Cheap booze, nice staff. Usually close to empty though. This is great for a friendly social time but not a good place to looking for a new spouse.
Front Range is sadly underrated for their wonderful marriage of very very good food and quality music. No words can describe their delectable meals. And whoever books their bands really know what they're doing because we've seen some great acts come through here, most of them traveling from afar. Not sure why they advertise it as "southern rock" because musicians have come from Philly, Boston, etc., and have a wise variety of soulful sounds. If you want excellent food from a restaurant that has great taste in music, this is the place to be.
Never will go back to Bambinos since the owners did not renew the lease on La Creperie, one of downtowns oldest remaining quality eateries. Will not patronize their hamburger joint effort, The Skirted Hiefer. Nothing like adding one more burger joint to an already saturated burger market in this town, but hey, good luck on your half thought out business plan. The pizzas and "Italian" food at Bambinos were always mediocre at best, much, much better choices in the town. Arrivederci!
The Carey On is my favorite country bar! They have a great dance floor, fantastic music, and the staff is friendly and fun. I often go by myself, and I always feel safe and have a great time. I love seeing the owner LeShawn and DJ Johnny Law wandering through the crowd making everyone feel welcome. I love this place!
Beer is good but service usually really sucks. I avoid the overpriced food and the owner. I do like the diverse guest tap offerings but they too are overpriced. Have a couple cold Flos and go down the road to more friendly people.
snooty pricks, overpriced beer, lame ass way overpriced food, and did I mention snooty pricks? will never go back
Trinity has great beers! and the guest taps are bar none. However, the owner is not a very great guy, I have seen him stumbling drunk in the bar harassing other patrons and kicking people out that have done no wrong. He will try to pick fights with others who aren't in 100% compliance with his philosophy on beer. I have brought a lot of friends here and have never been so disappointed in an owner and a business. I really LOVED this brewery but the lack of professionalism and poor service from the bar staff has stopped me from coming here.
Great bands/music but the bartenders and most of the waitresses have a bad attitude and service is very slow. Especially on Thursday, Eric the Thursday night bartender sucks in so many ways, he's slow (I'm tired from my full time job he complains!), and Eric is a total pig towards women. Bartender Shea on Tuesdays and Waitress Jennifer could use an attitude tune up too. Chad, who claims to be the owner seems disconnected from what's going on.
Wonderful staff members include waitresses Annie & Mary, both JJ's and Zack from the kitchen.
I love this bar! My meet my husband here a year ago. The owner is awesome and make everyone feel welcome. She allowed my husband and I to get married at the bar. We always feel welcome and love the live bands that they have every Friday night.
As an Irish American I prefer Quinn's, but am really offended when Italians come in when I am drinking a Harp, and they order a Peroni...it offends my tastes and my heritage, and I demand reparations and casino rights on Monument creek.
A Hogan is a traditional home style of the Navajo people pronounced hooghan in Navajo. The Navajo Hogan in the north of Colorado Springs is of this style, and thus named for it. Stop inside and you can see the original “Hogan” plus the additional “Hogan” that was added late. So Real Navajo Dale get over it because there is something Navajo about this place.
In response to KP Reynolds. I am the owner and operator of Bricks Sports Bar & Grill. I will state absolutely that we DO NOT refill bottles and I resent the implication and the method in which this tripe is being voiced. I am often at Bricks and I will certainly take the time to address your accusations in person should you care to. Simply call 638-2022 to set up a time to meet. I am more then happy.

Went there with friends in July (2013) and ordered call liquor. What we got was definitely not the liquor we ordered and we're all well enough acquainted with that particular brand to know exactly what it isn't. Double-checked our bill and we still got charged for call so the bartender heard us correctly. One of us was watching the pour and the right bottle was used so they must be refilling call liquor bottles with cheap liquor. We just paid and left. No sense on coming back to a place that cheats us. I wonder if the law knows about this illegal practice?
I'm currently enjoying $1.50 drafts and .50 wings. (Great wings) Can't beat it.
I love this bar...always something fun going on and great food. Poker, Karaoke, Pool and Darts. Great improvement on food, atmosphere. I got a fat ribeye steak, baked potato, corn and toast....$9.00 and you can take it to go! Loved it!
We are all Americans at this point. If someone is Irish they might like the drink as much as an Indian, or a Scot or a Kraut. Take responsibility for yourself and don't blame a bunch of folks having a drink and good meal in a place that has such amazing architecture, of which you should be proud.
I feel sorry for you and those with the problem mentioned although this has nothing to do with this venue, being a drunk is a choice this is not the 1800"s when the Indians were exploited. Help work with your people to honor themselves, no one is forcing anyone, the word Navajo in these times is used w/o prejudice .
Slow service. Unfriendly.
Slow service. Bartender busy talking with friends. Not friendly unless you are a regular
Unfriendly atmosphere. Slow and poor service. Feels like only certain people are welcome. There was sweet 16 birthday party going on. Not recommended for a good time
