Despite some complications surrounding the Clean Indoor Air Act, more and more clubs geared toward the marijuana enthusiast are popping up around Colorado. Operating as “private” or “members only” clubs to bypass the law, these clubs offer different membership options ranging from a simple pay-as-you-enter place to toke your own to dab lounges that offer free hits upon entry with the purchase of a membership.
Though faced with a few complications while getting started, cannabis bars are showing promise thanks to marijuana tourism and Denver’s ever-popular cannabis culture. Now, thanks to clever business plans and careful attention to protocol, marijuana clubs offer residents and out-of-town-ers alike a safe place to relax and enjoy our new found freedom.
- Club 64/The 710 Club: Specializing in welcoming tourists to our mile high city, Club 64 and its sister store, the 710 Club, offer a number of membership options. From single-day admittance to month-by-month memberships, guests at these clubs can enjoy tours, events, medicated treats and a special smoker’s lounge. They’ll even pick you up from the airport, bring you a goodie bag and swing you by a dispensary before arriving at home base.
- Club Ned: If you fancy a toke in a mountain town, then Club Ned is where you’ll want to be. In keeping with the small-town feel of Nederland, the town in which Club Ned resides, the owners of the bar have sought the approval of the whole city, thus reducing the changes for a raid and increasing the safety of the town as a whole. Purchase your monthly membership then come enjoy live music and good people at the area’s first cannabis-friendly lounge.
- Studio A64: This upscale vape bar hosts any number of events to cater to smokers of all types. Offering weekly casino nights, a jazz lounge and a karaoke bar, Studio A64 is a great place to go to take in local culture, enjoy adult activities and perhaps even get a new piece or T-shirt as a souvenir. Entry fees are about $5 depending on the event, but do not include the membership fee.
- The lazy Lion: As a member of the Lazy Lion cannabis club, members get exclusive access to an arcade room, pay-per-view entertainment and $2 dab hits, or come in for “dabby hour” between 4:00 and 5:00 to snag half-priced hits.
Choose from any number of rigs which feature electric nails so you’ll never have to wait for a torch. In addition to the great entertainment and tasty extracts, members get the chance to meet and greet fellow connoisseurs who share the love of cannabis.
It took some time, but marijuana clubs are finally arriving in Colorado, where Cannabis and culture collide. Whether you’re a resident or a visitor to our beautiful state, you can find a safe place to enjoy cannabis at one of these member’s only establishments, where music, entertainment and marijuana come together to create a culture of peace, fun and good friends. Because it’s always more fun to share, and cannabis is certainly no exception.
