Lakewood, CO 80215
Since this funky neighborhood dive opens at 7 a.m. and has an early happy hour until 11 a.m. (and another one from 4 to 7 p.m.) every day of the week, Guido's Nickel attracts a fair amount of regulars who are serious about drinking. License plates from various states line one wall, while the black vinyl booths feel like they're at least three decades old. But part of the joint's charm is that it has a live-in, comfortable vibe with a fairly friendly set of folks who live in the area. While itâs a quaint spot to check out a game, Guido's Nickel also sports a pool table, an outdoor patio and a horseshoe pit.
