I recently saw a write up for The Boca Room in the Denver Daily News, a small free paper in Denver which somehow manages to have more typos than my website.
They highlighted the Boca Room as their featured business on July 10.
Quickly skimming the article, I paused at the line “Steak Dinner for $5″, and made a mental note to frequent them soon. True to the paper’s prophecy, last Friday night I enjoyed a small steak, potatoes, veggies, and bread for $5, complimented by $1 PBRs and $2 wells. There’s other dinner specials, and my food was prepared well, not just “bar food”.
All this in a hip and funky environment. However rather than the stuffy clubs in other trendy areas offering similar music and ambience, The Boca’s patrons seemed relaxed and personable, making it a more “neighborhood bar” atmosphere.
I ate dinner early, and spoke briefly with Dave Mot, the owner, who has been working 15 hours a day since opening, and complimented him on the groovy furniture and warm colors, and vowed to return soon.
This place is definitely a great addition to Colfax, and this type of independent business is sure to improve the reputation of Colfax, yet keep it fresh.
At Colfax and Marion, they’re open Tuesday through Saturday.
