50 Best Bars in Colorado Springs

“For the first four years after moving to Colorado Springs, I never recognized what lovely little gem Marigold is. The owners offer a nice touch of warmth and hospitality, for what I thought was a quick visit for a glass of wine and raspberry cheesecake (a must try). I truly am appalled at the customer service and fantastic ambiance that the seating and bar area has to offer. The restaurant has a variety of French cuisine, with a great selection of wine and cocktails to choose from. I also appreciate Gus and his wife for truly making it a priority to appreciate their guests and take pride in the service they have to offer.”

“The food was absolutely amazing. Our server was on top of everything. Making sure we got everything we ordered, that it tasted great, and drink refills. We didn't have to ask for anything. We sat outside and the view was amazing. This was my first time and I can't wait to go back.”

“I was visiting and was told this was a good wine and wiskey place to check out. Let me tell you, I absolutely loved it. The atmosphere is perfect, its definitely unique inside, chill but classy. The drinks, apps and most of all, our waitress Amanda was amazing! If I'm ever back in CO, I will definitely be stopping by again.”

“Nice environment, very cool looking and clean inside, they even had some board games. It was very nice that it was all vegan. The food was good. The service was pretty quick even though they were short staffed and they were very friendly. I recommend this to anyone but especially vegans looking for healthy food while in CO Springs.”

“Shame & Regret! What can I say other than this is the spot you’ve been searching for! Monday night scotch flights with some amazing options that you can’t pass up. The staff is Too Shelf all day every day. We bring our whomever we can to get them to learn about an amazing spot they are too quick to pass up. Head Down the alley and don’t disappoint yourself and choose somewhere else to grab a Scotch, Whiskey, Bourbon, Cocktail… whatever it is you’re wanting. Even have a few awesome beers available that don’t disappoint. Matt has done something amazing with this spot, and we always have to come and see our favorite homie, Kentiya! Missed you tonight! Hah!”

“While not hidden, you feel as if you are walking up to a secret door, down a sidewalk alley. I cannot honestly say much about the inside, other than it was a bit confusing if you seat yourself or wait to be seated....but a staff member directed us in less than two minutes that we could pick our own spot on the patio. Low table, hightops and couches adorn this enclosed patio. Sadly the fire towers nor the fireplace worked the night we enjoyed this spot. The edamame should always be ordered spicy, alongside the mashi-mandu. I also liked the gogi lettuce wraps, but beware - they seem to be as messy as eatting wings! Extra water is not automatically placed on the table, but is brought in a beautiful glass decanter once you ask. From a sign I saw, live music is played here. Staff are friendly and the food is definitely worth going back for again and again.”

“My last big meal before heading back to the east coast- and definitely the right place to go for! Edelweiss was a classic German restaurant with select menu options- but all sounding delicious! All of our meals were fantastic and the selection of cakes for dessert too! Service was perfect for the setting, and the restaurant had a beautiful outdoor dining area, I’d definitely recommend on a nice day. Reservations are recommended if you’re going anytime in the evening as the restaurant certainly fills up quick.”

“I've been to the Venua at Almagre for two separate events in the past couple of months and honestly loved the layout of the space and the service. The entry with small bar is set up in such a way as to subtly control the crowd flow to the larger back rooms and allow people to grab a drink before they mingle. The most recent event I attended had a speaker at one end of the room, presenting to about 50 attendees set up at tables in a large, dispersed "U" shape. The acoustics were great and the layout worked very well for conversation among the group. I would definitely recommend this as a venue for hosting a small to moderate (100+) sized event.”

“If you're looking for a cozy and unique coffee shop in downtown Colorado Springs, The Perk Downtown is a must-visit. As a locally owned establishment, they offer a warm and welcoming atmosphere that makes it the perfect spot to relax and enjoy a cup of coffee. The shop features an impressive array of art work for sale from local artists, which adds to the charm of the place.One of the things that sets The Perk Downtown apart is the beautiful hand painted murals that adorn the walls. They are truly works of art and provide a feast for the eyes while you sip on your coffee. With two floors of seating, there is plenty of space to find a cozy nook or a spot to spread out and get some work done. But the real gem is the outdoor space on the top floor, complete with colorful iron bistro sets and a view of the mountains.Not only is the atmosphere at The Perk Downtown delightful, but the coffee is top-notch as well. They offer a variety of blends and brews to suit any taste, and their baristas are knowledgeable and friendly. Whether you're looking to catch up with friends or simply enjoy some quiet time alone, The Perk Downtown is the perfect spot to do so. I highly recommend checking it out!Dietary restrictions: They’re able to accommodate lactose intolerance.”

“Great bar that offers up a large selection of craft cocktails. They don’t offer food but there are plenty of places around that you can order form and bring into the Principal’s Office. Friendly and knowledgeable bartenders and cool themed atmosphere. An absolute must visit when in town.”

“The Rabbit Hole is such a wonderful place to dine. The atmosphere is amazing! The restaurant is decorated so cute. The entrance is so cute. You actually have to know where you're going. It's like you are going down to a subway station. Our waitress, Erica was amazing. One of our party wanted Ranch dressing. They don't have that, but they went next door to a neighboring restaurant and got him the dressing. The food was delicious.”

“We really wanted to try this place but they were closing in ten minutes. We were going to get our food to go but they were so sweet and insisted we stay and eat! Well, it was totally worth it! I had the chicken rosemary pot pie and my husband had the beef pot pie. Best pot pies ever! We took desserts to go. We had the lemon pie with blueberry compote and the bourbon chocolate pecan. Let's just say-don't skip on the dessert!”

“After being accommodated a few times to find just the right table....our server “Rowen” aimed to please! The service was over the top! She made suggestions and pretty much granted our every wish!! Our table of four came in with a bad attitude after having an awful UBER experience on the way to Prime 25! Rowen was quick to smile and change all of our negatives in to positives!! We were made to feel like VIPs and we all loved it!!”

“I loved singing karaoke in this bar I always have fun on stage and having a drink I like how they have basketball along with pool tables I would like to still sing at Buzzed Crow Bistro that used to be called Stones again but I think the audience at this bar was just the best nobody gave me angry looks everyone cheered at every song I did no booing at anybody it’s just great love about everyone in there”

“Staff were very friendly and superb at being helpful with menu items. I'm going to be honest normally when I get Mexican I fear for a stomach illness but Miguel did not disappoint. The portions were massive! Service from server and wait staff was astounding! The food was full of flavor and is making my mouth water just thinking about my next visit! The only local Mexican eatery I can trust!”

“Surprisingly good. I've walked by this place several times, thinking it wouldn't be worth the stop...I was wrong. It was an older crowd (not decrepit, but not 21), so it was a low key atmosphere. The bartender mixed great drinks, and though I didn't eat, whatever he was cooking smelled absolutely amazing...and it was made to order. Worth a stop!”

“You won't be disappointed. The staff is friendly and incredibly knowledgeable. The menu is amazing and they are able to make things to your liking. I'm coming back next time we're in CS. Get a bottle of bourbon to take home. It's a "have to" stop.”

“Drinks were unique. Can't say I loved the ones we ordered, but I would definitely give another shot with a different drink next time. Ambiance was really cool and they really captured the speak easy vibe. Service was great and it wasn't over crowded or too loud which was a plus for us. You can actually have a conversation over a pretty unique beverage.”

“We had a wonderful meal. The service was a bit slow at first (i think it was because we chose the bar area and current waiter was busy) but it changed quickly. Every wait staff that walked by us asked how things were and if we needed anything.Great service! Yummy drinks with local liquors and brews. We ended up leaving with several crowlers. Michael was a great server.”

“Happy Tap is one of the best hidden gems in the Springs. You always have the locals (true locals). Pets are welcome as long as they are friendly. Bring the family cause that's what this place reminds me of, a family. Lots of different beer on tap and almost always a food truck. They have accommodated parties with ease. If there is one tap room I could take people to, too really get that CO Springs feel it's Happy Tap.Kid-friendliness: Always kid friendly”

“Stopped here on a whim based on the name alone. So glad I did. The atmosphere here was amazing. Lovely little spot. The signature cocktails were so good. Had the alchemist and would definitely get it again. The Phish and chips were also really good. The fries might be some of the best fries I've ever had. Place was clean, staff was extremely attentive and friendly. I for sure recommend this place if you need a drink or two or want a quick bite to eat. You can't go wrong!”

“I'm so glad that the springs has Vultures. It's one of my favorite places to stop by. I've gone to so many shows here now not knowing what to expect and walking out with a new favorite artist. They have a great drink selection and their food is surprisingly delicious. I had their taco Tuesday special and Mac and cheese and both were shockingly good. Staff is great as well. Kylie is almost always there as well as the owner Aspen. Their new hire Eric seemed wonderful as well. Always a welcoming and fun environment.”

“Their draft vanilla oat milk latte is amazing! Their bowls are all delicious and the club scout is so good! The inside of this place has such a nice feel to it, you’ll want to hang out for awhile! Their outdoor patio is perfect for hanging out with friends.”

“My husband and I hit this up after visiting the other location, and honestly we still loved it! The theme when we visited was LOTR and OMG the drinks(and the staff) were amazing. If you like themed speakeasies, delicious drinks, and great atmosphere, this is the place for you.”

“First time here. Just moved and was looking for a local hangout. This place is a jem. They have poker and karaoke 2 of my favorite bar things. Bartender Michelle took very good care of me answering any question I had about drinks and amenities they have. I will definitely be back regularly.”

“There is a female waitress who is beyond rude. She made comments about my portion size (I was 9 months pregnant at the time), took food from the table my husband was actively eating, and nearly brought me an alcoholic beverage. Very disappointing considering it is a fairly expensive date night. Everything else is great, just be sure to not show up near closing time, order drinks listed on the menu, and eat before you go.”

“Justin and Sam were both delightful and highly knowledgeable of the lord of the rings which was the current theme. We enjoyed 4 rounds of drinks and the last two were based off their recommendations and enjoyed every one. 10/10 would recommend.”

“Ended up here because we needed a bar/hang out place open on a Monday near Carfree. The service by the staff was great! They were attentative and on point. We never ordered food, but the atmosphere was cool. Definitely a sports bar though. All of the walls were decorated with golf man trim and plenty of screens to enjoy any of the games that night.”

“They're Tuesday night steak special is the best deal in town. Their state guy really knows what he's doing, it's always tender and flavorful.My only complaint is that all the tables are the tall kind, and the music comes from a jukebox so you're more or less a the mercy of whoever pays.Kid-friendliness: This is a bar. Leave your kids at home.”

“My spouse and I go here often with friends. It has the perfect lounging vibe after a long week or for doing home work in the evenings. The staff is always excited to help educate people about the history and benefits of kava along with the other herbal beverages that provide an alternative to those who prefer not to drink. I've met some really cool people here, both as employees and as customers here. I wish a place like this had existed when I was in college or high school. It is the perfect hang out spot!”

“Best dive bar ever. The music is great, but it's the people who make the place. To Tim H below, guys who have their profile pic taken in a black tuxedo probably won't like it here. To the Mill Hill staff, keep doing what you're doing!”

“Super cool concept. We loved trying food from the different venders. Not the biggest fan of the Mac and cheese from the bbq place. The one from ivywild kitchen looked better. Also they put bacon on my side order of Mac and cheese. I don't eat bacon and this was not in the description so I had to pick it all off :( otherwise we loved it here! Will definitely return to try more food and drinks.”

“Very cool place!This is my first time visiting, it's so laid back and welcoming. We were greeted by an adorable "bar dog". No, not the local drunk, an actual dog that was sweet and made the place very endearing. The decorations have a kitchy local feel like you're relaxing in your own living room. There was a local band playing 80s and 90s hits and really made the night fun. There are 2 pool tables and darts inside. Outside is a nice seating area with horseshoes and cornhole for some light competitive entertainment. It doesn't get more home-y than this, you gotta check it out for yourself.”

“I LOVED MY WEDDING DAY!!!!!!!!! I just had my wedding here at The Venue at Almagre on November 5th, 2022. I want to give a shout out to my wonderful wedding planners. The day of my wedding planner Abigail was so sweet and on top of it. I thought that I was going to be so stress but on my day Abigail made it go as smooth as can be. She keep checking in with my whole bridal party and my self + husband to make sure we were good or needed something. I love the decor, food, and the DJ. I loved everything about my wedding day.I had such a great experience. I recommend going with the Venue at Almagre! The only thing I didn't like was that the bridal suite seemed crammed with everyone's stuff. I think that maybe if the suite had some type of armoire so that when getting pictures taken in the bridal suite you don't have all the stuff all over the place. Other than that I had the most magical day!!!”

“Randomly walked by and was drawn in by the entry which beckoned you underground. We'd already been to the Rabbit Hole so another windowless hidden bar was seeming normal. The drinks are fun, tropical, as you would guess. I had the dragonfruit and enjoyed very much. My friend didn't care for her drink and they gladly replaced at no charge. Fun vibes, many different types of sitting areas around two bars and many table and couch areas, so you can choose the ambience you'd like to imbibe in.Recommend a stop here. Crowd was mostly Gen Z with a pinch or Millenial, but it meshed.”

“GREAT BURGERS. Was told to go here by the concierge at my hotel, he called it a "dive bar" with great food. I concur with the great food, but I wouldn't call it a dive bar. It's got a bit of a dive bar aesthetic if you gentrified a dive bar. That being said, it's a fun place to go with a good sized bar, table seating, a small outdoor area, and a pool table. The bartender was great and the burger, seriously, the burger, was bomb. I highly suggest you get the EAST COAST burger. I've never had a pastrami sandwich with a burger patty before and I was astounded at how good it was. I wish I lived nearby so I could get it more often. Reasonable prices.”

We’re older & for our date night, enjoyed the hip vibe, eclectic crowd, decor, music & unbelievable staff that took time to answer our ?’s and really interact - so enjoyable inside & out on the swings!

Cool bartenders made fantastic happy hour papaya margaritas and the food, OmGG -Incredible flavor profiles (no wonder they’ve won so many awards) Being our first time we sampled.

“The Hotel Bar is one of the best places to meet friends/family and dine or have a drink. STEPHEN was our favorite server. He is one of the most attentive and knowledgable servers at the Hotel Bar. Definitely ask to have him wait on you when you go. Also, JULIAN (server at The Hotel infinity pool) is equally attentive and knowledgable. Ask for his section, and ask for him take care of you at the pool. He and Stephen are both great assets to the Broadmoor. You’ll have a great stay!”

First time in December they had karaoke night and this trip it was relatively chill with march madness on. Im glad I found this spot in December. Beers are great. The staff is great.

“What every other happy customer said...Pool League on Thursdays so dont go on Thurs if your trying to get a table, but its not packed so still come and get a drink cuz they have darts and multiple TVs for sports. They also do sports brackets so come place a bet so I can collect your money when I win ;) Bartenders are great and please if you come to Pints give them a good tip. Ive been a bartender and make sure you tip them. They arent millionaires but provide a top notch service. Its a dive bar so dont ask for a martini or anything that will get you laughed outta the bar. All good people trying to relax and have a good time. Dont bring bad vibes, they aren't welcome. Everyday patrons have the bartenders back so don't be an idiot. Karaoke night is prime. I never sing but one time I got too drunk and sang horribly, patrons still singing along with me, great bar in my opinion and Ive been to bars in 12 countries.”

“Huge fan of arcade bars, and we happen to find this one while walking the streets of old Colorado city! We had to stop in and play a few games, really loved the ski ball and the old school Galaga! I've been going to the original supernova in downtown Colorado Springs for a while, so its cool to see they have branched out! They have a ton of drink options, and well versed bartenders, but the games make it a fun and inviting atmosphere!”
