The Bar Car

The Bar Car

Given the building's rather nondescript front, the dark, rustic interior -- with its wisps of an old-timey railroad theme -- is a pleasant surprise.
Historians Ale House

Historians Ale House

The long bar at Historians Ale House is reminiscent of something you would find in Boston or Chicago, with its never-ending line of taps surrounded by warm brick walls and sky-high ceilings.

  • Sam

    Sam's Bar & Lounge

    6801 Leetsdale Drive Denver, CO 80224-1522

    While some of Denver's classic dives are dying off, places like Sam's Bar & Lounge continue to forge ahead. Sid Maniatis, one of the bar's owners, says the bar and its iconic neon sign have been in the family for four decades. Today's sign has changed slightly from its original form, however: The flashing marquee lights on the arrow had to be replaced with neon because the flashing was too distracting to drivers. Aside from that, not a whole lot at Sam's has changed inside or out over the past forty years, which is definitely part of the joint's vintage, gritty charm. Read more about Sam's Bar & Lounge >>

  • Samana Lounge

    228 Bridge St. Vail, CO 81657
    970-476-3433 One of Vail’s main nightlife spots, the Samana Lounge hosts resident DJs and nationally known spinners and producers such as Mark Farina and DJ Dan and Bassnectar, as well as live acts like Henry Butler, Eric McFadden and Widespread Panic’s Jo Jo Herman. The weekends ― the only time the place is open ― usually turn into energetic, rowdy dance parties. Inspired by lounges and cozy dance clubs in New York, Amsterdam, Prague and Paris, the Samana has an area near the dance floor with bottle service. Read more about Samana Lounge >>

  • Sancho

    Sancho's Broken Arrow

    741 E. Colfax Ave. Denver, CO 80203
    303-832-5288 Step a few feet inside Sancho's Broken Arrow and there's no mistaking that you're in a Grateful Dead­centric, tie­dyed hippie hangout. Live bands stake out Sancho's on Mondays, but jukebox jockeys normally take care of the music. The jukebox is stocked with enough Dead to last for weeks. Every so often, though, you need a break from Jerry and company, and there are a few other artists sprinkled in ­­ cats like Leon Russell and the Talking Heads, as well as jam­-centric acts like Widespread Panic, String Cheese Incident and Gov't Mule. The place is packed before and after shows at the Fillmore Auditorium next door; otherwise, the vibe is easygoing, roomy and kind. Read more about Sancho's Broken Arrow >>

  • Sand Creek Lounge

    Sand Creek Lounge

    16893 E. Iliff Aurora, CO 80013

    Huskers haters, beware: The Sand Creek Lounge is a proud bastion for Nebraska fans, an allegiance that comes directly from one of the owners. The small suburban pub also hosts a diverse crowd of sports fans -- boosters that include both Broncos lovers and Raiders followers. The bar's regulars come for more than the televised sports games. Sand Creek boasts a championship dart team and a regular pool league, features that make the space a constant buzz of activity. With regular Saturday-night steak specials and karaoke contests throughout the week, the lounge draws a wide range of customers, a largely local base that fluctuates in age depending on the time of day. While the family-owned bar boasts daily specials, Sand Creek's real appeal is in its boisterous and intimate feel. If you're willing to mingle with the regulars, it won't take long to be incorporated into the crowd, no matter what your sports affiliation. Read more about Sand Creek Lounge >>

  • Satellite Bar

    308 E. Colfax Ave. Denver, CO 80203-1816

    The space that was once home to legendary Capitol Hill dive the Congress Lounge got new owners and a much-needed scrubbing in 2007, and reopened as the Satellite Bar. Although it could still be considered a dive by younger folks who've never been to a good old-fashioned one like the Nob Hill up the street, the Satellite is really just a small, comfortable, no-frills joint where there's not a lot to do beyond drinking and engaging in some colorful Colfax people-watching. That said, you're bound to meet a good assortment of interesting people inside, as well. Read more about Satellite Bar >>

  • Scooters Sports Bar & Grill

    Scooters Sports Bar & Grill

    13698 E. Alameda Ave. Aurora, CO 80012-1303
    303-366-0019 As its name implies, Scooter’s in Aurora is first and foremost a sports bar. You can catch any number of games on the hi-def TVs scattered around the place, as well as UFC fights. And although Scooter's, which also boasts a 1,700-square-foot deck, occasionally brings in live bands, there's usually dancing to DJs on Fridays and Saturdays, and karaoke is featured on Wednesdays. The grill's menu includes a variety of Mexican favorites, along with “build your own” burgers and homemade chicken-fried steak. Read more about Scooters Sports Bar & Grill >>

  • Scotty

    Scotty's Side Door Saloon

    12100 W. 44th Ave. Wheat Ridge, CO 80033

    While Scotty's Side Door Saloon Lounge, located inside the Howard Johnson's hotel in Wheat Ridge, seems fairly nondescript from the outside, it's quite the spacious joint inside. There are pool tables and a decent-sized dance floor to accommodate folks there for the live music on the weekends. During the week, the place attracts a steady stream of regulars for beer pong, poker, karaoke or to watch games. With its wood paneling and old-school wooden stools, the place feels like a big version of a late-'70s basement you might have had as a kid. Read more about Scotty's Side Door Saloon >>

  • Savannah Bar & Grill

    2510 E. Bijou St. Colorado Springs, CO 80909

  • Scruffy Murphy

    Scruffy Murphy's

    2030 Larimer St. Denver, CO 80205
    303-291-6992 This neighborhood pub offers a warm, inviting old world setting to have a beer or check out the occasional live act -- traditional Celtic and Irish folk music to acoustic rock -- and hang out with the locals. With a decent sized beer garden patio in the back and a small patio in the front, there's plenty of room to smoke as well. Read more about Scruffy Murphy's >>

  • The Shag Lounge

    The Shag Lounge

    830 15th St. Denver, CO 80202
    303-825-7424 Although the Shag's moniker and its mod decor seem inspired by the '60s, the music (spun by DJs) and the clientele are more of what's happening now. For the most part, it's a young, hip crowd with a fair amount of skaters (and sometimes skate and snowboard videos play on the flat-screens). The box-shaped club is a bit on the small side, so it fills up pretty fast, especially on the weekends. Read more about The Shag Lounge >>

  • Shakedown Bar

    Shakedown Bar

    304 Bridge St. Vail, CO 81657
    970-479-0556 One of Vail Village’s main live-music spots, the 190-capacity Shakedown Bar is run by co-owner Scott Rednor, who has toured with Blues Traveler, Dave Matthews, Lenny Kravitz and others. Based on the bar's killer sound system and pro lighting system, it’s clear that Rednor, who also plays in the house band, is serious about music and the variety of Colorado acts he brings in most nights of the week. The Shakedown attracts a diverse group of folks, from twenty-somethings to eighty-somethings. Read more about Shakedown Bar >>

  • Shananigans Bar

    8807 W Colfax Ave Lakewood, CO 80215

  • Sharks Saloon and Grill

    Sharks Saloon and Grill

    11475 W. Colfax Ave. Lakewood, CO 80215

    The sign at Sharks' Saloon & Grill promises “Food, Booze, Fun,” and that’s what you’ll get most nights at this Lakewood dive bar. While it may not be the cleanest joint in town, the ambience, or lack thereof, is part of its charm. Known for its cheap drinks and grub (breakfast, burgers and Mexican), Sharks attracts its share of blue-collar folks as well as bikers, and things can get a bit rowdy on the weekends.

  • Sheabeen Irish Pub

    Sheabeen Irish Pub

    2300 S. Chambers Road Aurora, CO 80014
    303-696-6131 The Sheabeen Irish Pub offers plenty of decor to match its Gaelic namesake. Maps of Ireland, vintage wooden Guinness placards and green flags dot the walls, and a poster from one of the first Colorado Irish Festivals bears a signature from Irish folk legend Tommy Makem. The authentic feel of the bar goes beyond its decorations, however, which is all the more remarkable considering its location in an anonymous strip mall in Aurora. Since 1989, the Sheabeen's owners have worked to make the suburban bar stand out, regularly hosting Irish musicians and holding Celtic festivals in the parking lot. The bar often features classic-rock bands, and the clientele is largely composed of Aurora locals. Still, Sheabeen has managed to keep the feel of a small Irish pub, a place where bartenders pour the Guinness carefully and turn shots of Jameson into works of art. As one of the state's oldest Irish bars, Sheabeen also holds a historic appeal. Read more about Sheabeen Irish Pub >>

  • Shelby

    Shelby's Bar & Grill

    519 18th St. Denver, CO 80202

    The structure that houses Shelby's was built in 1906 and, according to legend, has housed everything from an early Denver family to an undertaker's operation (giving rise to the rumor that the place is haunted) to a speakeasy during Prohibition, a brothel (giving rise to yet another rumor, about underground tunnels leading to nearby hotels) and various incarnations of a restaurant - cranking out spaghetti in the '30s and '40s, turning to ribs in the '50s. In 1979 it became Shelby's, and for the past thirty years, it's been a go-to joint for quick lunches and long, liquid after-work gatherings around the rectangular bar. The kitchen specialty is the burger, but the menu offers many alternatives, including Southwestern options and a lineup of bar snacks. Regulars here range from bike messengers to business leaders to hobos, and that's part of Shelby's charm: The beers and burgers are cheap, and entertainment's on the house.

  • Sheroz Nightclub and Sports Bar

    500 Santa Fe Blvd. Denver, CO 80204

  • Shine


    2027 13th St. Boulder, CO 80302
    303-449-0120 In 2008, triplets Jill, Jessica and Jennifer Emich bowed out of Boulder's restaurant scene when they sold Trilogy, their 13th Street wine bar; the space became the B-Side Lounge, which closed after a short run, and then Shug’s Low Country Cuisine. After working together for a few years on various projects, the Emichs decided to get back into the business and took over the space next door, which was once home to the Boulder Draft House. The new venture, Shine, serves organic, locally sourced food and a variety of elixirs and potions at the bar, as well as beers brewed on site. As they did at Trilogy, the sisters host live music and a number of other events at Shine, including cooking and nutrition classes. Read more about Shine >>

  • Shooters Lounge & Restaurant

    Shooters Lounge & Restaurant

    inside Sonesta Lanes Denver, CO 80229

    You've seen The Big Lebowski. And even if you haven't, you've been to a bowling alley bar. Shooters is a bowling alley bar. More specifically, Shooters finds itself buried within the Sonesta Lanes in Thornton. It's much of what you'd expect: A window from Shooters looks out on the lanes for quick beer delivery to thirsty competitors, then curves into a longer, more traditional bar inside. What you might not expect at a bowling alley is such a cavernous space behind the stool service. The long joint boasts pool tables, karaoke on some nights and an atmosphere that might befit your boss's retirement party. The best thing to do is just saddle up and order White Russians all around. Read more about Shooters Lounge & Restaurant >>

  • Shotgun Willie

    Shotgun Willie's

    490 S. Colorado Blvd. Denver, CO 80246
    303-388-9601 For three decades, Shotgun Willie's was housed in an unflashy little building next to the Glendale Target parking lot, entertaining the masses as only Shotgun Willie's can. But in 2013, the owners of the gentlemen's club decided to replace the droopy old digs with firmer ones. Set back from the street, the new building is bigger and fancier but still manages to look a little retro (sort of a '90s look rather than the '80s-style aesthetic of old). Shotgun's also acquired a new sign a while back -- an exaggerated version of its limp-shotgun logo. We hope those lights stay lit for a long time. Read more about Shotgun Willie's >>

  • Si Amigos

    9500 E. Colfax Ave. Aurora, CO 80010-5009

  • Sidewinder


    4485 Logan St. Denver, CO 80216-3524
    303-295-1105 For decades, the Sidewinder was a storied Globeville dive, but in December 2012, a group of local musicians, including Fez Garcia (with some help from his folks) took over the spot and gave the bar a bit more hipster cred. Garcia says they’re trying to recapture the vibe of the now-defunct Gabor’s in Capitol Hill: laid-back, not pretentious, and just really cozy. As expected, the jukebox is filled with lots of local bands, as well as mix CDs brought in by patrons. Read more about Sidewinder >>
