After a long run as Pogue Mahone's and a shorter run as McMullen's Irish Pub, a new bar called Clavin's Bar & Grill moved into the space at 17904 Cottonwood Drive in Parker last month.

The spot is named after Cliff Clavin, the popular postman on Cheers (the owner's name happens to be Cliff as well), and manager Mackenzie Riley says the goal is to move Clavin's from being part of the bar scene and turn it in to more of a restaurant (except on the weekends). They've added new lighting and tried to make it more family-friendly; there are a number of young couples' and apartment complexes in the area.

Clavin's will have drink specials during football games on the weekends and during Monday Night Football games; Mondays are also service-industry nights for hospitality workers, as well as policemen, firefighters, postal and hospital workers. Karaoke is on Tuesdays; ladies get half off wine on Wednesdays; and Fridays are date night, where a half a bottle of wine comes with the purchase of two entrees.

Keep Westword Free... Since we started Westword, it has been defined as the free, independent voice of Denver, and we would like to keep it that way. Offering our readers free access to incisive coverage of local news, food and culture. Producing stories on everything from political scandals to the hottest new bands, with gutsy reporting, stylish writing, and staffers who've won everything from the Society of Professional Journalists' Sigma Delta Chi feature-writing award to the Casey Medal for Meritorious Journalism. But with local journalism's existence under siege and advertising revenue setbacks having a larger impact, it is important now more than ever for us to rally support behind funding our local journalism.
