Denver's ten best jukeboxes
7. Nob Hill Inn, 420 East Colfax Avenue
The jukebox here is heavy on the country, everything from older stuff like Patsy Cline to newer country like Toby Keith. And there's also some Merle Haggard and David Alan Coe, who could probably eat Keith for dinner. Sprinkled in with the country and some blues are some classic-rock mix CDs that include the likes of CCR, George Thorogood, the Stones and ZZ Top.
6. P.S. Lounge, 3416 East Colfax Avenue
Another diverse one, the P.S. Lounge's juke sports everything from the blues -- acts like John Lee Hooker, Buddy Guy and Stevie Ray Vaughan -- to jazz players like Chet Baker, Herbie Hancock and Charles Mingus, to classic rockers like Jethro Tull and the Doors and country folks like Patsy Cline and Johnny Cash. There's enough alt-rock variety to appease most tastes, whether it be Oasis, Vampire Weekend or the Cure. There are also quite a few mixes thrown in from various decades, as well as soundtracks from, for instance, Pulp Fiction and Swingers.
5. Lancer Lounge, 233 East 7th Avenue
Open up most any page of the Lancer Lounge's juke and you'll see just how diverse it is: the Grateful Dead sits next to Queen, Frank Sinatra is next to the Stones, and Tommy James & the Shondells are next to jazz tenor player Ben Webster. There's enough classic jazz here to satisfy any schooled jazzhead, as well as a decent selection of soul, R&B and funk.
