The Dining Hall
COLORADO BISTRO CUISINE
The Victorian-style Chautauqua Dining Hall has been a Boulder tradition since 1898. It was built in 1898 in 40 days for $11,000 and seated 400 people. Its first manager was Oliver T. Jackson, a local Black entrepreneur who founded the African American community of Deerfield, Colorado in 1910. Open year-round, the Dining Hall offers a full bar with local beers and great wines to complement your meal.
