Lion's Lair

  • $
This address has long housed an independent venue — first as the Aladdin Tavern in the ’30s, then as the Playboy Lounge — until Hugh Hefner paid its then-owner $5,000 to change the name. In 1967, the club was purchased by John Lyons, who transformed it into the Lion's Lair. Now its current owners are keeping its legacy alive as one of the best places in town to sip cheap drinks and see live entertainment. This is a living piece of Colfax history that we hope never changes.
