Westword's Description

After a long run, Cricket on the Hill closed in 2008, and the place was sadly missed by denizens who frequented the spot. Fortunately, the Gabor's is still up and running next door -- and chances are good you'll probably run into someone there who used to hang out at the Cricket. This Capitol Hill mainstay has pretty much everything a neighborhood dive could ever want, from cheap drinks to cool bartenders to a decent set of regulars. Plus it sports one of the city's best jukeboxes, which is free most of the time and is loaded with a kitchen sink of artists and styles, from Tom Waits and Lou Reed to the Ramones and the Clash to Miles and Monk.

    One of my favorite bars in Denver. Great dive-y atmostphere where you go slide in to one of the booths and listen to the best jukebox of any bar in the galaxy. They usually have tons of prepaid credits in the jukebox so you can go up and choose songs from all kinds of artists like Johnny Cash, Arcade Fire, Wilco, My Bloody Valentine, Muddy Waters, etc. Love this place.

    Come hang with Danni bar-tending and Erica running the floor. Exceptional ladies and an exceptional time. :)

    Go on a Monday and hang with Dano! She will love your brains out. And don't forget to spin disc number 99 in the juke box!
