  • A.F. Ray

    A.F. Ray's

    2700 8th Ave. Greeley, CO 80631
    970-353-1706

    http://www.afrays.com Named after a bootlegger who served booze to folks in Weld County during Prohibition (and who allegedly shot someone's finger off in a poker game), Greeley-based A.F. Ray's is hailed as Northern Colorado's only bar/arcade. The spot, which also serves New York-style pizza (as well as subs and salads), is popular with the UNC set, especially on weekends when it hosts live music or DJs. There are also karaoke, poker and beer-pong nights during the week. Read more about A.F. Ray's >>

  • Abbey Tavern

    Abbey Tavern

    5151 E. Colfax Ave. Denver, CO 80220
    303-321-5151

    http://www.theabbeytaverndenver.com Call it the luck of the Irish: With the Abbey Tavern, Glen Eastwood has managed to create a pub that's better than the sum of its parts. The former general manager of a couple of Irish bars around town, Eastwood turned an old florist's shop on East Colfax into a true hangout for Park Hill, a neighborhood hungry for more restaurant options... ;An Irish pub, to me, is a form of inviting hospitality and warmth, very welcoming; says Eastwood. And the Abbey is welcoming indeed, with eager servers, an excellent weekday happy hour and an atmosphere that attracts families, young groups, older couples and singles alike. They all order from a menu that features a predictable roster of Irish standards and American bar fare, with some dishes -- like the Abbey rolls that fry up corned beef, sauerkraut and Swiss in an egg-roll wrapper; that are a combo of both. While most of the food is unlikely to win any awards, the place itself has very winning ways. Read more about Abbey Tavern >>

  • Ace

    Ace

    501 E. 17th Ave. Denver, CO 80203
    303-800-7705

    http://www.acedenver.com Ping-pong has arrived in Denver. And if what’s happening at Ace, the latest restaurant by the team behind Vesta Dipping Grill and Steuben’s, is any indication, the game has the power to transform a night on the town. Although owners Josh and Jen Wolkon can’t take credit for making the squat paddles cool, they certainly lobbed the craze into Denver’s prime time, repurposing a cavernous, 9,000-square-foot garage next to Steuben’s into a hangout extraordinaire. Even without the eleven ping-pong tables (including some on the patio), the space would feel like a party: lights low, music pumping, the decor full of fun touches like shipping containers, airplane parts and a curvy bar with scorpion bowls, alcoholic shaved ices and fab barman Randy Layman. Waits for a ping-pong table approach two hours on weekends; fortunately, there’s plenty to do in the interim. Eat, for example. Because as much as Ace is a ping-pong hall and bar, it also has a kitchen intent on keeping up with the spot’s flashier components. Food skews Asian – but it’s reinterpreted Asian, with none of the dishes we’ve all come to know (if not love) at Americanized Asian joints. Instead, go for crispy beef in honey-ginger sauce, ginger-soy steamed sea bass, red-curry beef, and steamed bao, stuffed with goodies like chicken thighs or braised short ribs.

  • Ace Hi Tavern

    Ace Hi Tavern

    1216 Washington Ave. Golden, CO 80401
    303-279-9043

    Ace Hi Tavern is a Golden institution: Residents of the sleepy foothills town have been living it up at this Washington Street bar for half a century. The cushy booths are just the thing for sinking into if you don't feel like perching on a bar stool, and the tavern has plenty of distractions for drinkers, including a pool table and television. There are bound to be several other people in the bar no matter when you walk in -- but on weekends, during happy hours and on beer pong nights, expect it to be packed. Ace Hi serves hot dogs out of a wire rotisserie for $1, plus the usual array of chips to help balance out the booze. The decor is Western-themed and Colorado-proud, with maps of the state and "Native" signs adorning the walls, and old-fashioned steer horns fancied up with Mardi Gras beads stationed above the cash register. The tavern features DJs on Fridays and karaoke on Saturdays, and when there's no live entertainment to be had, you'll find plenty of hard rock on the jukebox. Read more about Ace Hi Tavern >>

  • Adrift

    Adrift

    218 S. Broadway Denver, CO 80223
    303-778-8454

    Between the '60s and the '80s, Denver had a fairly vital tiki scene, thanks to Trader Vic's and Don the Beachcomber. But save for a few short-lived tries over the past few decades, this city's tiki action was largely extinguished years ago. When the 2,200-square-foot Adrift finally opened in 2012 after several delays, it established itself as Denver's only tiki bar. Co-owner Jay Dedrick, who owns Denver's Swing Thai restaurants, wanted the spot to be old-school and timeless, and Adrift is definitely a step back in time. The spot, which pays homage to the thatch-roofed hooch huts of yore, specializes in modern and classic tiki cocktails as well as Prohibition-era tropical drinks. Read more about Adrift >>

  • Alpine Dog Brewing

    Alpine Dog Brewing

    1505 Ogden St. Denver, CO 80218
    720-214-5170

    http://www.alpinedogbrewery.com Gardiner Hammond has always been a fan of Capitol Hill -- the bars, the music venues, the mix of people and styles. So when he began searching for a location for his brewery, Alpine Dog Brewing, he focused on the eclectic neighborhood. "It's the densest part of Denver," he notes, "and there weren't a lot of breweries here." But finding a space that was the right size, and for the right price, was difficult. At least until last September, 2013, when Angelo's CDs moved into the large space next to the Ogden Theatre that was formerly run by Independent Records. Angelo's only wanted half of the building, so Hammond took the other 4,200 square feet. Just over a year later, Alpine Dog -- a term that refers to Hammond's love of the outdoors -- opened with a fifteen-barrel brewhouse, a 35-foot-long bar, room for nearly 100 people, and four beers on tap: a rye blonde, an amber, an IPA and a Belgian pale ale with American hops.

  • Altitude Bar & Grill

    Altitude Bar & Grill

    3484 S. Broadway Englewood, CO 80113

    Altitude Bar & Grill took over the former home of Pete's Cafe in Englewood in the summer of 2013. Located near a few other bars on this stretch of South Broadway and not too far south of the Gothic Theatre, the Altitude, which sports a pool table, is a no-frills joint that’s a modern take on the diner it used to be. The menu includes several types of burgers, as well as sandwiches, salads and appetizers, and the occasional DJ spins on the weekends. Read more about Altitude Bar & Grill >>

  • Appaloosa Grill

    Appaloosa Grill

    535 16th St. Denver, CO 80202
    720-932-1700

    http://www.appaloosagrill.com When you stumble off the 16th Street Mall and into the Appaloosa, a cheerful, independently owned spot, odds are good that you'll hit a happy hour. Because the Appaloosa's happy hours are very, very expansive -- almost as expansive as its booze is inexpensive during these times. And you can often down your drinks while listening to live music -- a rarity in this part of town. Read more about Appaloosa Grill >>

  • Aqua Lounge

    Aqua Lounge

    1417 Krameria St. Denver, CO 80220
    720-287-0584

    The Mozart Lounge long held a place in the hearts of dive-bar diehards, serving cheap, early-morning beers to workers just off the job at nearby hospitals and late-night cocktails to the riffraff and bikers who might grace those same med centers later in the evening. But in 2009, the space was completely reinvented by the owners of the Barker Lounge as a slick, H2O-themed cocktail lounge, complete with sleek leather furniture, live entertainment, a VIP area and dim lighting. It might seem a little out of place on a block sandwiched between Colfax and one of the busiest King Soopers in the state, but Aqua Lounge is making it work. Even those Mozart regulars of old might be lured back by the four-hour happy hour Aqua offers each day, plus the karaoke on Thursdays and live pianists on the weekends.

  • Argyll Whisky Beer

    Argyll Whisky Beer

    1035 E. 17th Ave Denver, CO 80218
    303-847-0850

    http://argylldenver.com/ Those of us who lamented the closing of restaurant mogul Robert Thompson's groundbreaking Argyll in Cherry Creek worried about how the concept would survive the transition to Uptown, where the restaurant finally reopened in June 2014. Would his gastropub -- now named Argyll Whisky Beer -- feel passé? After all, hundreds of restaurants have opened in town since Argyll 1.0 fell prey to Cherry Creek's cramped, subterranean location. Had the city moved on -- even if the owner hadn't, as evidenced by the words "non oblitus" (Latin for "not forgotten") written on the new bar? But as it turns out, Thompson has re-created a fine gastropub that reflects the way we eat -- and drink -- in Denver now, not in Cherry Creek in 2008. The space is spacious, with a sunny atrium and a decor made of odds and ends that fit together in fun ways. The menu, too, is every bit as fun and comfortable as pub fare should be, with the requisite seasonal, high-end touches expected of a gastropub --- and a bit of British cheekiness, too. Fortunately, the menu still includes the Scotch egg, as well as the original Argyll's housemade potato chips with malt-vinegar gastrique. But there's also duck-liver mousse, cauliflower curry, an updated version of bangers and mash, and even savory-leaning desserts, like a chocolate mousse touched with masala and tempered by salted almonds. "We wanted to create a gastropub that...reflects the way the Brits eat today," says Thompson. It's the way we want to eat, too. Read more about Argyll Whisky Beer >>

  • Ari

    Ari's Tavern

    5686 Pecos St. Denver, CO 80221
    720-389-5115

    After more than two decades of working at the Brown Palace, in 2010 Michael Pacheco opened Ari’s Tavern on Pecos Street near 1-76. The cozy spot attracts its share of bikers and also fills up with colorful regulars who come for live music, DJs, comedy, trivia and karaoke throughout the week. A decent patio, a handful of TVs tuned to various sports games and a menu that includes burgers, Mexican food and appetizers round out the tavern's amenities. Read more about Ari's Tavern >>

  • Armida

    Armida's Restaurant

    840 Lincoln St. Denver, CO 80203
    303-837-8921

    Karaoke was, of course, brought to these shores by way of Japan, so it's not every day you find a Mexican restaurant that has drunken people singing words off of a screen. Enter Armida's, which is packed with people every night, all doing it their way. But karaoke isn't the only draw here: The booze is cheap, and you can enjoy it on a patio that overlooks Lincoln. The menu hinges on standards like burritos and fajitas, but there are also some specialty items that could be playing your tune. Read more about Armida's Restaurant >>

  • The Armoury

    The Armoury

    2048 Larimer St. Denver, CO 80205
    303-295-0215

    http://www.armourydenver.com Named for the Arsenal soccer team's fan store, the Armoury opened in early 2013 as an Old World pub that focused on soccer, spirits heavy on beer and browns, and a live-music lineup featuring punk, post-punk and indie-rock acts. But within a year of opening, the bar was focusing less on soccer, and the live music was leaning more toward funk and jam bands. The refurbished warehouse space is decked out with hardwood floors, exposed red brick, several TVs (including one with a huge projector screen), a zinc bar, and an antique back bar that features a gorgeous porcelain-and-baked-enamel tap system from which eight brews are poured. The menu goes beyond standard Brit fare, with salads and homemade soups, flatbread pizzas and sandwiches. Read more about The Armoury >>

  • Arvada Tavern

    Arvada Tavern

    5707 Olde Wadsworth Blvd. Arvada, CO 80002
    303-424-9905

    The Arvada Tavern opened in 1933, not too long after the repeal of Prohibition, and was issued the first liquor license in what was then the town of Arvada (and became a city in 1951). A dive for decades, the tavern's interior got a modern facelift in 2013 under new ownership while still holding on to the building's vintage charm. More upscale now, the Arvada Tavern serves a variety of handcrafted vintage cocktails and Colorado craft beers, and the menu includes soups, salads, small plates (including jalapeño cheddar pretzels and Rocky Mountain oysters), and entrees such as potato-and-cheese pierogi, bratwurst, steak and trout. Upstairs in the Bernard Ballroom, there's live music every Friday from jazz, bluegrass or folk acts. Read more about Arvada Tavern >>

  • Athmar Lounge

    1795 W. Mississippi Ave. Denver, CO 80223-3012
    303-935-5238

    Anyone's who's ever been to the DMV knows that it can be damn near traumatic at times, but sometimes a cold beer or a shot can calm your nerves enough to deal with the chaos. If that sounds like your kind of solution, the Athmar Lounge, just spitting distance from the DMV on West Mississippi near Tejon, is the spot for you. Yes, it's a strip-mall dive, and you might see some of the same folks you were sharing space with at the DMV, but it's still a cool neighborhood joint with a jukebox and pool tables.

  • Atomic Cowboy

    Atomic Cowboy

    3237 E. Colfax Ave. Denver, CO 80206
    303-377-7900

    http://www.atomiccowboy.net Close by the Bluebird Theater, the Atomic Cowboy has morphed from a late-night, post-concert fave into an all-day jack-of-all-trades spot. Two food purveyors inhabit the bar: From early in the morning into the afternoon, the Denver Biscuit Company cranks out biscuit sandwiches and platters for the local workforce; starting at lunch, Fat Sully's bakes greasy, huge pizza slices and pies for dine-in, takeout or delivery, and continues serving until the wee hours. As for the Cowboy itself, the cavernous joint comes fully stocked with a bi-level bar that features a daily happy hour (as well as daily specials), a trivia night, a few well-placed plasmas, pool tables and a slew of board games.

    970-493-5555

    http://www.avogadros.com Avogadro's Number in Fort Collins could be described as offbeat and off the beaten track. The venue's warmly lit stage area is painted with a stunning mural that circles the room with people, stars and planets, and the crowd reflects the folksy, friendly vibe of the music calendar: lots of bluegrass, country and rock acts, jam bands and acoustic guitarists/singers, as well as a solid open-mic night.
