El Chapultepec

A downtown landmark since 1933, El Chapultepec is the swinging home to Denver's finest jazz and R&B artists, who command the stage in the tiny club seven nights a week.
Kentucky Inn

Kentucky Inn

A self-proclaimed "Midwest bar," the Kentucky Inn is just one of many small, discreet dives existing in now-posh neighborhoods like West Wash Park.
Skylark Lounge

Skylark Lounge

Don't ask to see the martini specials: The Skylark is for drinkers and dancers, not trendy scenesters.

  • The 1up Colfax

    The 1up Colfax

    717 E. Colfax Ave. Denver, CO 80203
    303-779-6444

    http://www.the-1up.com A year after opening the 1Up, the hot arcade/bar in LoDo, owner Jourdan Adler took over the former home of Pete's Monkey Bar and put his second bar, now called The 1up Colfax, in its place. With more than 35 vintage arcade games, three lanes of Skee-Ball and nine pinball games, the space is on par with its downtown counterpart (now the 1up LoDo). About a year and a half after opening the Colfax location, Adler opened a 500-capacity music venue in the former Kitty's East space next door. Read more about The 1up Colfax >>

  • 3014 Thirty Fourteen

    3014 Thirty Fourteen

    3014 E. Colfax Denver, CO Denver, CO 80206
    303-981-9720

    http://www.thirtyfourteen.com If you didn't already know about it, it would be easy to overlook 3014's best asset: its upstairs patio. Sporting a full bar, benches and umbrellas, it's one of the more inviting spots in the city. But the sidewalk patio and the main bar are also nice. In fact, even though it's on Colfax, 3014 (formerly Senger's) feels more like an upscale LoDo bar. And if you get hungry, Odelay Tacos, which is part of the building, serves a variety of street tacos, specialty tacos and appetizers. Read more about 3014 Thirty Fourteen >>

  • 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.

  • 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.

  • 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 >>

  • 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 >>

  • 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.

  • Bannock Street Garage

    Bannock Street Garage

    1015 Bannock St. Denver, CO 80204
    303-534-7000

    http://www.bannockstreetgarage.com 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. Its garage roots are still evident by the massive door at the front, the cement floors and the large, open patio in the back. The place tends to attract crowds in their mid-twenties to mid-thirties, with celebrations ranging from First Fridays showcasing art to open-mike nights once a month for performers. And if that isn't enough to entertain you, there are plenty of traditional bar games as well, including pool and darts. Read more about Bannock Street Garage >>

  • The Bar Car

    The Bar Car

    819 Colorado Blvd. Denver, CO 80206
    720-524-8099

    http://www.denverbarcar.com As implied by its name, the now-defunct Recovery Room catered mostly to the employees of the ever-disintegrating University of Colorado Hospital campus across the street. When Leigh Jones -- of Horseshoe Lounge and Jonesy's fame -- bought the place, she overhauled it. Completely. The resulting Bar Car is a welcome addition to the East Denver scene. Given the building's rather nondescript front, the dark, rustic interior -- with its wisps of an old-timey railroad theme -- is a pleasant surprise. Also pleasantly surprising, given Colorado Boulevard's penchant for chains, is that the Bar Car is defiantly 'hood-focused, offering a well-curated draft-beer list heavy on locals. Patrons follow suit, whether they're stopping by for the daily happy hour or the deep-dish pizza, checking sports scores, or just soaking up the warm surroundings late at night. Plus, what other bar boasts a naked picture of Burt Reynolds as decoration? Read more about The Bar Car >>

  • Bar Red

    Bar Red

    437 W. Colfax Ave. Denver, CO 80203
    303-573-0223

    http://barreddenver.com/ Cliff Young and his son, Zach, opened the doors of Bar Red in late 2013. But beyond those doors was a stunning renovation of an old stone building at 437 West Colfax Avenue, just around the corner from CY Steaks, which Cliff also runs. More than just a bar and lounge, Bar Red also has a grab-and-go area for breakfast and lunch. In the evening, guests can use the discreet alley entrance to enter the speakeasy-like lower-level bistro for drinks and dinner. Read more about Bar Red >>

  • Barker Lounge

    Barker Lounge

    475 Santa Fe Drive Denver, CO 80204
    303-778-0545

    http://www.barkerlounge.net A self-proclaimed "stray bar," the Barker Lounge attracts a wide array of patrons -- even if the disco balls hanging from the ceiling and the Madonna tunes blaring from the jukebox may suggest otherwise. The humble interior is clean and inviting, with a friendly staff. But the bar's best-kept secret -- and one that smokers will want to know -- is its patio: Shielded from busy Broadway by wooden fence, the deceivingly large wrap-around outdoor room is a cozy spot boasting plants, Christmas lights and a second bar to accommodate crowds in the summer months.

  • Barricuda

    Barricuda's

    1076 Ogden St. Denver, CO 80218
    303-860-8353

    http://www.barricudasdenver.com The main attractions at Barricuda's, a quintessential neighborhood bar, are the prices and the atmosphere, which is laid-back and friendly. The food is greasy-spoon and the menu is expansive for a bar; there are plenty of vegetarian options, and the Sunday brunch is popular and offers just the right type of breakfast spread for fighting a hangover. Plus, Barricuda's serves food late at night, making it a good place to stop for one last drink and some munchies. The clientele reflects the vibe: You won't find a lot of buttoned-down businessmen, club bunnies or frat boys, but you will find regular, neighborly folks enjoying the friendly staff, cheap drinks and typical bar jukebox that's set at just the right volume - loud enough to hear the music, but soft enough to enjoy a conversation with friends.

  • Barry

    Barry's on Broadway

    58 Broadway Denver, CO 80203
    303-722-8489

    Housed in the space formerly occupied by the Skylark Lounge, the comfortable seating and well-broken-in bar top do well to create a comfortable atmosphere. Barry's jukebox selection doesn't quite live up to the Skylark's famed rockabilly list, but this bar creates its own charm with a friendly staff and great food. Its dive-y feel, combined with a classy decor attracts an unpretentious local crowd. Read more about Barry's on Broadway >>

  • The Beach

    1630 Federal Blvd. Denver, CO 80204

    Since Angel's Sports Bar and Restaurant closed in 2009, the space at 1630 Federal -- just behind Sports Authority Field at Mile High -- has gone through several incarnations. After Atmosphere closed in 2013, Jay Bianchi's Dead-centric Donkey OT moved in, and the name soon changed to Dark Star Lounge. In 2014, the Beach took over, turning the place back into a dance club, with bottle service, salsa nights and club nights throughout the week. Read more about The Beach >>

  • Black Sky Brewery

    Black Sky Brewery

    490 Santa Fe Dr. Denver, CO 80204
    720-708-5816

    http://www.blackskybrewing.com In September 2013, Harry Smith, a longtime brewer at Breckenridge Brewery, opened Black Sky Brewery, just a block from his old employer and with Breckenridge's full support. Black Sky, which dishes up Connecticut-style pizza along with its beer, was a long time in the making. As noted on its website, the brewery's 23 taps feature both "in-house and guest brews." There's also a heavy-metal theme to the decor and the beer names. The brewery itself has a seven-barrel brewing system that contains old pieces of equipment from Breckenridge; outside, you'll find a patio, a parking lot and a mural.

  • Blush & Blu

    Blush & Blu

    1526 E. Colfax Ave. Denver, CO 80218
    303-484-8548

    http://www.blushblubar.com In 2012, Blush & Blu moved into the space formerly known as tHERe Coffee Bar & Lounge (hailed as Denver's lesbian Cheers). And while still lesbian-friendly, Blush & Blu puts more of a focus on its “Distinct Drinkery” tag. It’s still a place to get a great cup of coffee or coffee drink, but the bar and lounge also has a decent selection of beers, tinctures, elixirs and shots, as well as martinis and other cocktails. It’s a lively spot on weekends and hosts the occasional open-mic night during the week. Read more about Blush & Blu >>

  • Boyz Town Denver

    Boyz Town Denver

    117 Broadway Denver, CO 80203
    303-722-7373

    http://www.boyztowndenver.com One of Denver's prime spots for male revues, Boyz Town hosts them every day of the week except Mondays, starting at 10 p.m. Essentially a gay bar, the club is also popular for bachelorette parties; as the name implies, the dancers are (for the most part) in their early twenties. Since the space is a bit on the small side, it can fill up fast, leaving little room to move around, but that could be seen as part of its charm. It's also an ideal spot for people-watching.

  • Brendan

    Brendan's Pub

    404 Broadway Denver, CO 80204
    720-627-5374

    http://www.brendans404.com After sixty years, Jerry Feld sold his beloved Club 404, and in February 2012, the place reopened as Denver Wheel Club 404. But that incarnation never really got on a roll, and in November 2012, 404 Broadway changed ownership again. It’s been bought by Kevin Geraghty, owner of the defunct (and still missed) Brendan's Pub, who dubbed the spot Brendan's 404 Pub. Read more about Brendan's Pub >>

  • Broadways

    Broadways

    1027 Broadway Denver, CO 80203
    303-623-0700

    http://www.broadwaysdenver.com A self-proclaimed "community bar," Broadways, which sits just blocks from Civic Center Park, has been a pre- and post-parade destination of spirited Pride festival-goers for the past eight years. But during the rest of the year, the storefront spot is a nondescript hangout for all kinds, with a pool table garnering the most attention and a tiny bungalow of a dance floor sometimes occupied by a DJ. The jukebox can be found blaring everything from Whitney Houston to Queen, but the patrons bellied up to the wooden bar top surrounded by wooden walls don't seem to mind what's playing. Broadways' small interior suits regulars just fine, but the establishment's back patio -- which will see an expansion in the spring -- is the bar's best feature. Picnic tables and umbrellas accommodate bigger summer crowds, and the outside back bar nearly doubles the amount of space. Read more about Broadways >>

  • Caveau Wine Bar

    Caveau Wine Bar

    450 E.17th Ave. Denver, CO 80203
    303-861-3747

    http://www.caveauwinebar.com 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 >>

  • Charlie Brown

    Charlie Brown's Bar & Grill

    980 Grant St. Denver, CO 80203
    303-860-1655

    http://www.charliebrownsbarandgrill.com 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.

  • The Cheeky Monk

    The Cheeky Monk

    534 E. Colfax Ave. Denver, CO 80203
    303-861-0347

    http://www.thecheekymonk.com Can an upscale Belgian beer cafe work on one of the weirdest, wildest stretches of Colfax Avenue? Absolutely. 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 giving Colfax this cheeky concept. Read more about The Cheeky Monk >>

    The Church

    1160 Lincoln St. Denver, CO 80203
    303-832-8628

    http://www.coclubs.com/the-church Stained-glass windows and hundreds of candles spread throughout the Church suggest a pious vibe, but the congregation is as mixed as they come. The roomy Lincoln Street mainstay draws globally hailed DJs, local residents, retro-lovers, even the under-21 set: Sections of the bar are open to those eighteen and up. A rooftop patio affords one of the city's best views. Read more about The Church >>
