Re: “Motif

Not worth the money! I came here for a girls'-night-out and we were seated by the piano; all we could focus on was the "colorful" language we heard coming from the kitchen. The food and drinks were mediocre at best, and the servers were obviously overwhelmed. Also, after being open for almost a year, you would expect this place to have some sort of sign, but this is not the case. To top it off, as I was leaving, I passed by the side-door and had who I believe was the yeller with colorful language from the kitchen tell me to "have a good evening" as he sat in a sweaty, dirty t-shirt and shorts and smoked a cigarette. I would expect this sort of behavior and attire from a fast food restaurant, not an upscale jazz club. I absolutely advise against going here!

Re: “Zodiac Venue and Bar

I didn't put them down, indeed many people I love dearly are guests and staff there. I simply think that goth night can be more. The Zodiac is showing very strong potential to give just that. I'm writing a review of the club and it's perfectly appropriate to cite the competition.

This was meant to be more about the Zodiac than the Underground, but that being said, it's been a long time since The UG has really been drenched in the goth spirit. It's nice that it's there and has been for so long, but that doesn't mean it cannot nor should not be done better. Just because it's the oldest, doesn't mean it's the best or even a real measure of what a goth club should be.

Re: “Zodiac Venue and Bar

Re: “Zodiac Venue and Bar

I've been in a few times, and I REALLY love it. I was crushed when the Rocket Room, the previous club, closed... but this has TRULY made up for it. The decor is beautiful, the music is fabulous, and the staff and regulars include some of the fundamental players in the local scene going back as far as the 80's. If it's this fabulous when it's this new, I expect that within a few more months it will be one of the hottest clubs in town, and may even destroy the Underground's HUGELY outdated rep as THE local goth club. I give it four stars.. and will raise it to five if they add bar food.

Re: “Pale Horse Bar and Lounge

Really Liked this place. Only one beer on tap but 7 or 8 in bottles. For a little bar they have an amazing liquor selection!! Ton of way more high quality booze then you would expect. We went in on a Tuesday and it was line dancing Zumba and Karoake. Way laid back staff they even gave us the T.V remote. Check them out!

Re: “Bernie's Place

The place is just to charming in a very real way ...Its like you can expect to be treated as though you belong . The bloody Mary is still the best I have ever had & my husband just love the guest that come by to sit & chat while scratching a lottery ticket.
The stories are wonderful . Make no mistake that this is just the best !

Re: “R and R Bar and Grill

Great corner bar to go and hang out at. Somewhere you can take the wife and not worry about getting stabbed like the bars on Tejon. Great food!!! You can get a Burger, Fries and a Soda for $5 bucks!!! They did this place right. Maybe a few too many tables and maybe add one more pool table or some darts.
They are just getting started so be patient with a few "growing pains".
Not a young peoples place. I think 30+ year olds is probaly the average.
This place is behind (really the west side) of 7-11 on Murray just south of Platte.

Re: “R and R Bar and Grill

A new bar and a decent one at that. They have a friendly staff, I've been personally greeted by the owners every time I've walked in, and a pleasant atmosphere. Thursday nights they offer karaoke and ladies night, Friday nights are live local bands, and Saturday nights are live comedy, with no cover charge any night. They have one pool table that's a dollar a game or 3 games for two dollars. Either way, it's more expensive per game than most other bars in town, so if you're just looking for some place to play pool look elsewhere. They have daily lunch specials and happy hour runs from 4-6 pm. It's not a Coors friendly bar, they don't have it on tap and their Bud/Coors bottle prices are the same as their Bud/Bud Light pint drafts. As it's a new bar, not much clientele yet, but that could change as it becomes more known.
Overall a decent bar, but still not as good as other bars in town that offer more selection, cheaper prices, and the same friendly atmosphere.

Re: “Bloom's Mill Hill Saloon

Boone's Mill Hill Saloon is a lot of fun! The best time I've had there is when "Tru Country Classics" were playing. What an awesome band!!!

Re: “Crystola Roadhouse

Being a Singer / Song Writer / Entertainer, I like to take in a show when I can to relax. I saw a great show Tommy Castro & Jim Adams at the Crystola Roadhouse on March 5, 2011 and it was excellent! Darryl Maggs is really making this establishment, top notch with original talented artists for the front range music lovers. Great dinners also...

Re: “The Blue Star

Hiring the new chef and snagging Nate as a bartender were excellent decisions. The late night menu needs work and the staff are okay, but not brilliant. More training and a little more panache would go a long way. It's Blue Star, not Jose Muldoons and I expect the staff to live up to a higher standard. All that said, it's good value, the best martini in town, and a wine list that compels a second look.

Re: “The Cow Pub & Grill

Me and my wife are really excited about this place. We have gone many times now and have enjoyed great service and a wonderful atmosphere. We have met new friends every time we have gone in. The bar and restaurant are open and the mood seems to attract a great crowd of people. It is hard to be alone at this place.

Now let’s talk food. My wife has always said that the best way to tell if the food is good is to try the appetizers. We tried the sampler platter. We were pleased with the selection and the taste was great. We have also tried the Wings, and they do not come by the piece. You get a whole pound! We tried the hot, but plan to try the other flavors soon. Wow, and the Fries with chili and cheese were great.

Me, I think the best way to check out a place is to try the Cheeseburger. Well the bread, meat and the cheese were a delight! My wife enjoyed her Green Chili and all was well in the world. The guy we sat next to had ribs and boy did they look good. Can’t wait.

The Beer, Cold Cold Cold (Nuff said). The mixed drinks are mixed just right. The Mixer complements the alcohol, the way it should be.

So, if you need a place to relax, unwind and enjoy good company and eats, and of course a good drink, then stop by the HOLY COW. The name says it all.

Re: “The Buzz

Belles Lounge is an amazing venue. It seems like every time I've gone in in the past month, the sound system has improved & so has the crowd ;D Ever since Funky Fresh Entertainment took over advertising, promotions & staff the place has taken off, from Brew & Beats' open EDM night on Monday to D*Funked Friday & Community Service Saturday. There's always something cool happening at Belles...... but what's up with the Nick Jr on tv?
