While there aren't a whole lot of country bars near or even in Denver, the main ones are mostly huge spots -- and the Electric Cowboy, which is part of a national chain of country bars, is no exception. The Cowboy, which opened in 2007, has a massive dance floor that can get packed on the weekends and on ladies' night; dance lessons are also available. Although the bar attracts its share of dudes with cowboy hats and boots, it also brings in a fair amount of other locals from the surrounding Westminster and Arvada areas. And because not everyone is a die-hard country fan, DJs also toss in Top 40 tunes every now and then.
