My name is Chris Cone. I purchased the Buffalo Rose in April 2016. I’m a long-time resident of Golden, having moved here in 1998. My wife was raised in Golden, we have three young daughters, and we love being an active part of Golden’s tight-knit community. Since we acquired the Buffalo Rose, we are proud to have have hired numerous Golden residents, Golden High School and School of Mines students, and we have directed the purchase of many products and services toward local businesses.

Since our purchase of the Buffalo Rose, there has been conjecture in the community about our plans for the re-development of the property – we would like to share our vision with you. The Buffalo Rose has a long and interesting history as an integral part of the city, but the facility itself is suffering. The venerable old building is in very rough condition. As such, we are planning a significant remodel of the facility. We will not be changing the basic purpose of the building and we are going to great lengths to preserve whatever structure, materials and historical architectural elements we possibly can consistent with contemporary design and life safety standards. When we are ultimately finished with the project, the Rose will continue to be a restaurant and bar with a connected live event venue. Our goal is to create an environment that welcomes and invites everyone in the community to gather for great food, drinks, live music and cultural events for many years to come.

Remodeling the Buffalo Rose will be a major undertaking right in the center of a busy downtown commercial district. We had targeted starting the project in April of 2017, but at this point we are not able to complete the extensive pre-construction process before this spring. So we will now remain open and continue operating the Buffalo Rose as is at least through late 2017.

Please come by the Buffalo Rose for great food, drinks and live music! And now would be an excellent time to contact us about having an event in our venue. We host everything from concerts to birthday parties to various community events with attendance between 25-250 people. To plan event, please call 303-278-6800 and ask for Mick McManus.

We sincerely appreciate your ongoing support and patience as we prepare the Buffalo Rose for a major facelift and we certainly appreciate your continued business. Let us know if you have any questions about our plans for the Rose and we will post any major plan updates as they occur.
