Skylark Lounge live music in Denver

That place in Denver is the Skylark Lounge. This bar is like a comfy old chair that you don’t just plop down on, but settle into. You have to ease yourself into the atmosphere. The dimly lit, one-room bar has glimmering bottles lined up against walls filled with nostalgic posters.

A picture of Rita Hayworth stares down at an out-of-order ’50s cigarette machine, offering up packs for 35 cents (once again, I stress out-of-order).

Add to the atmosphere a friendly, no-frills staff and great drink prices, and you’ve got the bar of bars in Denver.
