Dostal Alley Casino history

Dostal Alley was one of the first eight casinos in Colorado to open in October 1991 and is the only one still in business.

The building was first opened in 1958 by Phillip and Ruth Schmalz as a ‘rock shop’ that sold exquisite gems as well as gold nuggets. The couple’s son and daughter-in-law, Bruce and Sandy Schmalz, took over the operations in 1972 and added the T-Shirt Corner Store in 1987.

With the legalization of gambling in Colorado in 1991, the Schmalz family opened Dostal Alley Saloon and Gambling Emporium. Six years later, they decided to eliminate the rock shop and T-shirt store. Those businesses were replaced by the bar and brewery upstairs.

Dostal Alley still is family owned and operated by Bruce and Sandy Schmalz.
