Lions Lair on Colfax. http://www.myspace.com/lionslairdenver Tons of dive bars on Colfax many with live music. PS Lounge, 3416 East Colfax, Downtown these is always the El-Chapultepec, though more jazz than rock. Also pick up a copy of the Westword when you are here. http://www.westword.com/

Friday early evenings the Rock Bottom on 16th has live music outside, though I'd not consider it a dive bar but not a nightclub either.

Thanks, exactly what I was looking for! Also, doesn't have to be live music, maybe a great jukebox or music mix, just cool, chill places to hang out.

Have fun! You could easily spend hours eating, drinking & listening to music on the "Fax" aka Colfax. Here is another one

http://www.colfaxavenue.com might be worth a look.

Please let is know how the trip went.

Edit

after looking at the Colfax site, http://www.colfaxavenue.com/bars.php

I totally forgot about Squires. I do love the "about us" description

About me:

The Squire Lounge has been curing people of their sobriety on Colfax since 1920.

El Chapultapec is primarily Jazz, albeit cool. (take cash--they don't take plastic, or at least last time I was there they didn't--and don't eat there!) Bender's Taver near downtown may be something you'd like.

I was not referrring to El Chapultepec.............there are two of them. Chapultapec 2 (Two) (Too) is a completely different animal from the main jazz club. It's a fun place.

Two (Too) (2) is very eclectic, and fits the def of "dive" to a "T". They might have jazz, but then again, they may not. You also may not want to request a pale ale.
