The East Coast
238 Linden St
Fort Collins, CO 80524
Mon- Sun 5pm to close – but no one really knows
When in old town, we usually end up at this bar and are always prepared to drink. Besides people watching and consuming alcoholic beverages, there isn't much else to this bar. It is a no frills kind of place that exhibits little east coast flare, unless you stumble upon the owner. He’s a friendly guy who is more than willing to have a drink with you . His concoctions usually include tequila - since that’s what he loves ( you have been warned).
Atmosphere: This bar is dim by day and very dark by night. It is a small place with very little seating unless you find an empty stool at the bar. There is bench seating along the east side wall, but no real tables, only tall cocktail stands and the walls are lined with pictures of East Coast city scapes. You will find a mixed crowd on any given night, but always an even balance of genres. There are two very clean bathrooms located in the back but be warned -they are unisex. There is usually good music playing via DJ or band and people dancing throughout.
Service: Mostly bar service is provided, but you will occasionally see a cocktail waitress on patrol. The bartenders all know their “stuff” and stay on top of their job. Occasionally the bar gets crowded and it might take a minute or two longer to get a drink, but the owner seems ever ready to pitch in.
Drinks: This bar is equipped with the usual selection of local craft and domestic brews at a little lower price than other old town bars. In addition to brew, it is a fully stocked bar. East Coast is also the home of the “Bombito” which is a smaller version of a Jager (jagermeister) Bomb poured into an over-sized shot glass with only a little bit of Red Bull.
Food: No menu. No food. No kitchen. Who needs it? This place is strictly a watering hole.
Amenities: Jukebox, small patio area out front, pool table, bubble hockey, small stage.
Parking: Parking is available on the street in old town where ever you can find it.
The Buzz: Comedy on Monday nights, live music and/or Dj on Tuesdays.
