First thing to know about Bender's, everyone that works there is much cooler than you. 2nd thing to know, Benders is NOT a good music venue. The sound is pathetic and they actually pay their sound guy (who sucks and could care less) and door guy out of the band's door money. If you love feedback in your music and don't need monitor mixes to perform, you will love this "music venue." There are much better places to spend your money and have a good time. If you are a band, you are very foolish to even consider this place.

This place has a very cool retro style of atmosphere. "Momma" is the main bartender. She is a hip chick covered in tat's. The artwork on the walls are very wild. For instance, a painting of Adolf Hitler with a nude womans body.

Ah, Bender's Tuesday and Thursday night Karaoke! While I'm not a huge fan of most of the clientele that frequents this bar, karaoke night is always a fun time with good friends. Although now that karaoke host Alison isn't there, it's not worth going.

This is a rock and roll bar, not your lodo club. I like going to a place where i dont see 50 dudes all wearing two polo shirts with their collars popped up having a bro -tastic time. The music does'nt just come from the juke box.....or

My friends and I finally had a night off from school and ended up at Bender's. In short, the girl in charge of karaoke "Alison" was incredibly rude to my friends, basically calling them stupid because they couldn't find the paper to write

Pros: owners were nice/helpful

Cons: karaoke girl, the crowd

Sure, I frequent dark, dive bars.. no problem there. There is just nothing special about it. If you are looking for a place that serves cheap beer.. this is one of many bars in Denver that do just that. Yawn!

i tend to frequent the moodier, darker, grungier bars... so, i made the mistake of dropping into bender's.\r
i'd say there were about 9-10 people inside when i walked into the bar side... so, plenty of seating at the bar.\r
i was one of 3

The right mixture of seedy, dirty, and perfect. The music stage side is awesome, the other side is grimy, but they compliment each other nicely.

Cons: Sometimes there is too much "cool" vibe from the staff. Lighten up.
