    Really cool bar. It was super chill in there too, not overcrowded or too noisy. Plus all the games were really fun and the drink I had there was sweet & cheap!!

    Ask the bartenders to make you a "Colfax Complex." It's like an Oedipal complex but it kills your liver and makes you want to take home nearby miscreants.

    Swig 40s of malt liquor while pumping quarters into arcade games, go wild with six lanes of skee-ball, get tipsy with giant Jenga on the patio, and pick your own jukebox tunes. Read more

    Like it's big brother (The 1-Up), The 2-Up has a great selection of classic (& new) arcade and pinball machines in beautiful shape. Come for the fun, stay for the forties!

    The 1Up bar is full of nostalgic arcade games, bring your coin collection and play the night away while enjoying adult cocktails and throwback pop-punk tunes.

    Concert venue is cool and all, and they've had some kick ass jam bands, but I miss just being able to stop in to play a couple quick games.

    I like this location more than the one in LODO. Cheap drinks and fun arcade games.

    Such a great alternative to 1up if they are busy! $5 drinks but games are .25 or .50. Typical Denver drink prices but awesome fun!

    Come for the $5 incredibly crappy drinks. Stay for the endless plaid shorts and other douchbaggery

    Good balance between live music and arcade. I'd come back for another show.

    it's basically a dive bar with video games. Not a criticism! Happy hour is all day on Sunday!

    Less crowded and more video game focused than the 1 up. Nice stuff.
