What with Air Force cadets and Colorado College co-eds on the prowl, 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; Phantom Canyon Brewing Company boasts a billiards hall with foosball as well as pool tables and, of course, craft brews on tap. On the less rowdy side, jazz aficionados will thrill to discover Motif, an intimate hideaway of a jazz club housed in a converted garage, as well as Deco Lounge in the Colorado Springs Fine Arts Center, where live combos perform for wine-sipping habitués on Friday nights.
The Broadmoor offers other options for an enjoyable night out. Many locals make the trek to the resort for sing-alongs with the ragtime pianist in The Golden Bee — cozy amid carved mahogany, brass fixtures and pewter flourishes — or for that matter to spend a swanky evening dining and dancing in the Five-Star Penrose Room .
