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.
