Joe Palooka's

Map & Directions 3923 E. 120th Ave.
Thornton, CO 80233


Westword's Description

A Thornton staple for over two decades, Joe Palooka's has all the trappings of a good neighborhood bar: cordial waitstaff, reasonably priced drafts, a clean spot to rest your elbows, and plenty of TVs for game-watching. The strip mall-situated hangout looks small from the outside but opens up once you're inside with plenty of seating. Whether you're at a high-top table with a pitcher or bellied up to the giant horseshoe bar with a pint, the bartenders are always friendly and attentive. Mostly a drinking and pool-playing spot, Palooka's keeps the bar food to a minimum, with daily happy hours serving up free popcorn and hot dogs straight from the rotary cooker. The tin roof-lined interior is dimly lit, and patrons looking to grab a smoke can do so on the bar's small front patio.

    If you are looking for a fight, this is the place to be. Straight up Roadhouse style - minus Patrick Swayze.

    Play the skee-ball machine for free drinks. It pays for itself and then some if you do good, definitely worth the try.

  • Clinton M. on 08/29/13
