Had a great time! – Just happened to stop in over the weekend. What a great place. The place was packed with Iowa Hawkeye fans cheering for their team. The service was great, the beer was cold. The bartenders were great. Will be first stop next time I we're back in Denver.
Laaaaaaaaame – $1 you call it Thursdays are hideous. If all you care about is getting drunk cheaply, then by all means, this place is for you....granting you can get to the ridiculously over crowded bar. It smells like beer and urine and it takes about an hour to get across the bar. I've only been there Thursday nights, so I really can't comment on any other time there, but I hate it with a burning passion...
WOW – I love the fact that they occasionally have people monitoring the bathrooms. They only have them when they are really busy. Typically restaurants hire these people for customer service purposes and that has nothing to do with how many "stars" they feel they are rated. Another reason why restaurants/bars have bathroom attendants is to help keep the peace. They help prevent graffiti, fights, and more importantly drug use! Tipping is optional, if you don't have the money or you don't feel like tipping - Don't tip. Most bars make last call to give customers notice that the bar is closing and to remind you to close your tab, gather your belongings, and to use the bathroom if you need to. By law, they have to get everyone out of the building or they get in trouble.
great atmoshphere, bad service – Great to watch sports, join the college scene on Thursday nights (and cheap drinks!), but poor service from servers and managers. Some of the bartenders are pretty cool, but mostly average. The only thing that makes this place stand out is that it's a pretty chill place. The party-goers are friendly and the scene is anti-poshy. hooray!
Great Sports Bar – The SC is a great place to watch football of any kind in a passionate and energetic atmosphere. In no way are you forced to have a Broncos jersey to enter the door. Fans of all shapes, ages and jersey colors go here. The location is right in LODO and a few blocks from coors field. The food is surprisingly good and I highly recommend any sports fan on a diet to try their version of the Philly Steak sandwich.. :)
Overall it is the best sport bar in Denver, hands down.
Best Spot to Watch College Football – The sports column is a great place to watch college football. The atmosphere is fantastic. The fans are passionate, and best of all, the food and drink is always good...
The next best thing to getting tickets to the big game. – In Short
This place is one big room crammed with boisterous fans. Big-screen TVs flicker everywhere except the bathrooms. The bar serves a full menu, including burgers and other usual bar favorites, but many people come just for the atmosphere on big-game days. Customers don jerseys and wear their hearts (and spilled ketchup) on their sleeves. Beer is always available, of course, and can be enjoyed on the patio upstairs during spring and summer.
great place – This is a great sports bar. Good food, good atmosphere. They have great chicken nachos. The drink specials are worth checking out.
Sports Fan – With a new head cook and lots of new waitstaff, the Sports Column has come a long way. Its a great place to meet new people while enjoying your favorite game. Just ask and they will put your game of choice on any of the many tvs. If you are a sports fan, this is the place to be at in Denver.
Stacked Results – Don't pay too much attention to the nominations for best sports bar in denver. I've seen the GM hand out the nomination ballots by the stack to staff members and have them fill them out and send them in. I wouldn't be suprised if he has done the same to some of the ratings and reviews here on CitySearch as well. The place seems to be hit and miss on everything but the service at the bar. The food can be excellent one time and undercooked the next and they seem to change their specials and events on a whim. My buddies and I walked in one time saw a sign for a special and the manager looked right at us and said they didn't have it. Weak customer relations.
