Re: “Keg Lounge

I visited this establishment for the firt time on June 4, 2011 with two friends. It was after the wine fest and we wanted to sit, have some drinks, and have some food. One of the persons with us was the DD, so she ordered water. My friend and I recieved our drinks right away, but the water for the DD took 20 minutes. I found the bartender and asked him for the water, explaining it had taken 20 minutes. When the water came it was brown and dirty. My friend (not the DD) asked the bartender for another water, explaining the one he sent was dirty. At that time he pointed at me and said I was "hasseling him" already about the water and refused to replace it. When I asked for the owner he falsely claimed to be the owner (I found out by calling later) and told me to leave "his " bar. He even went so far as to call the police to make me leave, though I was waiting for the DD to come back from the restroom. When I called later to find out who the owner was he answered the first time and told me he wouldn't get into trouble because his mom owned the bar. IDK if mom wants her business run like that, but if this is any indication of how it is going to be run, then I and my associates will frequent another establishment. Love Manitou, very much dislike the Keg. I can't rate the food or value because I was told to leave before it came.

Re: “Red Martini

I have been to the Red Martini multiple times, and have ALWAYS had awesome service. The bartenders are great, always welcoming, remembering your name and previous conversations... like old friends, and are very knowledgeable about their mixology. I have taken lots of friends there and they always comment on what a great place it is. The entertainment isnt always stellar, but I go there for the drinks, so I'm good with that.

Re: “Motif

Can be charming, depending on who's there and who is playing in the band. Incredible players like Wayne Wilkenson on guitar are there on occasion, but then some wannabees always seem to show up. The most forgetable-the highly over-rated Bruce Pennington on piano.....ugh..... Seriously, if I hear another cliche' "Liberace"-like scale run from the keys i'll jump out a window. As long as there is a variety rotation in play, this place is worth checking out... but beware the afor mentioned lounge lizard act.

Re: “Red Martini

The Red Marini bar is AWFUL. The service is terrible, the employees are rude, discriminatory, and obnoxious. I would not recommend this place to anyone. If you are looking for a fun place with a great vibe, THIS IS NOT IT.

Re: “Motif

I just went to Motif for the first time this weekend and LOVED it!! There was a male singer who was amazing. Loved that I felt like I was in a big city, but only had to drive 20 minutes to get there. My friends and I shared a bunch of stuff off the menu. The sliders and fries were to die for and the chef's special was great as well. A little hard to find, but it was well worth the search, it was a real treat. The service was great, and the drinks as well. The mango martini was out of this world. Can't wait to go back!

Re: “Copperhead Road

goes with the territory, country,,,der. I know you wouldnt experience stuff like this at Jack Quinn's, SS Johnny's, etc. If you're 22 and love to hoot-n-hollar when Charlie Daniels comes on...this is the place. Oh yea, and like everyone above said, bring your checkbook.

Re: “Copperhead Road

I witnessed a disturbing event last night as we were being ushered off the patio. I saw the entire exchange from start to end. 1 of the bouncers told a drunk guy he was going to f* the drunk guys wife, clearly trying to incite a fight. I found myself telling their bouncer to stop. Not a way to run a professional establishment. Since I'm usually the DD, be assured that I am making no plans for a trip to Copperhead Road again. I usually side with the law and order side of any argument, thinking that the bar patron did something to provoke getting thrown out, but there was no valid reason for this crappy treatment.
My advice: If your looking to get insulted, your butt kicked and thrown in jail for fighting, go here. Otherwise, there are several other clubs in this town you can go to to have a good time.

Re: “Front Range Barbeque

Some of the worst BBQ I have ever had and I know my BBQ. The brisket tasted like it was broiled in an over, the ribs were fatty and I'm not sure what the sausage was made from. The side dishes consisted of baked bean ( tasted like they came from a can) and potato salad (absolutely no flavor what so ever. The only good things I have to say was the portions were large and the service was good.

Re: “Old Chicago - Academy

Who's got balls big enough to serve a hot dog for $10 by calling it a Chicago Dog, then serve it without sport peppers? OC.

Still a favorite place of mine, but their recent "Chicago-inspired Classics" spring menu has felt like a failure in both concept and execution.

The $16.99 10oz loin steak is acceptable but not inspiring and not a great value. The $9.99 Chicago Dog is a straight ripoff.

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

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.
