Old desks hang from the ceiling beams in the bookshelf-lined “library bar” downstairs, while the upstairs bar is designated the “teacher’s lounge.” The dining room’s illuminated by lamps made from globes, the bathroom walls resemble chalkboards, the menus look like classwork -- and all in all, this Olde Town Arvada spot is one big, hilarious flashback to first grade. Except that your elementary-school cafeteria probably didn’t carry some 700 different whiskeys from all over the world, along with more than 50 craft beers, and your lunch lady probably didn’t offer burgers and flatbreads with dozens upon dozens of toppings including shishito aioli, dried apricots, and pork jerky.
