The Bar - Closed

554 S. Broadway
Denver, CO 80209
After this spot's long run as the Atrium Bar & Grill, new owners took it over, cleaned it up and made it into a respectable neighborhood watering hole called the Bar. As the name might imply, it's a no-frills joint where pretty much anyone is welcome. While the bar on the south side of the building is the main focus during the week, the other half of the location is a decent music venue that brings in blues, jazz and rock acts on the weekends. The kitchen serves build-your-own cold sandwiches and a small selection of hot sandwiches, as well as homemade soup in the colder months.
