About The Bookcase & Barber

Jenna Black co-owns (with her husband, Beau Black) one of Durango’s most unique nightlife destinations, The Bookcase & Barber. A Prohibition era-themed speakeasy and barbershop, The Bookcase & Barber is a favorite local spot for handcrafted cocktails and an intriguing local atmosphere.

If she was taking visitors on a guided tour of Durango, Black says, “I’d want to take any visitor to all the different breweries—because they're all so different. All the way from Ska Brewing, to Carver Brewing Company, to Animas Brewing Company, and then all the way through the cocktail list, to include El Moro Tavern and the rooftop at Eolus Bar & Dining and the Ore House.”

She adds that other local hotspots have breathed life into The Bookcase & Barber. “Those places are the reason a place like The Bookcase & Barber can even be here. It's because they lifted that bar so high and elevated it so much that everyone knows what they’re doing is going to be pretty cool.”
