Opening a new sports bar in Colorado Springs
Mitch Yellen, CEO and Founder of Altitude Hospitality Group, hosts a grand opening for the latest addition to his restaurant collection: Trainwreck Colorado, a sports bar at 812 S. Sierra Madre St., with the grand opening from 4 p.m. to 2 a.m. am (21 and over after 10 p.m.) Sept. 10
Other Yellen venues include Garden of the Gods Market & Café, Garden of the Gods Catering and Events, Till Kitchen, The Pinery at the Hill, Vine & Wheel and The Pinery North.
The sports bar will have a 30% discount on food and drink during the opening event, and you can experience the wide range of entertainment on offer in the spacious building, which was once a supply business automobile. Trainwreck has a stadium-sized TV on the main level, where there’s a large bar in the center of the room, and a bank of golf simulators in the basement.
Outside, front and back, there will be sand volleyball, pétanque, garden games and a nine-hole putting green. Of course, there will also be music and food to enjoy.
Evan Wagstaff is the executive chef who, along with his 10-person kitchen team, prepares a menu of “spicy dishes using local ingredients,” Wagstaff said.
The menu includes chicken wings, dips, mac and cheese, sliders, salads, pizzas, sandwiches, burgers, tacos, barbecue ribs, steaks, and fish and chips. The Trainwreck Twinkie ($15) caught our eye with shrimp and bacon tossed in cream cheese and stuffed in a jalapeno, then wrapped in wonton wrap and fried, served with a side of green chili.
Trainwreck hours of operation are 11 a.m. to midnight Sunday, 4 p.m. to midnight Monday through Thursday, 4 p.m. to 2 a.m. Friday, and 11 a.m. to 2 a.m. Saturday. Visit trainwreckco.com.
