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

If you're a little bit country, you're going to like Lil & Lou's Wreck -- a lot. The bar, which bills itself as "Sexy, Southern Fun," opened last week around the corner from Larimer Square. And it's a country paradise, complete with a tire swing hanging from the ceiling, bras hanging from the bars, and an all-female staff of waitresses and bartenders, many of whom will jump up on the bar to do a sexy line dance...to country music, of course, because that's the only genre you'll hear at the Wreck Denver. "Sexy, Southern fun is what we go by," says bartender Hannah Losurdo. "We wanted a country club that wasn't gonna turn into a late-night club." Customers are encouraged by a "Bras 4 Booze" sign to add their undergarments to the collection already on display; they're also invited to join in the choreographed line dances."We encourage people to come and drink and have a good time and just enjoy the atmosphere," says Losurdo, who definitely does.

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.
