  • Cactus Jack

    Cactus Jack's Saloon

    4651 Highway 73 Evergreen, CO 80439
    303-674-1564 This saloon is a popular spot for music, imbibing and patio-sitting - and while you're soaking up the sun or knocking one back, you're bound to get hungry. Fortunately, Cactus Jack's has a solid menu of bar food, with a Mexican plate or two for good measure. Taking center stage are the two-dozen-plus Widespread Burgers, each named after a different Widespread Panic song and featuring toppings that range from fried eggs to Hatch green chiles to regular ol' bacon and cheese slices. You can order the Widespread Burgers with half-pound patties of all-natural, seasoned Anderson beef, marinated all-natural chicken breast or even Boca burgers. And that's not the end of the feel-good food: The establishment uses wind power and green products wherever possible, and it's been recycling bottles, cans and paper since back when "green" only referred to a color.

  • Campus Lounge

    Campus Lounge

    701 S. University Blvd. Denver, CO 80209

    A Bonnie Brae staple for decades, the Campus Lounge epitomizes the friendly neighborhood saloon with its seasoned waitstaff, drink specials and an owner, Jim Whiste (a retired pro hockey player and DU Pioneer alum), who can often be found bellied up to the bar with his patrons on weekday afternoons. The kitchen is another draw, famous for a full menu of sloppy Mexican food and daily steak specials. The main room boasts huge booths perfect for lazy game-watching on a big-screen TV; and an adjoining space offers video games, pool, foosball tables - and a door that leads to the Campus Lounge's newest amenity, a low-key patio.

  • Candlelight Tavern

    Candlelight Tavern

    383 S. Pearl St. Denver, CO 80209
    303-778-9530 Open for over seventy years on an unassuming block of South Pearl, the Candlelight Tavern is a neighborhood haven, the lone bar sitting peacefully next to residences and a milk-truck lot. But the Tavern's patrons are far from unassuming: A rambunctious crowd -- including everyone from working stiffs to college kids and sports fans -- can be found just behind the bar's door seven nights a week, enjoying darts, pool, foosball, an always-occupied shuffleboard table and a menu that includes burgers and fries. And the wood-paneled saloon's biggest attraction may the wall-mounted jukebox, which features plenty of sing-along-inducing songs. Read more about Candlelight Tavern >>

  • Carey-On Saloon

    6829 Space Village Dr. Colorado Springs, CO 80907
    719-591-0300 The Carey-On Saloon's website proclaims "Real people. Real country." That pretty much sums up this Colorado Springs venue, which has a large dance floor and hosts live country bands on Saturdays, while DJs spin everything from country classics to newer hits on Fridays. Free country dance lessons (line dance and two-step) are available on Tuesdays and Fridays. Read more about Carey-On Saloon >>

  • Caribou Club

    411 E. Hopkins Ave. Aspen, CO 81611

  • Carioca Cafe (Bar Bar)

    Carioca Cafe (Bar Bar)

    2060 Champa St. Denver, CO 80202

    It's fascinating to watch how the clientele at the Carioca Cafe, better known as Bar Bar, changes over the course of a day (and three happy hours) -- especially when this classic dive, one of the last left downtown, brings in live music. Get there a few hours before a gig and you'll find some of Denver's finest barflies, a few of which might have been there since the doors opened that morning. As the hour gets later, an assortment of hipsters, punks and rockers mixes in with those barflies, the music gets loud, and the next thing you know, you're in a veritable drinker's nirvana. Dive, he said. Read more about Carioca Cafe (Bar Bar) >>

  • Carroll's Corner Pub

    3620 S. Federal Blvd. Englewood, CO 80110

    This cozy spot at the corner of Federal and Hampden falls somewhere between a dive and an Irish pub. As one of the few bars in the area, the no-frills Carroll’s attracts a steady stream of regulars. It opens early for breakfast and serious drinkers, and also serves lunch and dinner. The drinks are reasonably priced, and it’s a decent spot to catch a game or sing at one of the bar’s occasional karaoke nights. Read more about Carroll's Corner Pub >>

  • Casey

    Casey's Bistro and Pub

    7301 E. 29th St. Denver, CO 80238
    720-974-7350 Casey's Bistro and Pub, on Main Street in Stapleton, is an Irish pub brought to us by the people who gave us Darcy's in the Tech Center and McCabe's in Aurora. The quasi-Irish pub's exterior is all shiny stainless steel and glass windows, but inside, it has a much more authentic feel -- if you can avoid the glare of the setting sun. There's the requisite dark paneling and a tap row that could easily convince you that you're actually in Ireland. Guinness, Murphy's, Boddington's, Smithwick's and Kronenberg 1664 grace the lineup, and there's nary a glimpse of their lesser American brothers. Read more about Casey's Bistro and Pub >>

  • Casselman

    Casselman's Bar & Venue

    2620 Walnut St. Denver, CO 80205
    720-242-8923 The last word of Casselman's Bar & Venue really tells you what you need to know: This is a venue, above all, and a huge one, located on a warehouse-y stretch of Walnut Street in the Ballpark neighborhood. The space can feel absolutely cavernous on an off night. Still, the long bar up front is always welcoming, flanked on one side by couches and pillows, under drawings of Mos Def, Jay-Z and other artists. If there's no live music to move you, you can swing on a giant tire swing or play beer pong. And you don't need to drink all that beer without some sustenance to sop it up: Casselman's has a small but serviceable menu, full of burgers, appetizers and a few Mex specials. And at 6 p.m. on Tuesdays, they serve up beef tacos for free as long as the supply holds out. Read more about Casselman's Bar & Venue >>

  • Castaways Lounge

    Castaways Lounge

    451 W. 84th Ave. Westminster, CO 80260

    Sure, there are a few boat steering wheels and photos of boats hanging up around the place, but that's pretty much where the nautical theme ends at Castaways. Despite its name, the lounge is a far cry from being an homage to Gilligan's Island. Rather, it's a decent-sized neighborhood joint for folks who are serious about their sports and pool. Well, that and karaoke. A lot of customers come down for karaoke on the weekends, when the joint can be especially lively. The drinks here are fairly priced and the regulars are welcoming.

  • The Castle Bar and Grille

    The Castle Bar and Grille

    6657 S. Broadway Littleton, CO 80121
    303-798-5981 With signed jerseys of John Elway, Terrell Davis and Chauncey Billups hanging up in glass cases around the bar, it's pretty obvious that the Castle's owners are serious about sports. And with a 103-inch high-definition projector screen and nine hi-def flat-screens, there aren't many spots where you can miss the action. But while sports are a big draw here, a lot of folks frequent the place for live music and karaoke on the weekends, and poker and trivia during the week. The Castle, which was once a Waffle House, and Punch & Judy's after that, also serves some decent pub grub like burgers, sandwiches and Mexican food. Read more about The Castle Bar and Grille >>

  • Castle Rock Bar & Grill

    Castle Rock Bar & Grill

    302 Wilcox St. Castle Rock, CO 80104

    A dive bar in the heart of downtown Castle Rock, the Castle Rock Bar & Grill is a popular spot for regulars as well as out-of-town folks looking for a colorful slice of local flavor. The vintage bar is also one of the few spots in town where you can still smoke (it managed to get grandfathered in before the no-smoking ban was passed). And if hanging out with the locals isn't entertainment enough, there are pool tables and weekly karaoke nights, and the menu offers sliders, fried shrimp and green chili. Read more about Castle Rock Bar & Grill >>

  • Casual Lounge

    Casual Lounge

    65 W. Floyd Ave. Englewood, CO 80110

    Since it's around the corner from the Gothic Theatre and Moe's Original Bar-B-Que, the Casual Lounge can be the ideal place for catching a drink before a show or an equally good spot to spend a few hours downing cheap, strong drinks and yukking it up with its colorful cast of regulars, some of whom take advantage of the early-morning happy hour and some who come later in the day. This no-frills, weathered dive also sports a pool table and a Super Chexx bubble hockey game, as well as a dartboard and video games. Read more about Casual Lounge >>

  • Caveau Wine Bar

    Caveau Wine Bar

    450 E.17th Ave. Denver, CO 80203
    303-861-3747 At their worst, wine lists are pompous, stratospherically overpriced, ridiculously long, awkwardly categorized and full of overexposed, yawn-inducing labels. But at Caveau Wine Bar, the 75-bottle list (55 are available by the glass) is an easy-to-navigate document of new discoveries, small producers and familiar but not overrated labels. The polished yet easygoing staff is well-versed in wine education and just as enthusiastic about pushing a $30 bottle of vino as a three-digit one, which is a welcome change to the rigorous sport of upselling. Those prowling for deals know to show up at 4 p.m. for the daily happy hour. Read more about Caveau Wine Bar >>

  • Cecilia

    Cecilia's Martini Bar

    520 S. Main St. Breckenridge, CO 80424
    970-453-2243 While there are live-music venues in downtown Breckenridge, Cecilia’s Martini Bar, which opened in 1995, pretty much has the local dance-club market covered. It's also one of the area’s only martini bars, serving a wide assortment of martinis as well as single-malt Scotch and cognac. DJs spin an eclectic mix of music most nights at Cecilia's, which is divided into three different areas, making it one of the more lively venues in Breckenridge, as well. Read more about Cecilia's Martini Bar >>

  • The Celtic House Pub

    The Celtic House Pub

    16522 Keystone Blvd. Parker, CO 80134
    303-841-5454 Once you step inside the Celtic House Pub, it's fairly easy to forget that you're in a strip mall in Parker, as one of the focal points of the place is a back bar that was built in 1895 by the Brunswick Corporation. The comfy Irish pub's lived-in, friendly feel attracts repeat customers, who come back for a decent selection of brews on tap, including Guinness, Harp, Smithwicks, Kilkenny and Magners. In addition to pub staples like shepherd's pie, fish and chips, and beef and Guinness stew, the Celtic House also serves beef and chicken sliders and wings. Read more about The Celtic House Pub >>

  • Celtic Tavern

    Celtic Tavern

    1801 Blake St. Denver, CO 80202
    303-308-1795 If you're looking for something Irish in LoDo and prefer to avoid the sports-bar crowd, Celtic Tavern might be just the ticket. Eschewing a green-beer motif in favor of decor that incorporates literary works from the Emerald Isle's finest, Celtic Tavern presents a distinct Gaelic theme. With its mahogany-paneled walls and fireplaces, the venue offers a cozy, Welsh-inspired nook and a leather-sofa-filled Scottish room for other bastards of the British Empire. The Celtic, which has fifty imported and domestic brews on tap, as well as boasting the one of the largest whiskey selections in Colorado, also brings live music on the weekends. Go for the drinks. Go for the style. Go for the decor or the camaraderie of fellow drinkers or to get really weird down in those tables where they can't see you from the bar. The last thing to go for is the food.

  • Cervantes

    Cervantes' Masterpiece Ballroom

    2637 Welton St. Denver, CO 80205
    303-297-1772 As the Casino Cabaret, this venue was one of Five Points' legendary jazz clubs, dating back to the '30s, when it brought in such legends as Duke Ellington, Count Basie and Benny Goodman; over the years, folks like B.B. King, Ray Charles and Ike and Tina Turner played there, too. And when the trio behind Quixote's took over the space in 2003, they geared the music more toward Deadheads and jam bands. But when new owners took over again in 2010, they renovated the main floor, added a larger stage, relocated the soundboard and made other improvements. Musically, the focus has shifted more toward dubstep, electronica, hip-hop acts and DJs, along with bluegrass and jam-centric bands. Read more about Cervantes' Masterpiece Ballroom >>

  • Challengers


    12161 E. Iliff Ave. Aurora, CO 80014
    303-750-5558 As the name might suggest, Challenger's is a sports bar, featuring flat-screen LCD TVs liberally adorning the walls so you can cheer on the Broncos, Nuggets, Rockies or Avs -- as well as national and international sports teams -- from all over the venue. The seating is open, affording unobstructed views of the on-screen action, and there are pool tables to occupy patrons during lulls. Challenger's also offers a private patio for smokers and fans of al fresco dining and drinking. If you're hungry, the wings are definitely the best deal here -- especially during happy hour, when they're 30 cents. They come tossed in any of eight different sauces, from Cajun to barbecue to hot to really hot. Read more about Challengers >>

  • Chances


    1523 Market St. Denver, CO 80202
    720-771-6055 Owner Mike Villano (known as Mike V. to most folks), former frontman for the band Chaos Theory, originally opened Chances as a "modern sports bar." When he took over the space in its first incarnation, at 1135 Bannock Street, in 2011, he decided to forgo the traditional sports-bar look and go for something more stylish. A year later, the bar moved to 1320 15th Street, where it had more of a nightclub/lounge feel and occasionally hosted DJs. Now located in the multi-level building at 1523 Market Street, Chances is a full-on nightclub. Read more about Chances >>

  • Charlie Brown

    Charlie Brown's Bar & Grill

    980 Grant St. Denver, CO 80203
    303-860-1655 There are many reasons to go to Charlie Brown's. The place has a lot of history - seventy-odd years of it. The inside bar feels like an archetypal neighborhood joint, and the patio - big, heated in winter - is one of the very few places left in this city where you can have a cigarette with your beers and still feel like you're actually inside. And then there's the kitchen, which does a decent job on a huge menu offering everything from breakfast burritos to a lobster dinner. A corner piano bar is where locals drop by to offer sauced renditions of Tin Pan Alley songs or just consume strong cocktails. Once favored by Jack Kerouac and Neal Cassady, Charlie's now draws one of Denver's most diverse crowds, including art students, career drinkers and singers who turn up for karaoke.

  • Charlie's Web

    8364 Sheridan Blvd. Arvada, CO 80003-6001

  • Chatfield

    Chatfield's Sports Bar & Grill

    5500 S. Simms St. Denver, CO 80217
    303-979-3322 Chatfield's Sports Bar & Grill in Littleton proclaims that it's "Home of the Big Beer," and sure enough, drafts come in huge mugs. The lively sports bar brings in bands on the weekends and poker during the week. Like many spots around town, Chatfield's has a ladies' night, but it also has a guys' night on Sundays that includes specials on well shots, drinks and domestic drafts. The beers aren't the only things that are big here: The grill serves up some big-ass burgers, including pastrami, fried-egg and peanut-butter versions.

  • Cheapskates Action Sports Bar

    Cheapskates Action Sports Bar

    7501 Grandview Ave. Arvada, CO 80002
    303-423-7770 After working in the action-sports industry for years and setting a Guinness World Record for longest journey on a mini-motorcycle, Ryan Galbraith and Chris Stinson have now embarked on a different journey: Cheapskates Actions Sports Bar, which opened May 2011 in the former home of Bliss Cafe, 7501 Grandview Avenue in Arvada. The partners gutted the space and did the construction work themselves to create a bar that celebrates the growing action-sports scene in Colorado, which Galbraith considers a mecca for everything from dirt bikes and mountain bikes to skiing and snowboarding.

  • Cheeky Monk

    Cheeky Monk

    14694 Orchard Parkway Westminster, CO 80023
    303-450-0789 Not only is the Cheeky Monk a destination restaurant for all you European beer snobs looking for unpronounceable brews made by monks who've dedicated their lives to Jesus and zymurgy, but it also happens to be a great place to sample the rather unique cuisine of the Benelux -- all mussels and frites and sausages and some of the best sauerkraut ever made. You can thank the folks who brought us a true Brit pub in Aurora -- the Royal Hilltop -- for this cheeky concept. Read more about Cheeky Monk >>
