Don's Club Tavern, one of Denver's longest-surviving dive bars, got a bit of a facelift after the bar's namesake died and the folks behind the Little Pub Company took it over in 2005. And while most of the decor and a lot of the old charm are still intact -- as are some of the serious-about-their-drinking regulars -- it also got a few improvements, such as a big garage door facing Sixth Avenue that opens for warm weather; more booths and tables with stools; a back-patio-length green paint job, aluminum roof and industrial heater; high-def flat-screen televisions; Golden Tee and Silver Strike video games; and touch-screen point-of-sale registers.
