Photos: First look at the 1Up Colfax, renamed bar and music venue's grand opening tonight

A year after opening the 1UP in LoDo, owner Jourdan Adler took over the former home of Pete's Monkey Bar in the summer of 2012 and put his second arcade-themed bar, the 2UP, in that space. Last April, Adler secured the space next door, which once housed Kitty's East for decades. After completely renovating the place and turning it into a 500-person music venue, the 1Up Colfax, as the club will now be known (the downtown location is now the 1Up LoDo), celebrates its grand opening tonight with Yamn.
