Blue Ice

22 Broadway
Denver, CO 80203
While it may have started off trying to be a non-LoDo bar, it's probably the closest thing to a LoDo-vibed dance club on South Broadway -- only the drinks are cheaper, so it's clear why Blue Ice has the dance-club market cornered in the Baker District. Nearly every night at the lounge is different theme with a different crowd, whether it be salsa, tango, hip-hop or reggae. With its leather couches, the place can a relaxed spot to sip on martinis in the early evening, but come Friday and Saturday, the place fills up fast.
