Support the independent voice of Denver and help keep the future of Westword free.

After generations as the Border, a beloved University of Denver neighborhood dive that served Mexican food and showed all the games, this space at 2014 South University has been rechristened Merchants Mile High Saloon.

It not only has a new name, it has a new look; the new owners are going for a "dark and sexy" feel.

Says Jim Rome:

Nothing says Dark and Sexy like Karaoke and Texas Hold 'em and Jalapeno Poppers.

Did you ever visit any of the incarnations of the Border? What kind of bar does the DU area really need?

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. You can help by participating in our "I Support" membership program, allowing us to keep covering Denver with no paywalls.
