The largest gay club in Colorado Springs, and one of the largest in the state, The Underground
(110 N. Nevada Ave., 719-578-7771) occupies a historic building in the center of downtown and really comprises three distinct spaces in one. The main floor houses a friendly, laid-back pub with pool tables, darts, and games (different theme nights feature karaoke, poker, bingo, and pub trivia). A flight of stairs leads down to the impressive nightclub area, with a large dance floor and a first-rate sound system. And finally there's a rooftop bar and patio with great views of downtown. This impressive club with multiple spaces to hang out in also has a kitchen that turns out pub fare and Mexican specialties, from Thai chicken pizzas to spicy green chile stew to smoked turkey sandwiches. For whatever Colorado Springs lacks in its number of gay bars, this impressive and handsomely designed gay entertainment complex definitely makes up for it.
Other gay bars in Colorado Springs include Club Q, on the city's east side, and the Bijou Bar and Grill.
