On the edge of a residential neighborhood and just a stone's throw from I-70, the bar known as JD's for the past few years has existed as a neighborhood drinking spot for the better part of three decades. The place is clean, bright and certainly friendly: Patrons are offered a free paper tray of popcorn upon entering -- once they've been properly ID'ed, of course. The bar also serves up nachos, hot dogs and pizza to go with its cocktails and domestic drafts. The wide-open, green-carpeted room hosts karaoke and Texas Hold 'Em tournaments throughout the week, while a live DJ brings the music and flashing lights on Fridays and Saturdays. A huge side patio, open year-round for smokers, is where regulars can be found when they aren't staking their claim at the bar top.
