The Dive Inn

1380 S. Broadway Denver, CO 80210 | South Denver | 720-242-6157

Location Description:

Denver's longest-running gay bar, BJ's Carousel, closed in 2011 after a three-decade-plus run. The South Broadway spot was then gutted and remodeled, reopening in 2012 as the Dive Inn. The new bar's nautical theme was inspired by the owner's numerous trips as a teenager to Cozumel, where he opened a dive shop after high school. At the Dive Inn, photos from deep-sea fishing trips share space in the back room with foosball and pool tables and a second bar. The place also sports a taqueria and 2,500 square feet of patio space.
