The last pour at Pete's Monkey Bar

1 of 28
After a two-and-half year run, Pete Penzastadler closed Pete's Monkey Bar, 717 East Colfax Avenue, with one last blowout on Monday, April 30, 2012. Penzastadler, who says it was "a fucking awesome run," closed the spot because he just needed to move on. Penzastadler, a former bartender at Sancho's Broken Arrow a few doors down, opened Pete's Monkey Bar in the former Dulcinea's 100th Monkey spot, which had been part of the Bianchi Brothers' Quixote's empire of clubs since 2002, and kept the place Dead-centric.
