Good Times Saloon (State Armory)

-A A +A
State Armory
1921, John J. Huddart?; Major A. R. Young, superintendent of construction. 614 8th Ave.

This two-story beige brick hall with square, parapeted corner towers and a classical terracotta entry flanked by paired pilasters is similar to those in Brighton, Canon City, Fort Morgan, and elsewhere. While an armory, this became a popular place for parties and dances. Now recycled as a restaurant and bar, it retains the armory theme with a B-17 bomber suspended over the rear dance floor and numerous missiles, part of a submarine, and other weapons as part of the thematic decor. In addition, hundreds of antiques and four bars make this an offbeat museum. The interior of the large, long building retains the original hardwood floors, staircases, and balcony rails.
