Tucked away in a strip mall off 64th Avenue and Ward Road, the Ralston Lounge has been a longtime Arvada fixture. The no-frills neighborhood joint attracts a fair number of easygoing regulars to its early-morning happy hours, and with its nondescript furnishings, it feels like not a whole lot has changed here in the last few decades, which is a big part of the Ralston's charm. Entertainment options include a jukebox, a few pool tables and pinball machines, and there's a small dance floor and a tiny stage that hosts karaoke on the weekends. The lounge doesn't have a full menu, but if you ask nicely, they'll heat up a frozen pizza for you.
