Incredibly disappointed – First off, no, there's no smoking. Ok, so that's how it is pretty much anywhere now. Second, the show started almost a half hour late. I'm sorry, what's so hard about getting a half dozen geriatric drag queens to start their show on time? Oh yeah.... It might be that they're older than Moses and can't read a clock to know when they're supposed to show up. Big.... Big.... BIG waste of time. Wretched lip synching. Bartender is tidy with the pour. More soused patrons than chairs. We were really looking forward to some hilarity and entertainment but ended up walking out after 3 acts.
Denver's self-described "friendliest" gay bar features a carousel theme and a neighborhood feel. – In Short
As gay bars go, BJ's is as close to a neighborhood joint as it gets, with groups of regulars filling the tables on any given night. The decor includes miniature carousel horses in nooks and crannies and a few full-sized on the stage. Also taking the stage are drag queens and cabaret-style shows, male strippers and karaoke singers. In the back of the bar is a popular sand volleyball court.
Very GOOD local restaurant and bar. – Great food/ pleasant/neighborhood/ bar/restaurant. Very friendly patrons and staff Decent, fun folks to have a beer with, grab one of Joe's great dinners and chill. Specials /american food menu/ combo of mom's home cooking/lots of little surpises on various days and seasons /Monday's are usually spagetti night (call) with excellent al'dente pasta/rich meat tomaoe sauce/salad/french bread.

The bar is fun with the usual games, including darts. A sunken and curved bar has all the fixings and the bartenders are attentuive and generous. Ther are many nights of various entertainment.

Oh, I almost forgot, outside the small restaurants glass windows on Thursday they have volleyball! from about 7:00 on, Lot's of nice eye-candy!

Denver's Showplace For Drag Queen Entertainment! – The drag shows on Friday and Saturday evenings are top notch and are usually staged for the purpose of raising funds for various charitable causes. The staff, entertainers and regular customers are very friendly and welcoming to newcomers and visitors.
The Best Bar intown – This bar has to be the friendliest place in town. And the owner Bob is a gem to the community.
Super Time – I had a great time there this past Tuesday. I was in town on business and made the mistake of going to 60 South on Monday night- what a bore. But this place was fun on Tuesday night. The strippers were all very good looking and really worked hard for their tips. It wasn't real croweded, but that was fine with me - more attention from the guys.
