The United Artists mega-movie house and Dave & Buster's, both anchor tenants at Colorado Center, the sprawling development at I-25 and South Colorado Boulevard, are getting a neighboring waterhole and restaurant.

There's a liquor-license application in the window of a street-level space at 2000 South Colorado Boulevard for Long Bar, which lists Roger Greenfield, a restaurateur whose nationwide concepts include Bluepoint, Primebar (which opened and subsequently closed in Denver), One North, Red Star Tavern, Townhouse and, at one time, the Bar Louie chain, which he sold to Sun Capital in 2010, as the managing member.

The space, which is 6,900-square-feet, was once occupied by Ed Debevic's, a '50s diner that started in Chicago in 1984, but lasted in Denver for just a few years. Scott Coldwell, the vice president of Lincoln Property Company, which executed the lease, says that Long Bar will open later this year or in early 2013.

In the meantime, the bar/restaurant has a date with the Department of Excise and Licenses on July 16 to hear whether the city will Grant Greenfield both a restaurant and liquor license as well as a standard cabaret license, which means that music will also be part of the equation -- but no patron dancing and no adult entertainment.

Bummer.

I actually agree with Rusty.. Colorado Blvd is a mess to drive in, no matter what time of day.. This place is already to big at 6k ft, like your mom, and with it this so called bar will be serving (more than likely) overpriced beers, mocktails, and burgers cooked to dead. Even with a repositioning of the 'Buster, its not enough of a destination joint except for the po'folk that surrounds that area..

Not to mention sharing a building with a glorified arcade (pretty much obsolete in the X-Box/iPhone era) and a movie theater (dying out due to better HDTVs, overpriced food, BitTorrent and the general slovenly rudeness of Americans when in a group setting ). A virtual trifecta of fail!

Given that no one lives withing 100s of meters of this place, who could object to the license? Can we place bets in the dead pool even before it opens?
