Buckhorn Exchange

Wall to wall taxidermy at Denver's oldest and most exotic steakhouse


Founded in 1893, the Buckhorn Exchange displays antique weapons, hundreds of mounted animal heads and other assorted taxidermy displays upon its bright red walls.

In addition to the old-timey stuffed animal aesthetic, the menu boasts unique meats for the adventurous: rattlesnake, alligator tail, buffalo sausage, elk, quail, game hen, pheasant, venison, and Rocky Mountain Oysters (bull testicles).

The restaurant also claims to have been visited by Buffalo Bill himself and to be the oldest in all of Denver and displays its liquor license, labeled as Denver's first, to prove it. Some nights have an older gentleman performing renditions of Willie Nelson songs near the bar.
