Worst Daytime Bar experience ever! – I walked here with my fiance and entered the completely empty bar at approximately 3:15 pm today (Tuesday). The bartender (manager?) was sitting by himself as we walked in. Today is a sunny day, and I am sure to have a slight case of sunburn due to my lack of using sunblock. However as we sat at the bar, the bartender, a middle aged fellow most likely of Greek persuasion, first asked to see my ID. Now being a bar manager myself I have no issue with that. I politely provided it to him. Keeping in mind that I am 42 years old, he returned my ID to me and said he was uncomfortable with serving me. He poured my fiance a glass of water, and after listening to my request for a beer, he again said I did not look right, asked me if I had been out drinking today, and refused to serve me (for the record, I had not been out drinking at all, and would have completely understood if I had). I told him that was fine and walked out of the empty establishment. I will never set foot in that place again. I am extremely disappointed in the complete lack of customer service and encourage everyone to voice this to the ownership to show exactly why people do not go there during the day.

Excellent Neighborhood Bar – Perhaps the best bar on East Colfax. A quiet and intimate atmosphere with a diverse clientele and excellent bartenders. The owner Pete, a dour but friendly Greek man, buys the first shots and gives a rose to all the ladies who come in the door, often hitting on them in a very charming and non-threatening way. He also keeps the bums and derelicts of East Colfax out, giving the P.S. Lounge a relative atmosphere of class in one of Denver's sleaziest neighborhoods. Most of the customers are locals there for a quiet night out, and raucous parties or fights are rarely seen. The drinks are standard in both price and strength. The bartenders are both beautiful and brainy, making them a pleasure to interact with. It's a cash-only bar (it is still East Colfax, after all), so don't bother bringing your credit card. Pizza can be bought from the adjacent restaurant, and there is a pool table and jukebox - on the point of the jukebox, it's one of the worst I've ever seen, loaded with utterly standard and uninteresting fare, though nowhere's perfect.
This unassuming Colfax Avenue dive is one of Denver's best jukebox joints. – In Short
A small bar, the lounge shares its building with Enzo's Pizza and its parking lot with Tommy's Thai. Inside, the bar is narrow, with booths against one wall, the bar against the other, and there's a small room with a pool table. The walls are adorned with pictures of patrons, and by the door stands the all-important jukebox, filled with artists such as Prince, Presley, Sinatra, Dino, Madonna, Social Distortion and Johnny Cash.
The Hawaiian Star – The PS has long since been sans-Crystal, but the good bartenders remain. Rachel brings them in, Whitney remembers all their names and what they drink. Anika, well is an enigma unto herself. I suppose Pete only hires the dazzling beauties, and some, like Whitney, have brains as well. Come see this hidden gem!
Ehhh.. – This place is alright.... Kind of like your grandmother's den in the 70's with your white trash cousins behind the bar.
