Westword's Description

Step a few feet inside Sancho's Broken Arrow and there's no mistaking that you're in a Grateful Dead­centric, tie­dyed hippie hangout. Live bands stake out Sancho's on Mondays, but jukebox jockeys normally take care of the music. The jukebox is stocked with enough Dead to last for weeks. Every so often, though, you need a break from Jerry and company, and there are a few other artists sprinkled in ­­ cats like Leon Russell and the Talking Heads, as well as jam­-centric acts like Widespread Panic, String Cheese Incident and Gov't Mule. The place is packed before and after shows at the Fillmore Auditorium next door; otherwise, the vibe is easygoing, roomy and kind.

    Perfect place to grab a drink before or after a show at the Fillmore, or stay and meet/make friends!

    I've been here twice and it was packed. I am told it's not normally like that but I thought it was great. Genuinely nice people, great pool games, and cheap beer as far as I remember. When you leave and are looking for some greasy food, there is usually a gyro stand outside waiting to serve you.

    Best bar on Colfax! Especially if you like the dark kind with cheap drinks and bar games, this is for you!

    This place should be called "Sanchos Broken Dreams."

    Don't wear flip flops, they get stuck to the floor and make it hard to dance!
