Location: Lakewood, CO. Kind of tucked away from the main street, next to a gun store.
Atmosphere: Big and clean.
Bathrooms: Quite clean. Wonder what it’s like on a weekend/busy night.
Staff: Friendly enough. A few seemed a bit unenthused, but then again it’s the middle of the week.
Patrons: Older crowd for the pool tournament. Younger crowd for the free pool/billiards. Mostly white males, early to mid-twenties.
Drinks: Didn’t try, but seemed reasonably priced.
Food: The menu looks good. I’ll have to go back sometime and make a point to try some things.
It was fairly busy when my friends and I arrived, but not so busy that we weren’t able to find an empty pool table. This is definitely not what I consider a “dive bar”, it has a more er, corporate or franchise feel to it. Lots of space. Matching tables and booths or chairs/barstools. Large heated patio (which is ESPECIALLY NICE, since it’s been so cold and rainy this spring.) I was DD so I didn’t try any of the mixed drinks or shots. There weren’t too many obnoxious drunks but a few, and that only towards closing. I’m hoping to come in on a Sunday soon to try out “Cashbox Karaoke.” I don’t know what it means, but it sounds interesting.
Would I go again? Yeah, looking forward to it and I’d like to get a second impression.
