Campus Lounge

701 S. University Blvd. Denver, CO 80209 | South Denver | 303-722-9696

Location Description:

A Bonnie Brae staple for decades, the Campus Lounge epitomizes the friendly neighborhood saloon with its seasoned waitstaff, drink specials and an owner, Jim Whiste (a retired pro hockey player and DU Pioneer alum), who can often be found bellied up to the bar with his patrons on weekday afternoons. The kitchen is another draw, famous for a full menu of sloppy Mexican food and daily steak specials. The main room boasts huge booths perfect for lazy game-watching on a big-screen TV; and an adjoining space offers video games, pool, foosball tables - and a door that leads to the Campus Lounge's newest amenity, a low-key patio.
