The Bar Car is the only locally owned neighborhood bar on Denver's busy Colorado Boulevard between I-25 and I-70. Owned and operated by Jeremy Matzke (a.k.a. The Drink Slinger) and Victor H. Muñiz, the Bar Car boasts comfort, fun, reasonably priced drinks, and strong community partnerships. Upon first glance, the Bar Car reminds you of a train’s bar car of yesteryear. The old world decor, with oil paintings, dark mahogany shading, and multiple brass chandeliers, returns customers to the time where getting a drink was a communal routine and one can always expect a welcoming air.
Clean with good music. This bar offers inexpensive drinks with staple comfort food options like burger, fries, and bbq plate. Often visited by Congress Park locals, this is a great place to hang out on any afternoon. The restrooms are also clean and I love the industrial look of it.

Excellent dive bar with incredibly friendly staff and patrons! We ended up here for the tri-tip cookout they have every first Friday of every month-delicious! The fries are like nothing I’ve ever tried before, like fried mash potatoes yum. The vibe inside is so cool and the drinks were excellent too. A gem!

Super crowded, but was able to find a table. Not a young adult atmosphere, more classic bar atmosphere. Staff was super friendly & helpful. Drinks were strong & really good! Heavy pour, which is what we are all looking for! Haha prices were decent. Vintage vibe atmosphere. Great for bar hopping.
