Previously located in a basement near 2nd Avenue and Fillmore Street in Cherry Creek, RooBar could be hard to find your first time there. But once inside the subterranean spot, it felt like a secret speakeasy of sorts. Knute Hanson, who owned the bar for the last decade, had to pack up last year as part of the neighborhood’s new planning process.

But fans of the Cherry Creek institution might rejoice in the fact that he’s re-opened the spot this week at 3480 Park Avenue West in the Railyard Marketplace. The new location should be easier to find, as it’s a stones throw away from I-25 and just down the road Coors Field. It’s also just off the bicycle trail, and cyclists might appreciate the spot’s bike repair stand and tools.

The new RooBar boasts a full menu until 1 a.m. nightly, a patio, saltwater aquariums, pool tables, shuffleboard and a jukebox. There will also be two happy hours that run Mondays through Fridays; from 5 to 7 p.m. and from 10 p.m. to midnight.
