Default Night Clubs & Rock Clubs (PE/CC)

Has anyone here been to Pollyesters/Culture Club in Denver? What's the vibe? Is it cool? Fill us in. Also are there any other somewhat "similar clubs" in the city itself or nearby (Littleton, Lakewood, elsewhere)?

Back in the day (Jersey in mid 90s) we used to have 3 awesome clubs within few miles of one another off the RT22 corridor: Jukebox Eddies (single floor), JJ Rockers (rock and disco/club room), and the Clubhouse (aka Shout) with multiple tiers sorta like Pollyesters/Culture Club.

If anyone was familiar with these long gone NJ clubs do you know if there are similar clubs to these alive in (metro) Denver? (I just listed these NJ places as a basis for comparison). Thanks.

I thought Pollyesters was hokey. I went a few times many years ago. But it's also hokey in a good way. People dress up 70s style and they play that kind of disco too. It was honestly a good time and different than the usual clubs I went to.

I don't know of any other clubs that are themed like that in downtown Denver. Maybe someone else can help you out there. I'm old now and haven't been clubbing in forever.

I posted this in part because I feel the Jukebox Eddie's or JJ Rockers "concepts" could re-root itself and thrive extremely well in (metro) Denver. The change in demographics and in NYC radio flavor were the "nails in the coffin" for these establishments. Given Denver's demographics and radio flavor I believe such concepts would thrive.

I'm just rambling. You probably think I want to open up a nightclub or two. Anyway back to my original question - where are the similar clubs?

Polly Esther's is closed in Lodo. Maybe someone can respond with other locations for you for the 'burbs. Seems like there used to be a place called HeartThrob, but it may be closed as well. I think Proof of the Pudding (not sure if I have the name right) just east of I-25 and Hampden is an old school type of place, but I've never been there so I can't say for sure.
I liked Polly Esthers when they were in business, but it was always packed to the gills on Sat nights, which made it hard to dance, get a beer, etc.

Did the place draw a good turnout of women?

I don't get it. Did you mean "ginzormous"?

For the most part (with minor exceptions) these concepts played more rock-n-roll and top 40 stuff (vs. techno, club or disco).

Nope. Ginormous. Huge, big. My play on gigantic and enormous. Ginormous. What is ginzormous?

That Coyote Ugly place sounds like what you are describing. I've been a few times and got pretty drunk. But I had to get drunk to have fun. A lot of the men seemed to really like the bar area with the bartender chicks spraying them with water. But um, no offense here, the bartenders are supposed to be hot I thought? The type of clientele attracted to that bar wasn't my kind either. But really loud bad rock music!

By 'ginzo' I meant high hair and fake tans, east coast style.

What about the female patrons?
