The 1up-LoDo was recommended to my co-workers and I only my recent trip to Denver on business. After previewing the place on Yelp I wasn't sure if the vibe here might've been what exactly I was looking for but I went with my common rule...More

Full bar with decent specials and beers. Lots of arcade games and ski ball too. It can get pretty crowded which makes it tough to play the game you want.

Great place to stop downtown. Beer isn't overpriced. Then you get to play the arcade games you loved as a kid. Tough not to like. Great place to have fun before or after Rockies game.

We stopped in because a friend who lives here said it was fun. The drink prices weren't bad, but all the games are $.25!! Tons of different games, pinball, etc. It was a nice break from the day and fun to act like kids again....More

It's pretty dead if you go there during the day on a weekday so it might be appropriate. I guess it really just depends on what you deem appropriate. It is a bar so the adults there are going to say and do adult things. Less... More

With 14 beers on tap, a Hall-of-Fame of vintage cans, a solid selection of 40 oz. bottles of malt liquor, full bar and delicious food, we have something for everyone. Happy Hour is Monday - Friday from 3:00 pm-7:00 pm. Our other location is at 717 E. Colfax Avenue located in Denver's Capitol Hill neighborhood.
