The Blue Onion Bar and Motor Lodge
The Blue Onion Motel at 8675 East Colfax was originally the Compass Motor Lodge built in 1947 as well. The motel was scraped and the site is now the parking lot for Sheyla's Nightclub.
Just to the west is the A-Bar-G Motel and to the West is the Motel 9, formerly the Palimino Motor Lodge.
