A block west of I-25, near the 15th Street bridge, Forest Room 5 is just hip enough to be cool without seeming trendy. With its dim lighting and intimate tables, this eclectic spot attracts a youthful crowd most days of the week, especially on the weekends. While the place is spacious and houses a few different rooms, some of which can be rented out for private functions, it still retains a cozy warmth, and it’s easy to find a spot for a private conversation. What once felt just a little too hip has aged gracefully into a unique hangout that still maintains its cool.
