Lakewood Rock Haven Eck's Saloon Has Closed

Eck's Saloon, long a haven for both local and national hard rock acts like Warrant, Quiet Riot, and Skid Row, recently closed. The Lakewood-based music venue and bar, once owned by Mike Bruno (who also used to own Iliff Park Saloon and Bruno's Saloon) and which changed hands twice over the last two years, was home to fans of '80s hair metal and hard rock, hearty drinkers and bikers.

The walls near the decent-sized stage were lined with a good deal of hair-metal memorabilia. Poison's Bret Michaels, Warrant, Enuff Z Nuff have played at Eck's and in 2014 the venue hosted acts like Kip Winger, who played an acoustic show there last March, Michael Schenker Group, Jackyl and Faster Pussycat.
