Bannock Street Garage

Once a Volkswagen repair shop, Bannock Street Garage's roots are still evident by the massive door at the front, the cement floors and the large, open patio in the back.

  • DADA Art Bar

    DADA Art Bar

    2470 Broadway Denver, CO 80205
    720-350-4716

    http://dadaartbar.com DADA Art Bar owner Iain Chisholm says he opened his art gallery/coffeehouse/bar with the intention of it being the neighborhood treehouse – the go-to spot for hanging out and having fun in a comfortable and entertaining environment. And while DADA has exhibits that change monthly, it's more than just a gallery of wall art. There are performance artists of all kinds, art battles in which two artists duel in live-painting showdowns, DJ nights, jazz trios, and weekly talent shows featuring poets, singers and storytellers. The spot is a coffeehouse by day; at night you'll find cocktails, wine and beer, along with "globally influenced" charcuterie plates and cheeseboards. Read more about DADA Art Bar >>

  • The Dam Grille

    The Dam Grille

    8000 E. Quincy Ave. Denver, CO 80237-2320
    303-779-0805

    http://www.thedamgrille.com/page2.html Situated in a strip mall not far from Cherry Creek Reservoir, the Dam Grille is pretty damn serious about sports, boasting more than a dozen HD TVs and a 100-inch projector screen within its confines. There's a horseshoe-shaped bar in the good-sized room, along with plenty of seating for those watching a game. That bar has 24 beers on tap, and the food menu includes appetizers such as quesadillas and bacon-stuffed jalapeños as well as soups, salads, burgers, sandwiches and Mexican dishes. The Dam also brings in live music occasionally. Read more about The Dam Grille >>

  • Darcy

    Darcy's Bistro & Pub

    4955 S. Ulster St. Denver, CO 80237
    303-770-0477

    http://www.darcysbistroandpub.com Located in an upscale DTC strip mall, Darcy's Irish Pub and Bistro is a chic eatery/Irish-pub hybrid that caters to an after-work crowd. Three seating areas complement the social atmosphere: a dark wood bar (with the requisite Irish ales and whiskeys on tap), a dining area with tables and booths, and a cozy library in the back.

  • Dark Horse Bar & Grill

    Dark Horse Bar & Grill

    2922 Baseline Road Boulder, CO 80303
    303-442-8162

    http://www.darkhorsebar.com Locals and tourists alike have flocked to this Boulder institution - a huge yet divey space filled with kitschy items, antiques and movie props - since it first opened its doors in 1975. The burgers are the thing to order here, especially during the Dark Horse's legendary, long-running "Burger Madness" on Tuesdays, Thursdays and Sundays, when five bucks gets you a hamburger or cheeseburger plus fries, salad or pasta salad. If you feel adventurous, try the Jiffy Burger (peanut butter, bacon and provolone); if you're a little more cautious, go for the Avocado Burger (avocado, green chiles, sour cream and pepper Jack). There are other menu options, too, including the roast pork sandwich (pulled pork and BBQ sauce on a toasted roll) and Buffalo wings. Take note: The kitchen is self-serve, so you'll need to place your order at the service window. There are plenty of distractions, from karaoke to live music to watching the game on one of eleven HDTVs or on the projection TV in the back bar. And the wacky decor (including mens' and ladies' room signs designed to confuse the inattentive) is a sure conversation-starter. Read more about Dark Horse Bar & Grill >>

  • Davie

    Davie's Locker

    8845 Lowell Blvd. Westminster, CO 80030
    303-429-0096

    With its pseudo-adobe exterior, Davie's Locker looks like a dive you might find in downtown Albuquerque and not necessarily in Westminster. There's a yellow sign outside that reads, "You're entering the twilight zone." Indeed, Davies can put your head in a bit of a haze if you're looking to get your drink on. The place has been around for more than three decades, and in case you forget, the bar is inundated with beers signs, mirrors and flags to remind you. Some of the regulars might be a bit rough around the edges, but that's part of the place's charm. Depending on what your definition of "twilight zone" is, this could be your nirvana.

  • Dazzle Restaurant & Lounge

    Dazzle Restaurant & Lounge

    930 Lincoln St. Denver, CO 80203
    303-839-5100

    http://www.dazzlejazz.com In business for more than fifteen years, Dazzle has secured its spot as the premier place for jazz in Denver. But it's not just here that the club's been praised: DownBeat magazine listed it as one of the top 100 jazz clubs in the world ― and with good reason. The level of talent that's brought in week after week is unmatched in these parts. In the last year alone, Dazzle has hosted Joe Lovano, Esperanza Spalding, the Bad Plus, Vijay Iyer, Kurt Elling and the stellar trio of Ron Miles, Bill Frisell and Brian Blade. To top it all off, the lounge's walls are acoustically treated, so the sound is top-notch, and sight-wise, there's not a bad seat in the house. And Dazzle is more than just a jazz club; it's also a great local watering hole, renowned for the martinis offered at the comfortable bar. The late-afternoon and late-night happy hours feature a roster of dishes -- including a terrific bar burger, pizzas and salads -- that are enough to make a meal. But the main menu is also worthy of note, with its famous four-cheese macaroni and other favorites. Read more about Dazzle Restaurant & Lounge >>

  • Delaney

    Delaney's Pub

    1801 Blake St. Denver, CO 80202
    303-308-1795

    http://www.celtictavern.com/modules/wfchannel/ Attached to the Celtic Tavern, Delaney's Bar is a bit more relaxed than its neighbor next door. While elements of the Celtic Tavern might scream "Irish pub," Delaney's whispers it. Delaney's is the more spacious of the two, making it an easy fix if the Celtic is packed. Both places sport leather chairs and fireplaces, but you can sink into one of the chairs at Delaney's and light up, as Delaney's is one of the few cigar-friendly spots in LoDo and has a decent cigar selection. The place also sports a mini bowling alley, dart boards and live music on the weekends. Read more about Delaney's Pub >>

  • Deno

    Deno's 6 & 85 Restaurant & Lounge

    5555 Colorado Blvd. Commerce City, CO 80022-3741
    303-295-7672

    A historic Commerce City landmark, Deno's 6 & 85 Restaurant & Lounge (located near Highways 6 and 85) has been a mainstay for truckers since 1947. While flame-grilled steaks are popular menu items at this diner, Deno's also serves a number of dishes made from scratch, including New Mexican staples such as enchiladas, tacos, tostadas and red and green chile.

  • Denver Beer Co.

    Denver Beer Co.

    1695 Platte St. Denver, CO 80202
    303-433-2739

    http://www.denverbeerco.com Like its name, Denver Beer Co. is simple and straightforward. The owners, Charlie Berger and Patrick Crawford, aren't trying to reinvent the wheel; they just want to make great beer. But you'll rarely find the same beer there twice, as Berger and Crawford are constantly coming up with new recipes for a wide variety of styles, all of which they make in their seven-barrel brewhouse. Also on the menu at the 3,400-square-foot spot, which includes an outdoor biergarten with long tables: big Bavarian-style pretzels with dipping sauces. Read more about Denver Beer Co. >>

  • The Denver Eagle

    The Denver Eagle

    1475 36th St. Denver, CO 80205
    303-291-0250

    http://www.theeaglebar.com The Denver Eagle is a massive club inside an old warehouse space just north of LoDo. Opened in May 2006, the venue regularly hosts special events, including underwear parties, foam Fridays and Black-Eyed Balls; Broncos games and DJs, as well as drink deals, are prominently featured on the regular schedule. The handle on the front door gives a good clue to the gay leather-bar nature of the Eagle, whose atmosphere is best experienced on the large patio with ample stadium seating.

  • Denver Improv

    Denver Improv

    8246 E. 49th Ave. Denver, CO 80238
    303-307-1777

    http://www.improv.com Nestled in the fictional-feeling Stapleton neighborhood, Improv Denver is the premier (and perhaps only) comedy club in the northeastern part of the city. The chain brings food together with standup, offering a full menu -- cleverly sectioned off with appetizers as "opening acts," entrees as "headliners" and so on -- of everything from sweet-potato fries and quesadillas to chicken salads and tortellini, served during shows by request. The Improv's front area is dominated by large windows and a bar with a handful of tables, plus a quaint fireplace in the corner. The club's calendar features both up-and-coming and established comedians, performing several day- and week-long stints. Venue hours vary, depending on events. Read more about Denver Improv >>

  • The Denver Wrangler

    The Denver Wrangler

    1700 Logan St. Denver, CO 80203
    303-837-1075

    http://www.denverwrangler.com In the gay community, big, hairy guys are sometimes referred to as "bears." While the Denver Wrangler is one of the city's main bear haunts (and you're bound to see quite a few, some in leather and some wearing Western wear) the place attracts a lot of other guys, especially on the weekends and during its legendary Sunday beer busts, which feature all-you-can-drink Bud Lights from 4 to 8 p.m. The Wrangler's game room has dartboards, arcade games and pool tables, and DJs spin on Saturdays, with rotating themes including high-energy bear dance parties on the second and fourth Saturday of the month. The party spills out onto the outdoor patio during warmer months. Read more about The Denver Wrangler >>

  • Derby Grille

    Derby Grille

    110 Bunyan Ave. Berthoud, CO 80513
    970-532-0986

    http://www.derbygrille.com Since opening in 1995, the Berthoud-based Derby Grille has been a draw for a friendly set of regulars, and for bikers who stop there on summer runs. The colorful dive serves cheap drinks, but it also boasts some of the best burgers in the area, as well as a good selection of appetizers, salads, sandwiches and pizzas. The Derby is also a favorite nightlife spot, especially during its weekly karaoke nights and when it hosts live music. Read more about Derby Grille >>

  • Devon

    Devon's Pub

    4992 E. Hampden Ave. Denver, CO 80222
    303-756-5507

    http://www.devonspub.com In 2001, Devon's made the change from cigar shop to cigar shop and classy pub. The establishment shortened its humidor to make space for imbibing patrons but left plenty of good cigar choices for customers to enjoy. One of the few smoking lounges left in town, Devon's offers a fine selection of stogies, and with tobacco experts on hand, even the junior puffer will easily find an enjoyable smoke. The pub's monthly cigar-tasting event has enthusiasts from all over flowing through the space. From the ample-sized outdoor patio to the handcrafted cherry-wood bar to the multiple pool tables, Devon's Pub has something for the aficionado in all of us. Read more about Devon's Pub >>

  • DIA Beer Garden

    8500 Pena Boulevard Denver, CO 80249

  • Diamond Cabaret & Steakhouse

    Diamond Cabaret & Steakhouse

    1222 Glenarm Place Denver, CO 80202
    303-571-4242

    http://www.vcgh.com/diamond.aspx The Diamond Cabaret is the epitome of a gentlemen's club, with high-end drinks and dancers, and a staff that treats the 35 to 50-year-old crowd with respect. It hosts countless benefits throughout the year, as well as specialty nights of all shapes and sizes, bringing in DJs from across the U.S. to keep the party bumping. While the main floor is 21-and-up, there's a club for the 18+ crowd upstairs, and a VIP section in the rear for those who'd like a little privacy. Read more about Diamond Cabaret & Steakhouse >>

  • Dillinger

    Dillinger's Food & Spirits

    1202 Centaur Village Drive Lafayette, CO 80026
    303-666-6979

    http://www.dillingersfoodandspirits.com Although named after the famous bank robber John Dillinger, who was gunned down by police in 1934, this Lafayette spot is much more of a sports bar a speakeasy. Sure, there are a fair amount of photos of the Dillinger hung around the neighborhood watering hole, but they're almost overshadowed by the neon beer and Broncos signs. While it's not a bad place to catch a game, Dillinger's also brings in live bands on Fridays and hosts karaoke on Wednesdays and Saturdays. Read more about Dillinger's Food & Spirits >>

  • Dillon Dam Brewery

    Dillon Dam Brewery

    100 Little Dam St. Dillon, CO 80435
    970-262-7777

    http://www.dambrewery.com One of the larger brewpubs in the country, Dillon Dam Brewery serves handcrafted ales and lagers, and brews about 2,000 barrels a year. While the spot prides itself on award-winning beer (the brewery has won numerous awards), it also has a decent wine list, including organic options. During the winter and summer seasons, the Dillon Dam brings in live bands on a weekly basis. The American-style restaurant serves lunch and dinner, along with brunch on the weekends; the menu includes burgers, sandwiches, wraps, pasta and pub dinners. Read more about Dillon Dam Brewery >>

  • The Dirty Duck Bar

    The Dirty Duck Bar

    4780 E. Evans Ave. Denver, CO 80222
    303-758-3667

    http://www.dirtyduckbar.com From the looks of this friendly neighborhood dive, it's hard to imagine the place having anything to do with Shakespeare. But the bar's name was actually inspired by a pub in Stratford-upon-Avon, Shakespeare's old stomping ground. It's a far cry from a traditional pub - Denver's Dirty Duck is more of a low-key sports bar that serves cheap drinks and offers a number of weekly specials. With a slightly older crowd, the bar is a nice alternative to the DU bars further west on Evans Avenue. Although the menu is a bit on the short side, the spot does serve burgers, pizza and sandwiches. Read more about The Dirty Duck Bar >>

  • The Dive Bar & Grill

    The Dive Bar & Grill

    11810 W Colfax Ave. Lakewood, CO 80215
    303-232-9873

    http://www.thedivebardenver.com Although the Dive Bar's website claims that it's "not just another hole in the wall," the Lakewood joint, which was once home to the County Cork Bar & Lounge, definitely has a lived-in vibe. But drinks are cheap; live music, karaoke, pool leagues and trivia are offered on a weekly basis; and most everything on the menu is homemade and cooked fresh. The house specialty is brick-oven, hand-tossed pizza. Read more about The Dive Bar & Grill >>

  • The Dive Inn

    The Dive Inn

    1380 S. Broadway Denver, CO 80210
    720-242-6157

    http://www.diveinndenver.com Denver's longest-running gay bar, BJ's Carousel, closed in 2011 after a three-decade-plus run. The South Broadway spot was then gutted and remodeled, reopening in 2012 as the Dive Inn. The new bar's nautical theme was inspired by the owner's numerous trips as a teenager to Cozumel, where he opened a dive shop after high school. At the Dive Inn, photos from deep-sea fishing trips share space in the back room with foosball and pool tables and a second bar. The place also sports a taqueria and 2,500 square feet of patio space.

    Doc's Pub & Grill

    10890 E Dartmouth Ave. Denver, CO 80014
    303-671-5324

    http://www.docspubandgrill.com Located in a strip mall near the Kennedy Golf Course, Doc's Pub and Grill prides itself on its Crack Burger, a half-pound patty with diced hatch green chili smothered in Swiss-American cheese between two slices of lightly buttered Texas Toast. While it's a doozy of a burger, Doc's also serves other sandwiches and a number of different appetizers. Sure, Doc's is good spot for bar grub, there's usually a fun set of regulars who come down to watch a game or sing karaoke three nights a week. Read more about Doc's Pub & Grill >>

  • Don

    Don's Club Tavern

    723 E. 6th Ave. Denver, CO 80203

    http://www.donsclubtavern.com Don's Club Tavern, one of Denver's longest-surviving dive bars, got a bit of a facelift after the bar's namesake died and the folks behind the Little Pub Company took it over in 2005. And while most of the decor and a lot of the old charm are still intact -- as are some of the serious-about-their-drinking regulars -- it also got a few improvements, such as a big garage door facing Sixth Avenue that opens for warm weather; more booths and tables with stools; a back-patio-length green paint job, aluminum roof and industrial heater; high-def flat-screen televisions; Golden Tee and Silver Strike video games; and touch-screen point-of-sale registers.

  • Dougherty

    Dougherty's Neighborhood Restaurant and Pub

    5 E. Ellsworth Denver, CO 80209
    303-777-5210

    http://www.doughertysrestaurant.com Dougherty's is a neighborhood pub that caters to the entire neighborhood - the young and the old, the hip and the square, the firemen, the drunks and the industry people. It's kid-friendly, pet-friendly, family-friendly and drunk-friendly, with cheap lunches all day and happy-hour specials at the bar. The tenders here pour some of the strongest drinks in the entire city, and when the time comes for soaking up that firewater, Dougherty's also has an excellent pub kitchen, a nice dining room separated from the bar, and a menu that's better than you'd expect. Just past the small front patio sits a cozy three-room pub serving up typical Irish food and drink (think Guinness paired with bangers and mash) along with the not-so traditional (like a prosciutto-and-cheese creation called "Leprechaun Lollipops"). Brunch is also a big draw for the pub, offering the usual egg-centered fare plus sweeter items such as French toast. For the most part, Dougherty's feels like a nice, neighborhood bar perfect for a pint. Read more about Dougherty's Neighborhood Restaurant and Pub >>
