Best Upscale Sports Bar - 2011
Big Game - CLOSED
It's a play on words: Not only does Big Game show almost every sporting event under the sun on its slew of gigantic TVs (the thirty-foot HDTV screen might pop your pupils), but it also serves game (as in the meat). In fact, the LoDo spot's menu has included everything from bison to mussels to sushi — not exactly your average sports bar fare — as well as microbrews that stand above the typical Bud and PBR. And if your team is getting blown out, there's always the ping-pong table in the back of the huge space or the Wii, PlayStation and other video-game systems up front to distract you. We've heard that Big Game may be changing its format, but we hope they stay in the game.
