Please Welcome Our Newest Business Member – Appaloosa Grill

One of UpDoNa’s newest business members, Appaloosa Bar & Grill (aka “The Horse”), is an American/World traditional restaurant and live music venue located on the 16th Street Mall. The Horse was originally the vision of former Colorado Governor John Hickenlooper and was established in April 2001. In July 2005, Oakhurst band members/employees Johnny James Qualley & Adam Hill purchased the restaurant and have since sold interest to other employees; Mark Kline (Bar Manager), Mattè Copeland (AGM), and Guy Faulkner (Talent Buyer).

Appaloosa Grill serves delicious, fresh, high quality all natural proteins and uses organic produce when and wherever possible. Everything is made from scratch, right down to the ketchup! Chef Francisco Quintana has created a menu that features a wide variety of comfort foods as well as a large selection of vegetarian, gluten free and vegan options. The Grill boasts two happy hours daily and the kitchen is open until 12:30am nightly.

In 2007 the restaurant underwent a major renovation and expansion providing additional dining areas and upgrades to the stage, lights and sound system. This dramatically improved the free nightly talent offerings. The renovations were essential to The Horse becoming what it is today- including the ability to draw in national bands and musicians and providing space to host large, private parties. There is live music nightly from 9 pm until midnight!

A recent “UpDoNa Night Out” (UNO) event was held at the Appaloosa grill with a great turnout and delicious food and drink. Everyone reported having a wonderful time! Please stop by and enjoy the food, bar and live music. For more information about events, music, and renting out available event space please check the Appaloosa website: https://appaloosagrill.com/.
