The Compound

Map & Directions 145 Broadway
Denver, CO 80203
  • Patio/Sidewalk Dining


Westword's Description

Open from 7 a.m. to 2 a.m. seven days a week, 365 days a year, the Compound's corner-bar (and gay-bar) legacy is just that: a twenty-plus-year run as a drinking place that barely closes. Weekday patrons start rolling in from hospital night shifts to take advantage of the early opening (and a 7 a.m. happy hour), while rowdier nighttime crowds looking to dance come later to shut the bar down. Bold purple walls and black plastic-tiled floors run throughout the front room, where a small bar services pool- and darts-playing patrons and those looking to socialize in the newly renovated tall vinyl booths. Just through a cavernous opening sits a giant wooden dance floor with a DJ booth perched high above, and Friday nights find the space wall-to-wall with sweaty bodies filing in from a line that often forms around the south Broadway building. Just outside of the dance room's glass doors is a smoking patio, heated in the fall and winter months for year-round use. The only odd accoutrement of the Compound is its wall of lockers for personal item storage.

    The name always reminds me of that guy in Texas who set fire to his cult. Got here after gay bar crawl and there was some FURIOUS dancing. Other than that...it's all a blur. Anyone wanna chime in?

    Just make sure you know they will not honor gift certificates that you have purchased with no expiration date. Manager is less the pleasant.
