As implied by its name, the now-defunct Recovery Room catered mostly to the employees of the ever-disintegrating University of Colorado Hospital campus across the street. When Leigh Jones -- of Horseshoe Lounge and Jonesy's fame -- bought the place, she overhauled it. Completely. The resulting Bar Car is a welcome addition to the East Denver scene. Given the building's rather nondescript front, the dark, rustic interior -- with its wisps of an old-timey railroad theme -- is a pleasant surprise. Also pleasantly surprising, given Colorado Boulevard's penchant for chains, is that the Bar Car is defiantly 'hood-focused, offering a well-curated draft-beer list heavy on locals. Patrons follow suit, whether they're stopping by for the daily happy hour or the deep-dish pizza, checking sports scores, or just soaking up the warm surroundings late at night. Plus, what other bar boasts a naked picture of Burt Reynolds as decoration?
