The Old Stone Church Restaurant one of several Great Happy Hours in Castle Rock
The Chaplain's Bar in the Old Stone Church - These guys are good.
Located in the middle of town, the Old Stone Church restaurant and bar is a Happy Hour in Castle Rock favorite, especially on warm evenings when the outside patio offers extra room for the crowd.
Daniel, the bar manager, and long time staffers Steve and George do a good job looking after the clientele. Theirs is a relaxed old-world style of service that is confident and friendly but not showy.
The building originally was a Catholic church built in the 1880s. I know, if you're from Europe or even the East Coast, the 1880s seems like yesterday, but here in Colorado something more than one hundred years old is a kind of a big deal. The stone and stained glass make for a nice atmosphere. Seating is limited in the bar and that can be a problem for groups on some evenings but the happy hour menu and drink specials usually make up for it.
Speaking of which, during Happy Hour Bud Light is on tap at half off or $2. How about that? Try a Bud Light with one of their tasty and unusual $5 Happy Hour appetizers like Shrimp and Goat Cheese Enchiladas, Cajun Blackened Tuna, Southwest Crab cakes or Grilled Brie Cheese, but save some room for desert. Jojo likes to order their Creme Brule. We usually get it with two spoons and as we're kind of a competitive duo - it dissapears fast. Come on, if you're married you probably know what I mean.
Also keep your eye on their white board for specials of the day. Mussels are often up there and we love them. Crane Lake Chardonnay, Merlot or Cabernet are $3, well drinks are $3.50 and a decent house margarita is $5.
At the Stone Church, Happy Hour is Tuesday thru Saturday 3PM to 6PM. Enjoy and drink responsibly.
