Barker Lounge *

Friendly Denver bar for locals and visitors
The Barker Lounge is a friendly neighborhood bar. While it was voted in 2007 as the best Gay & Lesbian bar, the owners stress that ALL are welcome here, so it can be a great place for bringing a straight companion. Companions of the canine kind are also always welcomed. Daily drink specials and Denver Bronco games are also a great way to get to make new friends at The Barker Lounge.

    Not impressed
    Walking in the door with my girlfriends and it smells like a restroom (urine?). Total turn-off, but we went up and ordered a round to give it a try. Cute bartender, but many tables had empty glasses and the place isn't very clean. Bartender seemed more into himself than taking care of customers. Never saw him leave behind the bar, and we just didn't get a good vibe. Maybe just an off night, but in my opinion there's better (cleaner, funner and more friendly) bars for the gay community in Denver.

    Not much improved
    Used to go into the old Barker on Broadway occasionally, which was ok. The new location is not doesn't seem very clean and clientele isn't what I was expecting to see. I don't think I'll be there again, there's some new places that are better. They do have a couple of cute bartenders, but the neighborhood isn't what I was hoping for...maybe not the best place for newbies. Sorry, just my opinion!
