You won’t be far from the bars and clubs action at The Broadmoor — the Air Force cadets and Colorado College coeds are nearby and downtown Colorado Springs is nightlife central. Jack Quinn Irish Alehouse and Pub is a blast for traditional Celtic seisiúns and sing-alongs as well as trivia contests. Just a few miles away, a former elementary school has been converted into an outstanding facility that houses Colorado Springs' own Bristol Brewery, as well as a great bakery, butcher shop for sandwiches and snacks, and a unique wine bar and coffee establishment called The Principal’s Office (once upon a time, it was one). There’s an art school, bike shop and, on Wednesday nights in summer, an outdoor farmers’ market, too.
On the less rowdy side, jazz aficionados will be thrilled to discover Motif, an intimate hideaway of a jazz club housed in a converted garage with live jazz every Thursday through Saturday night. If you’re not sure where to go or when, just ask the concierge at the Forbes Travel Guide Five-Star hotel for details about the most happening areas and let him know what kind of entertainment you seek.
