Because the only thing better than getting a noticeable buzz is getting a buzz that gets you noticed, check out LoDo's Fluff Bar: a barber 'n bar concept putting scissors to skull by day and operating as a full-fledged watering hole at night, the space is designed to feel like "the inside of a jewelry box", with touches like white leather and white stone, also the keywords in the Dateline job description that landed them Phillips.
If you're due for a cut, you know how Orton must've felt get an appointment with one of their stylists for a trim, a professional straight razor shave, or if you want to know how Joe Namath felt, a manicure all done next to a bank of four LCDs and two projector TVs.
When you're finished becoming hot, hit the bar for seasonal 'tails like the Mountain Manhattan with Leopold Bros whiskey, Three Pins Alpine liqueur & maple syrup, and the VeeV Ginger Marg with acai liqueur, OJ, fresh pressed ginger, and a Blanco tequila called 30-30, though just a couple and you'll be seeing way worse than that.
They're also stocking tons of spirits (from Montanya Platino rum to Peach Street's Jackelope gin), plus ultra-rare beers like Avery's Old Jubilation Seasonal Dark Ale, Lucky Buddha's rice lager, and Firestone Walker's Double Jack IPA available in 22oz bombers, so just like with your haircut, a one or two and you'll be buzzed.
