The 1Up - Colfax
Denver, CO 80203
- Daily 3pm-2am
A year after opening the 1Up, the hot arcade/bar in LoDo, owner Jourdan Adler took over the former home of Peteâs Monkey Bar and put his second bar, The 1Up - Colfax (originally the 2UP), in its place. The The 1Up - Colfax might be smaller than its downtown sister, but thereâs still room enough for more than 35 vintage arcade games, three lanes of Skee-Ball and nine pinball games. The barcade concept has worked quite well in other parts of the country, and Adler is proving that Denverites fully embrace it as well. While the 1Up - Lodo allows kids during the day, The 1Up - Colfax is strictly a 21-plus spot.
Tips from foursquare
Come for the $5 incredibly crappy drinks. Stay for the endless plaid shorts and other douchbaggery
Less crowded and more video game focused than the 1 up. Nice stuff.
Like it's big brother (The 1-Up), The 2-Up has a great selection of classic (& new) arcade and pinball machines in beautiful shape. Come for the fun, stay for the forties!
Such a great alternative to 1up if they are busy! $5 drinks but games are .25 or .50. Typical Denver drink prices but awesome fun!
BB always checks ID. No matter how many times you talk to him.
