-cent beer.
