A friend recently moved to CO Springs after going through a horrible divorce and a group of gals (in our 30's) are flying in during late September to help her "celebrate" the new chapter in her life. Would you be so kind as to point out great places for lunch, dinner and a night out? We would like to be able to take a Lyft/Uber everywhere.

Thank you for your time and consideration.

You might like Shuga's at the south end of downtown on Cascade for lunch or dinner.

I'd do Marigolds for lunch https://marigoldcoloradosprings.com/

and Phantom Canyon for beers Restaurants in Colorado Springs, Colorado Springs Brewery | Phantom Canyon

Dinner depends upon how much you want to spend and how dressed up you want to be.

Try out Ivywild Brewing. If she likes beer, go around to different breweries.

I like Cowboy Star, if you're looking for a good steak restaurant.

Front Range BBQ has good music- make sure you have a reservation, though
The Loop has yummy margaritas- in Manitou Springs

Lots of places, maybe if you specified what type of restaurant/where you may like to be centered that can help

I've heard the Rabbit Hole in downtown is terrific.

I didn't care for the menu personally. It was interesting, though. OP it would help if we knew more about tastes/interests etc.

x2. What does the group interest run towards? High end dining or dressed up, casual and fun, particular food types, heavy on conversation and need low ambient volume, want to dance a lot and want it loud, like funky and eclectic local or established national chains? Are we talking about a single night, a couple of nights, desire to do any outdoor things, see any local sights?

We have a number of very high end 5 star or 5 diamond places, we have places that have been featured on Triple D, we have funky college places, a selection of local favorites, as well as regional chain and national chain places.

Drink at the Rabbit Hole or Brooklyn's downtown. If you like good whiskey, Axe and the Oak in Ivywild is great. Principal's Office upstairs is also pretty good, but their drinks are pricey, IMO.

Go downtown...walk to every bar on Tejon...and there's plenty of food...go to
the balcony in Gasoline Alley, too.
When you leave the bartenders may be dancing on the bar in bikinis...and that could be a Wed.
I second Bristol's/Ivywild.
Late night funk at The Burrowing Owl...8th and Cheyenne Blvd.
