Best dive bar ever! – Honestly, what to review. Good bar, live music, cheap drinks.....what else matters. It's a dive bar!
This den is a popular destination for live music and a dose of dive culture. – In Short
The place is tiny, with a nice bar located in the center of the room--within arms reach of patrons and players. If the band is willing to turn down to a reasonable volume, a seat at the bar is perfect. The Lair presents a schedule of national acts that are a thrill to see in such a small setting. Hard rock, punk and various forms of alt-country and alt-rock are the mainstays here.
A perfect dive – This has for years been the best dive in Denver (and I've been to just about all of 'em). To me this is THE dive to end them all and I always loved the transition from bleary-eyed old men to punk rock sneer that came with dusk. The drinks are cheap, the bartenders are just what you'd expect (a bit surly but efficient). I never came here for the music personally, I came for those hazy old Denver afternoons when the hustlers, homeless and Capitol Hill hipsters wandered by on the sidewalk outside and I could get more than a little stewed watching it. I live in New York now, but I still have a soft spot for the Lair (one of the few places I miss in the now sterile corporate wasteland that Denver has become).
