The food at School House is fun and varied. “We didn’t want to pigeonhole ourselves into a narrow style,” shared Spears. “We have a variety of foods; it’s like school, you always learn something, but most things are not particularly adventurous, just solid food that our guests can enjoy.” Chef Steven Baker is in charge of the kitchen and his menu, drafted like a multiple choice school test, includes items that range from salads, sandwiches, soups, and burgers, some of them with a modern twist.

Spears, an Arvada native, has had his eye on this building for years. Along with family members, he owns and operates, Scrumptious, the ice cream parlor around the corner from School House that has a second location in Longmont. Four years ago, the Spears family put an offer in to buy the school house building, but the deal could not go through. Since then, an outpost of DiCicco’s existed in part of the current building. When that failed, Spears tried his luck again and in April 2013 he bought the building.

Located in Arvada at 5660 Olde Wadsworth Boulevard, in the original (you guessed) school house, the bar and eatery took its past uses to heart and created a space reminiscent of classrooms and hallways and school-related paraphernalia without turning it into a theme park. “Arvada loves its history so we wanted to honor that, give the neigbhborhood a place to enjoy, but not make it too themey either,” explained owner Scott Spears.

A look around the room reveals the bar top covered in #2 pencils, chemistry symbols on table tops, retrofitted school house chairs that got a second life as bar stools, microscopes, a biology lab human body, and more. There are also five TVs that will play sports events and other popular programming and two other TVs in other parts of the space. The dining room, as well as the upstairs area, complete the schoolhouse-feel of the main room with library-like walls, benches made of school bus seats, portraits of American presidents, and even a Principal’s office.

The highlight of the menu is a list of build-your-own entrees — “Varsity” flatbreads, “Collegiate” burgers and “Short Bus” mac ‘n cheese — with more than 50 toppings that customers can add. Murty says the restaurant will be running contests on the School House Facebook page to see who can build the best combo, which will then be added to the specials board.

Home schooled is the way we like it, so we make most of our grub right here in house. With a huge menu of appetizers, salads, sandwiches, flatbreads, and entrée’s, we are sure to offer something for everyone. Our chefs have worked all over the country incorporating regional styles, as you will be able to tell from our menu!

I think this is a cool place to have drinks, but I have had three very unsuccessful attempts at eating here. I do not recommend anything from their kitchen. But if you go yo Silvi's down the street, they are loaded with gf options.

“We wanted to have a menu that would appeal to a wide range of guests,” adds Murty. Among a list of dinner plates covering barbecue pork ribs, lasagnetti and spanakopita, Murty points out the half boneless chicken stuffed with prosciutto, sage and Parmesan as one of his favorites from chef Steven Baker’s kitchen.
