The former Grand Slam Sports Bar space at 9660 East Arapahoe Road in Greenwood Village will celebrate its grand re-opening as Slam Bar on Friday and Saturday, February 26 and 27. Jaima Manley, the bar's general manager, says the place has been completely redone, and this weekend's naughty- and nice-themed party will introduce the new VIP room, which has couches, a pool table, a separate bar and bottle service, as well as a kitchen that's open until midnight. Happy hour runs from 3 to 6 p.m. with twenty percent off all food, and Slam Bar will also host free Texas Hold 'Em tournaments Mondays through Fridays. Don't know how to play? Don't sweat it. Starting in March, the club will have free lessons on Saturdays at 1 p.m.
