  • Barker Lounge

    Barker Lounge

    475 Santa Fe Drive Denver, CO 80204
    303-778-0545

    http://www.barkerlounge.net A self-proclaimed "stray bar," the Barker Lounge attracts a wide array of patrons -- even if the disco balls hanging from the ceiling and the Madonna tunes blaring from the jukebox may suggest otherwise. The humble interior is clean and inviting, with a friendly staff. But the bar's best-kept secret -- and one that smokers will want to know -- is its patio: Shielded from busy Broadway by wooden fence, the deceivingly large wrap-around outdoor room is a cozy spot boasting plants, Christmas lights and a second bar to accommodate crowds in the summer months.

  • Black Crown Lounge

    Black Crown Lounge

    1446 S. Broadway Denver, CO 80210
    720-353-4701

    http://www.blackcrownlounge.com After taking over the former Cafe Cero/Open Tap space, business partners Mark Cameron and Brian Grace transformed it into an authentic piano bar that has what Cameron describes as an old-world, over-the-top, decadent country-club feel. While the multi-level, multi-room spot, situated on South Broadway’s Antique Row, offers fine cocktails and wine, small plates and brunch as well as live pianists and bands, the Black Crown also doubles as a retail store, where some of its lavish furnishings, such as chandeliers, mirrors, framed art and objets d'art, are for sale. There's also a patio in front and one in the back. Read more about Black Crown Lounge >>

  • Blush & Blu

    Blush & Blu

    1526 E. Colfax Ave. Denver, CO 80218
    303-484-8548

    http://www.blushblubar.com In 2012, Blush & Blu moved into the space formerly known as tHERe Coffee Bar & Lounge (hailed as Denver's lesbian Cheers). And while still lesbian-friendly, Blush & Blu puts more of a focus on its “Distinct Drinkery” tag. It’s still a place to get a great cup of coffee or coffee drink, but the bar and lounge also has a decent selection of beers, tinctures, elixirs and shots, as well as martinis and other cocktails. It’s a lively spot on weekends and hosts the occasional open-mic night during the week. Read more about Blush & Blu >>

  • Boyz Town Denver

    Boyz Town Denver

    117 Broadway Denver, CO 80203
    303-722-7373

    http://www.boyztowndenver.com One of Denver's prime spots for male revues, Boyz Town hosts them every day of the week except Mondays, starting at 10 p.m. Essentially a gay bar, the club is also popular for bachelorette parties; as the name implies, the dancers are (for the most part) in their early twenties. Since the space is a bit on the small side, it can fill up fast, leaving little room to move around, but that could be seen as part of its charm. It's also an ideal spot for people-watching.

  • Broadways

    Broadways

    1027 Broadway Denver, CO 80203
    303-623-0700

    http://www.broadwaysdenver.com A self-proclaimed "community bar," Broadways, which sits just blocks from Civic Center Park, has been a pre- and post-parade destination of spirited Pride festival-goers for the past eight years. But during the rest of the year, the storefront spot is a nondescript hangout for all kinds, with a pool table garnering the most attention and a tiny bungalow of a dance floor sometimes occupied by a DJ. The jukebox can be found blaring everything from Whitney Houston to Queen, but the patrons bellied up to the wooden bar top surrounded by wooden walls don't seem to mind what's playing. Broadways' small interior suits regulars just fine, but the establishment's back patio -- which will see an expansion in the spring -- is the bar's best feature. Picnic tables and umbrellas accommodate bigger summer crowds, and the outside back bar nearly doubles the amount of space. Read more about Broadways >>

  • Charlie

    Charlie's Denver

    900 E. Colfax Ave. Denver, CO 80218
    303-839-8890

    http://www.charliesdenver.com You don't have to wrangle cows or wrestle steers to feel at home at this cowboy-themed gay bar, which also has outposts in Phoenix, Las Vegas and Chicago. Charlie's offers a sit-down bar, a stage for its weekly (and very popular) drag shows, and a fenced-in outdoor patio that's the place to be when Colorado's famous sunshine is making an appearance. You'll also find two dance floors at Charlie's -- and if you don't know the first thing about line-dancing or two-stepping but think you might enjoy them, Charlie's offers lessons. And if you don't feel like line-dancing or two-stepping on a particular evening, there are always alternatives. There's something going on here every night of the week, whether it's karaoke, a half-off drink-specials night, or a night when your drink specials depend on your taking it half off: On Fridays and Saturdays, shirtless men get half off well drinks.

  • Club Q

    3430 N. Academy Blvd. Colorado Springs, CO 80917
    719-570-1429

    http://www.clubqonline.com One of the main gay bars in Colorado Springs, Club Q has been going strong since 2003 with weekly dance nights, drag shows and karaoke nights. Hidden behind a strip mall in the northeastern part of the city, the place may be a little hard to find at first, but your search will be rewarded: Club Q, which is also straight-friendly, is relatively laid-back and drama-free.

  • The Compound

    The Compound

    145 Broadway Denver, CO 80203
    303-722-7977

    http://www.compounddenver.com Open from 7 a.m. to 2 a.m. seven days a week, 365 days a year, the Compound's corner-bar (and gay-bar) legacy is just that: a twenty-plus-year run as a drinking place that barely closes. Weekday patrons start rolling in from hospital night shifts to take advantage of the early opening (and a 7 a.m. happy hour), while rowdier nighttime crowds looking to dance come later to shut the bar down. Bold purple walls and black plastic-tiled floors run throughout the front room, where a small bar services pool- and darts-playing patrons and those looking to socialize in the newly renovated tall vinyl booths. Just through a cavernous opening sits a giant wooden dance floor with a DJ booth perched high above, and Friday nights find the space wall-to-wall with sweaty bodies filing in from a line that often forms around the south Broadway building. Just outside of the dance room's glass doors is a smoking patio, heated in the fall and winter months for year-round use. The only odd accoutrement of the Compound is its wall of lockers for personal item storage. Read more about The Compound >>

  • The Denver Eagle

    The Denver Eagle

    1475 36th St. Denver, CO 80205
    303-291-0250

    http://www.theeaglebar.com The Denver Eagle is a massive club inside an old warehouse space just north of LoDo. Opened in May 2006, the venue regularly hosts special events, including underwear parties, foam Fridays and Black-Eyed Balls; Broncos games and DJs, as well as drink deals, are prominently featured on the regular schedule. The handle on the front door gives a good clue to the gay leather-bar nature of the Eagle, whose atmosphere is best experienced on the large patio with ample stadium seating.

  • The Denver Wrangler

    The Denver Wrangler

    1700 Logan St. Denver, CO 80203
    303-837-1075

    http://www.denverwrangler.com In the gay community, big, hairy guys are sometimes referred to as "bears." While the Denver Wrangler is one of the city's main bear haunts (and you're bound to see quite a few, some in leather and some wearing Western wear) the place attracts a lot of other guys, especially on the weekends and during its legendary Sunday beer busts, which feature all-you-can-drink Bud Lights from 4 to 8 p.m. The Wrangler's game room has dartboards, arcade games and pool tables, and DJs spin on Saturdays, with rotating themes including high-energy bear dance parties on the second and fourth Saturday of the month. The party spills out onto the outdoor patio during warmer months. Read more about The Denver Wrangler >>

  • Lil' Devils

    255 S. Broadway St. Denver, CO 80209
    303-733-1156

    http://www.lildevilslounge.com After a long run at 255 South Broadway, the Barker Lounge relocated near the Santa Fe Arts District, and Li'l Devils took over the Broadway spot in late 2012. The building was spruced up inside and out, giving it a classier feel, but Lil' Devils is still a low-key, comfortable lounge that caters to both the gay and straight communities. Music videos are shown on multiple TVs around the bar, which offers Colorado craft beers and wines along with its specialty cocktails, and there's a decent-sized patio. Read more about Lil' Devils >>

  • R&R Denver

    R&R Denver

    4958 E. Colfax Ave. Denver, CO 80220
    303-320-9337

    http://www.rrdenver.com The rainbow blocks painted on the door and the Coors Pride light let patrons know from the get-go that R&R is a gay bar, but it's gay in both senses of the word. It's a cozy, clean space filled with friendly interruptions and lively conversations, and you don't need a specific sexual preference to be welcomed. R&R feels more like a cocktail party at someone's house than a bar -- that is, if that person lit their apartment with black lights and had a large white Formica bar. It's also a comfortable place where patrons' birthdays are posted each month on a whiteboard and people introduce themselves as friends while critiquing the bartender's pours with a laugh. R&R hosts a dart league for its two electric dartboards and sells dart-related supplies, and there's a large vending machine stocked with chips and cigs. Read more about R&R Denver >>

  • Tracks

    Tracks

    3500 Walnut St. Denver, CO 80205
    303-863-7326

    http://www.tracksdenver.com Tracks brings much-needed color and spark to Walnut Street. A neighborhood that was once entirely made up of warehouses now has bars and clubs popping up left and right. Tracks has a large, floor-lit dance floor, surrounded by neon lights and disco balls as far as the eye can see. The crowd is young, colorful and ready to party. Read more about Tracks >>

  • X Bar

    X Bar

    629 E. Colfax Ave. Denver, CO 80203
    303-832-2687

    http://www.xbardenver.com There's something for everyone along Colfax Avenue, and X Bar marks the spot for a very diverse cross-section of the population. This clubby dance-party-meets-casual spot with its "Drink. Laugh. Dance." motto touts itself as LGBT-friendly, but it's serious about appealing to neighbors, too, and inviting anyone interested to join in the fun. The party really gets going in the evening, when nightly drink specials and themed parties keep the crowd dancing until the wee hours. Read more about X Bar >>
