Bannock Street Garage

Bannock Street Garage

The Bannock Street Garage didn't pull its name out of thin air: For years, it was a Volkswagen repair shop. That is, until 2004, when it was refit as a bar as divey as anything you'd care to find in the metro area.
Goosetown Tavern

  • Madrid Lounge

    Madrid Lounge

    5127 W. 64th Ave. Arvada, CO 80003
    303-429-9910

    Located next to the Elvis Cinema in the corner of an Arvada strip mall, the Madrid Lounge got its start back in the '70s, when it used to bring in bands. The kitchen still turns out Chinese and American food (despite the name, you won't find any tapas here), which makes this cozy suburban spot a good choice for a drink, a meal, some music -- or all of the above.

  • Magnet Inn

    Magnet Inn

    2893 S. Broadway Englewood, CO 80113
    303-781-5262

    It's a bit hard to gauge what's beyond the darkly tinted front windows, but this nondescript Englewood dive has a pretty cool interior. Although the walls are lined with photos of Denver sports legends, it's not your typical sports bar with TVs blasting; you're more likely to hear some of the regulars talking about local teams. The Gothic Theatre sits just a few blocks south; the Magnet's friendly bartenders, cheap yet strong drinks, pool tables and dartboards make it an ideal spot for catching a pre- or post-show drink.

  • Mahogany Ridge Brewery & Grill

    Mahogany Ridge Brewery & Grill

    435 Lincoln Ave. Steamboat Springs, CO 80487
    970-879-3773

    http://www.mahoganyridgesteamboat.com The Mahogany Ridge Brewery & Grill which opened in 2003 in the former home of the Steamboat Springs Brewery & Tavern in downtown Steamboat Springs ― prides itself on its handcrafted beers, but the spot also has a menu whose offerings rise several notches above standard pub fare, including mahi, mahi fish tacos, tuna ceviche, a build-your-own satay platter and sandwich plates. The outdoor patio is ideal in the warmer months and the interior is cozy and classy. The Mahongany also has one of the better happy-hour menus in the area.

  • Majestic Saloon

    Majestic Saloon

    3140 S. Parker Road Aurora, CO 80014
    303-695-4478

    The Majestic Saloon somehow feels larger than the modest space it occupies in a strip mall off Parker Road. There's a lot packed into the place: pool tables, a jukebox, a shuffleboard table and a small stage that hosts weekly karaoke sessions and occasional live performances. The bar's menu is equally ambitious and boasts a relatively wide array of Mexican dishes, appetizers and standard bar staples at reasonable prices. The place draws a largely local crowd, visitors from the nearby suburban Aurora neighborhoods who lend the Majestic a casual, relaxed feel. While it also pulls in an occasional biker or rowdy crowd on weekends, at its heart it feels like a calm, predictable neighborhood bar. Read more about Majestic Saloon >>

  • Malone's Clubhouse Grill

    14455 W. 64th Ave. Arvada, CO 80004-3538

  • Maloney

    Maloney's Tavern

    1432 Market St. Denver, CO 80202
    303-825-1990

    http://www.facebook.com/maloneysdenver Maloney's Tavern is part of a western chain that also has locations in California, Arizona and New Mexico; this LoDo link opened in 2007. Although it's a great sports bar, it's also a decent place to settle in for a long night of dining and dishing with friends. The slightly elevated dining room is full of comfortable, round booths that make conversation easy, and the inexpensive menu makes ordering easy. One side lists entrees; the other side is a full page of $5 items. A club sandwich that comes with a pound of French fries? Just $5. "The Schmitter," a sliced rib-eye sandwich smothered in provolone, grilled onions and Thousand Island dressing, again served with fries, is only $5. And for another $5, a basket of chicken wings will fly out of the kitchen and land on your table. Wash everything down with one of the many beers on tap or a selection from the lengthy list of spirits. Read more about Maloney's Tavern >>

  • Mario

    Mario's Double Daughter's Salotto

    1632 Market St. Denver, CO 80202
    303-623-3523

    http://www.doubledaughters.com The tables and bar stools look like they've been dipped in candle wax, and there's a giant synthetic tree -- complete with flying birds -- that branches out in the middle of the room at Mario's Double Daughter's Salotto. Intimate, dark and mysterious, the Salotto is a sensory treat that could easily find its way into a Tim Burton or David Lynch movie. There's a pleasant happy hour, as well as progressive DJs most nights of the week (the volume is usually low enough for patrons to converse without yelling). This is one of the few spots in LoDo where you can walk through the doors and completely forget you’re in Denver. Read more about Mario's Double Daughter's Salotto >>

  • Marisela

    Marisela's Night Club

    3900 Pecos St. Denver, CO 80211
    303-477-3487

    Marisela's Night Club in northwest Denver has long been a popular venue for hearing authentic live Latin music, including salsa, mariachi and banda, from mostly local acts. Not surprisingly, the dance floor at this lively spot can sometimes get so crowded that it's tough to move, especially on weekends. On Sundays, Marisela's offers free food and entertainment.

  • The Matador

    The Matador

    3496 W. 32nd Ave. Denver, CO 80211
    303-561-2855

    http://matadordenver.com/ This wood-paneled Highland cantina is the latest outpost of a Seattle-based Tex-Mex operation that made its name providing a good time along with its nachos and margaritas. But Matador's tumbleweed-kickin' flavors are more suited to the streets of San Antonio than to the Pacific Northwest. The expected flavors are all here, from hefty taco plates to deep-fried delights like chiles rellenos. Hundreds of tequila varieties and hand-painted animal skulls adorn the walls, shoring up Matador's Tex-Mex credentials. Read more about The Matador >>

  • The Matchbox

    The Matchbox

    2625 Larimer St. Denver, CO 80205
    720-437-9100

    http://www.matchboxdenver.com The Matchbox's name was inspired partly by a fire that gutted the space in 2009, and partly by the fact that it's long and narrow like a matchbox. Sudhir Kudva, who also owns the Squire Lounge, partnered up with two other folks and overhauled the former Orange Cat Studios, demolished the back of the building to make way for a large patio, put in new bathrooms and installed a garage door in the front. While the place has been updated considerably, it still retains some of the Orange Cat's charm, like the exposed brick on the south wall. With three live-music venues within a block, the Matchbox focuses more on being a neighborhood watering hole than on bringing in live entertainment. There are a number of local beers on tap and a decent selection of cocktails, as well. Read more about The Matchbox >>

  • Maya Sports Bar & Grill

    Maya Sports Bar & Grill

    455 Havana St. Aurora, CO 80010
    303-360-7271

    Considering its tropical theme, the Maya Sports Bar and Grill occupies an unlikely spot in north Aurora. Sitting in front of the abandoned Fan Fare building, the Maya does its best to stand apart from its somewhat colorless surroundings, with its brightly colored tropical signs and its constant schedule of live DJs spinning Latino pop. With a standard bar selection and a menu marked by Central American and Mexican cuisine, the Maya offers an ideal spot to dance to Latin American music and take advantage of great beer specials.

  • McCabe

    McCabe's Bistro & Pub

    6100 S. Main St. Aurora, CO 80016
    303-627-6234

    http://www.mccabesbistroandpub.com It's easy to get disoriented at McCabe's Irish Pub, and the bar's sprawling, two-story layout is only partly responsible for that effect. The painstaking attention paid to Irish authenticity in McCabe's food and drink menu is what's truly dizzying. From delectable dishes like shepherd's pie and fish and chips to hard-to-find brews like Kilkenny Cream Stout, the menu shoots for Gaelic purity at every level. Beyond the menu, McCabe's owners have worked hard to distinguish the bar's ambience from its setting in the Southlands shopping mall. With hardwood bars on both levels and massive portraits of Irish literary giants like Wilde and Yeats keeping watch over the bar's booths, it's easy to feel transported. What's more, with the proximity of Buckley Air Force Base, the bar draws a rich variety of regulars, including British ex-pats looking for a taste of home. Read more about McCabe's Bistro & Pub >>

  • McCabe

    McCabe's Tavern

    520 S. Tejon St. Colorado Springs, CO 80903
    719-633-3300

    http://www.mccabestavern.com A friendly Irish pub, McCabe’s Tavern boasts one of the largest selections of and imported beers tap in Colorado Springs, and it also serves 23 different whiskeys. The lively spot has some sort of event happening most nights of the week, whether it be live music, trivia or European football broadcasts. Its extensive Irish menu includes items like corned beef and cabbage, fish and chips, Guinness lamb stew, shepherd’s pie, and bangers and mash. Read more about McCabe's Tavern >>

  • McCarthy

    McCarthy's Sports Bar & Grill

    15350 E. Smoky Hill Road Aurora, CO 80015
    303-693-4500

    http://www.mccarthysbng.com Wandering around McCarthy's Bar and Grill can be disorienting. The spacious bar and restaurant, located in the Smoky Hill neighborhood of eastern Aurora, has a lot going on: There's the large dance floor, the walk-up bar and restaurant section, and a front dining room that doubles as a Texas Hold 'Em poker space several times during the week. In keeping with its theme as an intimate Irish-style pub, the owners have included nods to the Emerald Isle on their menu: The Irish Nachos run less than $10. The rest of the food and drink menu comprises standard bar fare, regular happy hours and staples that include hamburgers, Mexican plates and appetizers under $15. The bar tends to attract an older, adult crowd from the nearby suburbs, but live rock shows on Fridays bring in younger patrons. Read more about McCarthy's Sports Bar & Grill >>

  • McDonough

    McDonough's Irish Pub

    10395 E. Iliff Ave. Denver, CO 80247
    303-369-9819

    http://www.myspace.com/mcdonoughspub McDonough's Irish Pub is more of a well-worn dive than a typical Irish pub. But in keeping with a dive, McDonough's serves some of the cheapest drinks in this section of Aurora near the intersection of Parker Road and Iliff Avenue. One half of the bar has a pool table and dartboards, while the other half is where the heavy drinking goes down. It also has a decent-sized smoking patio. There's usually live music on the weekends and Texas Hold 'Em on Sundays and Wednesdays. Read more about McDonough's Irish Pub >>

  • McKinners Pizza Bar

    McKinners Pizza Bar

    2389 W. Main St. Littleton, CO 80120
    303-798-8500

    http://www.mckinners.com While McKinners, in downtown Littleton, is a decent spot to eat pizza, especially the PBR Salute, it’s also an affable neighborhood watering hole. The place serves a wide selection of Colorado-centric beers, including a number of local microbrews, and its wine list is extensive as well. McKinners also serves gluten-free beers and cider as well as gluten-free and vegetarian pizza. If pizza isn’t your thing, the menu also includes sandwiches, salads and appetizers.

  • Mead Street Station

    Mead Street Station

    3625 W. 32nd Ave. Denver, CO 80211
    303-433-2138

    http://www.meadststation.com A rowdy restaurant/bar in northwest Denver, Mead St. Station's biggest draw is probably its reasonably priced food and decent array of microbrews and top-shelf liquor; on weekends, the bar is crammed with happy imbibers. But music is also on the menu several nights a week, with acoustic, cover, jazz and R&B bands working a window-side stage area. Read more about Mead Street Station >>

  • Meadowlark

    Meadowlark

    2701 Larimer St. Denver, CO 80205
    303-293-0251

    http://www.meadowlarkbar.com Although it's a basement space, the Meadowlark features soft, tasteful lighting and a well-appointed interior that makes you forget you're belowground. The intimate spot is well suited to singer-songwriters and acoustic acts who thrive in small places, where they can better connect with the audience, and while it's a go-to spot for both indie-rock frontmen playing rare acoustic sets and louder groups, it’s also a great place to see up-and-coming acts during weekly open-mic nights and outstanding players during its weekly jazz jams.

  • Merchants Mile High Saloon

    Merchants Mile High Saloon

    2014 S. University Blvd. Denver, CO 80210
    303-722-9880

    The Border had long been a popular watering hole in the University of Denver neighborhood, though it went through some dry spells -- and then dried up altogether in May 2012. A trio of new owners, two of whom run Merchants Saloon in Oakland, California, recently took over the space and have reopened as Merchants Mile High Saloon. And although the new owners wanted the place to have more of a "dark and sexy" club feel than a casual sports-bar atmosphere, Merchants will show games when they're on.

  • Mercury Cafe

    Mercury Cafe

    2199 California St. Denver, CO 80205
    303-294-9258

    http://www.mercurycafe.com For thirty years now, Marilyn Megenity has hosted the town's most eclectic party at the Mercury Cafe, her club/cafe/community gathering place. Today it's an institution known as much for its enlightening entertainment options - plays, poetry slams, tango dancing - as it is for its healthy hippie fare. Whether vegan or carnivore, libertarian or commie, everyone feels at home at the Merc. A restaurant, dance club, music venue and speakeasy, the Mercury Cafe is in an orbit of its own, hosting everything from lindy hop lessons to poetry readings, high teas and Green Party meetings. Rock-and-roll shows were axed years ago, but classical, jazz, avant-garde and singer-songwriter performances still go on in the Merc's three baroque rooms. Every cultural subset can find something at the Merc, the embodiment of Denver eclecticism. Read more about Mercury Cafe >>

  • Mezcal

    Mezcal

    3230 E. Colfax Ave. Denver, CO 80206
    303-322-5219

    http://www.mezcalcolorado.com There's magic in Mezcal's off-hours, when it's just a quiet little neighborhood spot for simple, traditional Tijuana street food in a comfy-funky atmosphere. Friday night? That's different. That's when the kids come -- backflow from the Bluebird Theater and shock troops of the local hipsterati in their weekend best -- and crowd the bar. Here, lucha libre fighters plaster the walls, and there are more tequila choices than you can shake a tamale at. The late-night menu certainly is an attraction, with a moonlit happy hour famous for more than just beer. After dinner, the folks bellying up are, as is typical along this stretch, on the younger, hipper side of things. There's also a decent amount of traffic before and after (and during set breaks from) shows at the Bluebird Theater, which is across the street. Mezcal's kitchen keeps going until 1 a.m., and after 10 p.m. it bangs out tacos at a dollar a pop in a kind of reverse happy hour that keeps the area jumping 'til long after most decent folk have gone to bed.

  • MGM's Restaurant & Lounge

    4801 Morrison Road Denver, CO 80219-2236
    303-922-4265

    Essentially an intimate Southwest Denver lounge during the week, MGM's can fill up quickly on the weekends, when it's more of a dance club. Sundays are also a popular nights at MGM's, which has been open for three decades and attracts a predominantly Latino crowd. Read more about MGM's Restaurant & Lounge >>

  • Mike

    Mike's Tavern

    2301 S. Broadway Denver, CO 80210
    720-287-1403

    When Len & Bill's went dark after fifty years in March 2010, Denver lost one of its great dives, in addition to being one of the dingiest joints in town. But after new owner Mike Keeney took over the space, he did a major overhaul on the small space, added a patio in back and added some of his own personality to the place. After opening it as Mike's Tavern in July, 2011, the bar still attracts a fair amount of Len & Bill's regulars as well a new set of neighborhood folks who might have been scared to go in the dimly-lit dive in the past.

  • Milk

    Milk

    1037 Broadway Denver, CO 80203
    303-534-0222

    http://www.coclubs.com/milk When Rock Island closed in 2006 after a long, legendary run, it left a big hole in the gothic and industrial communities. And while there are still rumors that the Island will start up again one day, it's probably not going to happen anytime soon. In the meantime, for those who frequented the legendary 15th Street club, there's a good chance you'll run into somebody you know at Milk on Wednesdays and Saturdays, when the club hosts '80s & '90s Retro/Goth nights. Resident DJ Mike Rich spins a thoroughly decent set of new wave from the Reagan era, with a bit of old-school goth thrown in; Paul Italiano, FashioNation owner, spins at the club once a month. (Both Rich and Italiano are former Rock Island DJs.) While Milk, with its Clockwork Orange theme, is a bit small, it's still a great spot to get your retro dance on and hang with a fascinating mix of folks, some decked out in full goth regalia.
