The 1up Colfax

717 E. Colfax Ave. Denver, CO 80203 | Central Denver | 303-779-6444

Location Description:

A year after opening the 1Up, the hot arcade/bar in LoDo, owner Jourdan Adler took over the former home of Pete's Monkey Bar and put his second bar, now called The 1up Colfax, in its place. With more than 35 vintage arcade games, three lanes of Skee-Ball and nine pinball games, the space is on par with its downtown counterpart (now the 1up LoDo). About a year and a half after opening the Colfax location, Adler opened a 500-capacity music venue in the former Kitty's East space next door.
