Troy Guard closed his dessert spot, Sugarmill, next door to Los Chingones at 2461 Larimer Street last year. Apparently booze is a bigger draw than desserts in RiNo, because the space was converted into a bar, as an extension of Guard's taco joint. The new bar, Los Lounge, opened this week; it has a separate entrance, a small patio and late-night food service, with a sampling of Los Chingones favorites from 9 p.m. to 1 a.m. Tuesday through Sunday. There's room for about forty guests, with bar seating, a lounge area with comfy couches and chairs, and high-top tables. Guard is also working on opening a fourth Los Chingones in the metro area, aiming for a summer opening at Colorado Mills.
