I have been looking forward to checking this place out since I moved here but have to say I will probably never go back, despite the big names. The comedians were so-so, but that's a chance you take when seeing an unknown, so no problem with that. The issue is the two-drink minimum. Having promised our large group a discount on our first drink, they then told us the discount was only good for the first 30 minutes after doors opened and refused to honor it (which they had neglected to tell us). I figured no big deal, I would just order beer rather than an expensive cocktail. Come to find out that not only do they have the WORST beer list I have ever encountered with nearly no selection (I am including dive bars in this), but they are outrageously priced at $5-6 even for domestics like Bud Light and Coors. The waitresses continually interrupted our laughing to hassle us (not ask, but actually hassle) about our second drinks and lectured members of our group in loud voices about the two drink requirement when we told them we weren't ready yet for our second (most of us still had half a beer left as she could plainly see). Honestly, I normally would buy more than two drinks on a night out anyway, but I was so fed up with the hassling, prices and terrible selection, we ended up leaving early. I agree that sometimes you pay more for the experience, but believe me, there are much better venues in Denver if you'd like to see a good show that actually appreciate their customers. At one point during the show the performer read off customer comment cards, one of which suggested they lower the drink prices (so clearly I'm not the only one who feels this way). The performer then told us to "[--] Ourselves." Nice.
