Right in the center of Colorado Springs. Nice to get some booze or just hang out a bit. Good music to dance to and as you can see on the picture....they've got pitchers! (penny-pitchers on thursdays by the way!!)
Dress Code: None
Tequila's is a great place for the younger old people to go (25-40+). 21's are allowed too, as well as older people.
Live music, dancing, alcohol, smoke... the usual. Never been inside, but get there early because the lines get long.
Dress Code: I don't think they care much. Wear clothes. You know, if you don't want a bunch of guys coming on to you, don't wear transparent clothing. If you're fine with guys drooling, wear what you want, but don't complain.
Downtown COS has many restaurants of different types. Along a street called Tejon, the center of downtown COS, you will find numerous restaurants to fit your taste. A very lively city, COS's downtown is very much a part of the natives' lives. Jack Quinn's is an excellent and authentique Irish pub-style restaurant, and there are various other bars along the same street. Also there are bars and nightclubs scattered about the city. Unfortunately, I have no car so don't know where they are.
Jack Quinn's is a very friendly place, with live music, many time Irish music, and genuine Irish food. Not to mention Guinness and Harp's on tap, plus many others.
Dress Code: Not too skanky. Not to posh. However you want, really.
I was staying at the Sheraton for a weekend conference. That Friday evening I decided to go see what the city looked like. My Taxi arrived and I asked him 'Where is a good place to go sing?' He took me to this bar with a funny yellow upside-down BAR sign. When I went in, the karaoke was going and it looked like everyone was having a great time. The music sounded great, so I grabbed me a beer and a karaoke book and joined in. Had a Blast, and closed down the bar. I think the place was called Robin Hood or something like that. It was on Nevada Ave.
Would recommend that place to anybody.
Dress Code: very casual
If you looking for night clubs, then come to S. Tejon Street between E. Bijou Street and E. Pikes Peak Ave, where a bunch of night clubs and bars are located.
Nive, little Irish Pub in the center of downtown Colorado Springs. Good beer and there's live music on several days of the week.
Dress Code: none
