Four Winds Bar
One of the more bustling bars in Denver, Four Winds rarely sees regulars. The bar is a common meeting place to comers and goers, traders, smugglers and businessmen involved with imports and exports. It’s proximity to the railway as well as the roads coming in from the east make it a popular spot for a lot of travelers.
The bar sits on the intersection between two busy streets and has two entrances. One above on the overstreets, and another on the understreets. The bottom floor is typically home to dancing, drinks and the denizens of Denver who prefer not to be noticed by local law enforcement. From the balconies on the top floor, patrons can view the dancing and drinking, though a dress code of “don’t look like street garbage” is enforced. There’s even a cafe like sitting area outside the understreet entrance, for those who want to get out of the rabble of the bar. The most interesting feature about Four Winds is the large assortment of Sioux tribal artwork and culture decorating the walls. A chandelier made from antlers, feathers and purple quartz crystals. The purple quartz crystals glow from light sources at their base, and so, the bar tends to have an almost mystical relaxing feeling about it. The bar is open 9am-3am, though typical traffic is highest from 12pm-2pm and 5pm-12am.
