Step through the swinging front doors and past the curved, glass brick entry into another era. The Zephyr began life as a diner styled after the Zephyr train cars of the art deco era in the 1930s before transforming into a bar for the hospital workers, Air Force members and airport employees who all worked near this spot on East Colfax Avenue — before I-70 took over as the major thoroughfare. Things are a little quieter these days on this stretch, but the drinks and entertainment are still as cheap as ever, and the art and curios that clutter the place make the Zephyr more than just another dim dive.
