Foursquare Tips

  • Come for the $5 incredibly crappy drinks. Stay for the endless plaid shorts and other douchbaggery
  • 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!
  • 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.
  • Less crowded and more video game focused than the 1 up. Nice stuff.
  • I like this location more than the one in LODO. Cheap drinks and fun arcade games.
  • 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!!
  • Giant jenga, classic arcade games and tasty beers
  • GNR pinball ftw
  • the bartenders are the worst
  • 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!
  • 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.
  • Sunday's - mimosas are only $1 from 11AM-5PM. Get your game on!
  • Arcade and beer, the best combination
  • arcade bar
  • 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.
  • This place is awesome! Good patio for and always fun times with the games.
  • Lots of cheap fun
  • My favorite of the two.
  • Vintage arcade games, cheap beer, shows all the time.
