I was never more offended than I was on Saturday Night 06/19/10. I had actually went to this bar the opening weekend and had a really good time. So as I had a few friends who were coming up from Pueblo we decided to go to Copperhead Road. We arrive around 8:30 p.m.. Parking was starting to fill up as it had the first time I had been there. I was telling my friends about the seating they had around the bar. We first took a tour of the bar and then decided to get a drink and find seats. I was so surprised when I saw the employees literally kicking paying customers out of their seats. No telling how long they had been there or how much money they had already spent, just to get kicked out of your seat and basically told to stand or pay yet another minimum of $65.00 to have a reserved table to relax. I was handed a business card and told to call this women who was roaming around somewhere to request a table that I would have to pay for their cheapest bottle which was $65.00. Every single table in the placewas put on reserve. Not only did they kick people off the seats around the bar but there were people sitting at tables who were asked to pay or move. The bartender told me the only "free" seating was out on the smoking patio. Are these people for real. First you pay a $5.00 cover then $65.00 just to sit down. This is so wrong on so many levels. For one thisng this place is not that special. A person can go to a more popular place in Denver-Coyote Ugly-and not get treated this way. There was no apparent event going that evening either. This is insane buiness. I did order one cocktail and noticed that not a single table was being sat at. I would have spent a minimum of $65.00 in their bar had I been given the chance to sit down and relax. It's one thing to walk into a crowded bar and have to wait for a seat but to have to pay for seating how rude. I gave them one star but they really don't even deserve that. There were 5 people in my party. If we all would have spent $65.00 they would have made more had seating been an option. As it was all they got from our group was the cover per person and the revenue from one cocktail. Shame on them.
