I had a blast the last time I was here! The rooftop is a decent ammount of space and the bartenders were cool!

Normally, I have a blast at this venue. The atmosphere is relaxed and, not to be redundant, but "funky". Unfortunately, one of the bartenders provided terrible service my last visit. This is obviously not just my own experience as several

Funky Buddha is a great place to have a drink or two and enjoy a fun relaxed atmosphere. But whatever you do, DON'T PARK IN THE 789 Sherman parking lot. I paid the $5 to park, and they ticketed me anyway (for $40!) despite my polite

***FIRST***The last time I was at the Funky Buddha was about 2 years ago and it was not cool. The "GM" was drunk and was harassing all the females, the music was way too ghetto, and the cocktail had an attitude. ****HOWEVER****

If you are looking for a fun place to meet friends this is the place. Love the rooftop patio. Great music, great atmosphere, with a diverse crowd.

Fun place to be. The downstairs bar is dark and funky (just like the name says) while the rooftop patio is cool. A wonderful place to enjoy the evening.

I went to Funky Buddha last week while on business in Denver. I spent $24.50 on drinks and added a $5.00 tip. Apparently that wasn't good enough as $54.00 in charges cleared today.\r

The Funky Buddha used to be a bar that was super upscale and labeled as a 'place to be seen'. But since several new bars moved into downtown a few years ago, the vibe at the Buddha has changed significantly. It used to be overcrowded but now it has become a great spot to hang out without always feeling too crammed.

During the summer, the upstairs patio of the Buddha is one of the best places to be in all of Denver. The music consists mostly of local DJs spinning everything from house to techno. The atmosphere is great and all the remodeling they did upstairs has certainly made this a great place to hang out during the warm weather. The bartenders have always been excellent and the service has been first class. It also is nice to not have to have bottle service to fins a place to sit for friends on the weekend, unlike many downtown bars.

went there last weekend and witnessed a girl getting groped by an agressive man. the girl tried to tell the bouncers about him and was blown off time after time, even the GM let the man stay and continue to be served alchohol and prey on

I went to the Buddha for the 2nd time this weekend, after not having been for a couple of years to hang with some friends. I heard the music was good and there was a pretty good gay scene. The scene was decent but the music was standard

The Funky Buddha has always been home to a fun, good looking staff, ranging from a low key lounge to a packed pseudo club. I have been going there for a while and have had a range of experiences all of which have been wonderful. As a

I've always heard good things about this place. So, I was excited when a friend suggested going there on a Saturday night. The bar had a nice rooftop patio and ambience without having to deal with Lodo. Unfortunately, the patrons of this

What happened? I visited this club in 2006 and had a very nice experience. Last Friday, June 8, 2007 I went into happy hour alone. I had barely gotten relaxed when the waitress and manager verbally attacked me. The manager yelled at me

I like this place. If you all went there, I probably wouldn't. I've never gotten bad service. It wasn't crowded or too bright, so I LOVE it! I'll single-handedly keep the place open if I have to, heh-heh!!!!

Located close to Downtown, the Funky Buddha offers a place for the "too cool for the club" gang to hang out, enjoy drinks, and try to pick up. The bar alternates between ridiculously crowded to hey, is anyone else in here? It's got a cool vibe, though, and you can't help but feel a little bit better than the poor schleps at the bars next door.
Enjoy your drinks indoors or outside on the covered patio. Wear your good cologne, and look your best. -You never know who you'll see here.

I don't go to a lounge for deep intimate conversatio, or to get blasted, so FB works excellent for me. We get out of LoDo, the decor and art is excellent, the waitresses are of course, sexy, and there is eye candy in abundance. Drinks are

Expensive! Crowd is made up of wealthy yuppies who are rude and uninviting. Mostly people in there mid 30's and up.

If you're really into bars where you have to elbow your way through the crowd to move anywhere and where you are surrounded by people "making the scene" rather than enjoying a good cocktail, Funky Buddha is for you. But count me out. Maybe

Pros: Cool people, Hot waitresses, Strong drinks

Cons: Heat patio more!, Turn lights up a bit, Turn music down a bit

After living in Manhattan and LA, Denver nightlife is pretty dim. But the FB is pretty good. Pretty waitress who's very slow. Good music. Too small dance floor. But fewer of the ball cap knuckle heads than most venues.

Didn't appreciate the waitress taking our drinks when they were half full ... six of us thought it was their money making strategy, after we all lost our half full drinks. The atmosphere was cool but overall, not worth the price for half

The FB was way too small, overcrowded, the people were pretty friendly, but I wouldn't wait in line to go there again.
Couldn't even go upstairs and this was on a Thursday night.
The only good thing was there was no cover

Thank you Funky Buddha for building a patio that Denverites can be proud of. I recently reserved a table on the patio and was impressed at how they were able to take care of their customers. I never waited in line and the waitress was on

What's with the $100 per table deposit? We were looking for a fun time and were hugely disappointed in the Funky Buddha. There are plenty of patios in Denver so go ELSEWHERE!

In Short
The owners of the Church and Vinyl turned another dive into a hot spot with as much faux fur and leather pants as you can pack into a joint without the paparazzi showing up. Built on the ashes of Romansito's, the Buddha…
