After months of delays, Denver restaurant vet and hot rod enthusiast Gary Lee Bomar finally opened Gary Lee's Motor Club & Grub over the weekend. Bomer encountered several setbacks during construction, including backlash from the West Wash Park Neighborhood Association over motorcycle parking, but he's now behind his bar, pouring Colorado's good stuff. The auto garage-turned-restaurant was completely renovated, and the result is a casual bar and eatery that serves American comfort food staples like pulled pork sandwiches, ribs, sausages and meatloaf. Gary Lee's is open Monday through Sunday, 11 a.m. to last call.
