Candlelight Tavern

Candlelight Tavern

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.
The Matchbox

The Matchbox

With three live-music venues within a block, the Matchbox focuses more on being a neighborhood watering hole than on bringing in live entertainment.
Renegade Brewing

Renegade Brewing

The 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.

  • The Compound

    The Compound

    145 Broadway Denver, CO 80203
    303-722-7977

    http://www.compounddenver.com Open from 7 a.m. to 2 a.m. seven days a week, 365 days a year, the Compound's corner-bar (and gay-bar) legacy is just that: a twenty-plus-year run as a drinking place that barely closes. Weekday patrons start rolling in from hospital night shifts to take advantage of the early opening (and a 7 a.m. happy hour), while rowdier nighttime crowds looking to dance come later to shut the bar down. Bold purple walls and black plastic-tiled floors run throughout the front room, where a small bar services pool- and darts-playing patrons and those looking to socialize in the newly renovated tall vinyl booths. Just through a cavernous opening sits a giant wooden dance floor with a DJ booth perched high above, and Friday nights find the space wall-to-wall with sweaty bodies filing in from a line that often forms around the south Broadway building. Just outside of the dance room's glass doors is a smoking patio, heated in the fall and winter months for year-round use. The only odd accoutrement of the Compound is its wall of lockers for personal item storage. Read more about this Denver bar or club >>

  • Cuba Cuba Cafe & Bar

    Cuba Cuba Cafe & Bar

    1173 Delaware St. Denver, CO 80204
    303-605-2822

    http://www.cubacubacafe.com Kristy Socarras Bigelow, who opened Cuba Cuba in the heart of the Golden Triangle in 2001, is a poster child for the American Dream. A Cuban-American from Miami whose family didn’t allow her to go to college – “Cuban moms are strict,” she explains – and who had little restaurant experience, she decided to create a Cuban-influenced eatery in two little conjoined Victorian houses. The colorful Cuba Cuba quickly became a seductive hot spot, a go-to place for strong mojitos, fried plaintain chips and big plates of roast pork, along with other dishes based on her family’s recipes. A decade later, Socarras Bigelow opened a fast-casual sandwich-shop spinoff in Boulder: Cuba Cuba Sandwicheria. A third spot, a new and improved Cuba Cuba Sandwicheria, opened in 2013 in Glendale’s CitySet development – and there are plans for more. “Every neighborhood needs Cuban cuisine,” says Socarras Bigelow. And so far, Denver diners clearly agree. Read more about this Denver bar or club >>

  • 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 this Denver bar or club >>

  • 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 this Denver bar or club >>

  • 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.

  • Dulce Vida

    Dulce Vida

    1201 Cherokee Street Denver, CO 80204
    303-954-8665

    In early 2013, Dulce Vida moved into the Golden Triangle space left vacant by the Cherokee Grill, which closed after a 28-year-run. Jason Tietjen, of the Dive Inn, bought the building with partners and transformed it into a place that Tietjen says walks the walks the fine line between bar and restaurant. Although when it comes down to it, Dulce Vida is currently more of a neighborhood bar than a restaurant, complete with giant TVs and games, the owners don't take short cuts with the food.

  • The Fainting Goat

    The Fainting Goat

    846 Broadway Denver, CO 80203
    303-945-2323

    http://www.thefaintinggoatpub.com The Fainting Goat took over a building on Broadway that's been a half-dozen restaurants and bars over the years, giving it a good cleaning, fixing the elevator and introducing a menu with an Irish accent. But the best innovation so far has been the bar added to the rooftop patio, which saves the servers (or customers) from having to run down three flights of stairs every time they need another round. And not only does this secluded sky-high spot offer a lovely view of the mountains, but it has wi-fi and ashtrays, since this patio is definitely far enough from the front entrance for smoking to be legal. Not only is this the best rooftop patio in Denver, but it could also be the best place to find your employees playing hooky. The Goat serves up a kind of Irish-American mixed bag of burgers and sandwiches, chicken wings and fingers, inexpensive steaks, "Irish Nachos" (covered in corned beef, natch) and lunchtime fish-and-chips specials.

  • Goosetown Tavern

    Goosetown Tavern

    3242 E. Colfax Ave. Denver, CO 80206
    303-399-9703

    http://www.goosetowntavern.com Located across the street from the Bluebird Theater, the Goosetown Tavern draws beer drinkers, pool players and music fans from the East Colfax corridor and beyond. It also pulls a loyal crowd for lunch and dinner. With a fresh-feeling selection of salads, sandwiches and appetizers, the Goose's menu is several cuts above standard pub fare. House-made soups and a fun selection of pizzas are tasty complements to the Tavern's revolving selection of craft, micro-brewed and regional beers. Daily happy-hour specials are another reason to visit this reliable, neighborly staple. Read more about this Denver bar or club >>

  • Govnr

    Govnr's Park Restaurant & Tavern

    672 Logan St. Denver, CO 80203
    303-831-8605

    http://www.govnrspark.com If you've ever had fantasies of throwing away everything you've got and moving to some small town in the middle of nowhere, Govnr's Park is just what you'd want the one bar in that town to be. It's the kind of place where, if you're having some problem (be it psychological, marital, political or just a broken-down motorcycle), odds are pretty good there's an expert in the house, the kind of place that will celebrate the presidential inauguration with as much enthusiasm as the football playoffs -- complete with drink specials, extended hours and dirt-cheap grub ranging from burgers to Tater Tots to Mexican fare to slightly more substantial and upscale grub from the grill.

  • Historians Ale House

    Historians Ale House

    24 Broadway Denver, CO 80203
    720-479-8505

    http://www.historiansalehouse.com The long bar at Historians Ale House is reminiscent of something you would find in Boston or Chicago, with its never-ending line of taps surrounded by warm brick walls and sky-high ceilings. In addition to the forty beers it's got on tap, the bar has a Brewery of the Month program, in which it showcases the beers of one brewery from around the country, promoting beer education for all. Head upstairs to the rooftop patio for some of the best views in the city. The menu features food that's locally grown and raised and includes entrees, burgers, sandwiches and appetizers.

  • The Hornet

    The Hornet

    76 Broadway Denver, CO 80203
    303-777-7676

    http://www.hornetrestaurant.com Oh, how things change. What was Mary & Lou's Cafe for a million years is now a trendy diner for the new century, full of hip hustle and bustle. The huge, laughter-filled room has a buzz, and the fusion-y menu seems to appeal to cops, artists, businesspeople and frat boys alike. Patrons get a snootful of music with their drinks on Saturdays; finding a seat may not always be easy, but enjoying the sweet bebop combos is almost guaranteed.

  • Interstate Kitchen & Bar

    Interstate Kitchen & Bar

    1001 Santa Fe Drive Denver, CO 80204
    720-479-8829

    http://www.interstaterestaurant.com Brothers Andre and Aaron Lobato got an early start in the restaurant business, helping their parents run the 14th Street Bar and Grill, which had a 22-year run in Boulder. Just before that restaurant finally closed, the siblings took a cross-country trip and, along with their friend Joey Newman, decided to open their own place, a hip take on a classic highway roadhouse. In 2009, the partners picked up the lease on the corner spot in the Santa Fe Art District that had held the Santa Fe Tequila Company, a new building in the middle of old storefronts that today hold galleries, shops and other restaurants. They redesigned the space with tables that recall the round booths in diners, an old wood bar, artwork depicting old gas stations, and actual automotive fixtures, including the back of a car in the bar. The decor is a tribute to all the romantic symbols of roadside Americana: Norman Rockwell meets a heavy dose of rock and roll meets a mechanic with cigarettes rolled into his sleeve. The menu of American classics is similarly tricked out, and it's paired to a whiskey-heavy back bar. The food is good, and it's even better at the restaurant's two happy hours -- one late-afternoon, the other late-night -- where you can score a full meal for a cheap price.

  • Irish Hound

    Irish Hound

    575 St. Paul St. Denver, CO 80206
    303-996-0709

    http://www.irishhounddenver.com While the Irish Hound might not be a saccharine vision of the Old Sod, neither is it any old sod's dream of the motherland. Instead, it's simply a classic neighborhood joint with a beautiful and well-stocked mirror-backed long bar, chandeliers like old-fashioned gas lamps and an overall vibe of comforting Irish-Americanism -- like a historic Dublin pub as filtered through a design firm in Gary, Indiana. The menu is nothing special, but it's more than enough if you're looking for a good burger and some simple bar snacks. Read more about this Denver bar or club >>

  • Irish Snug

    Irish Snug

    1201 E. Colfax Ave. Denver, CO 80218
    303-839-1394

    http://www.irishsnug.com Colfax's rowdiest Irish restaurant-and-bar combo is very popular - and for good reason. The ground floor is a traditional pub with a large dining area, big bar and sidewalk patio that's always crowded when the sun is shining; the basement area is a leather-couch-lined rumpus room with plenty of space to lounge and chat - or play fantasy football, or participate in a pub quiz. The menu is served on both floors; it includes a mix of Irish classics and American fare, and there are more than a dozen international beers on tap (as well as just as many bottled offerings). The bar's snug - a private drinking booth imported from Ireland - is a unique, authentic feature, but it's just as fun to enjoy the nightly beer specials on the large gated patio, or in a non-smoking room. Let's raise a pint to the Snug. Read more about this Denver bar or club >>

  • Kinga

    Kinga's Lounge

    1509 Marion St. Denver, CO 80218
    303-830-6922

    http://www.kingaslounge.com Kinga's Lounge is home to many things: poker, live music, comedy acts, karaoke, lots of booze -- and ample patio space to enjoy it. But there is also an extensive, traditional Polish food menu hiding in plain sight amid all the festivities, with a few touches of American bar chow woven in for those content with a cheeseburger or barbecued pork sandwich to back up their vodka shots. Polish food contains as many difficult-to-pronounce strings of consonants as it does spuds, but both are great to try after a few drinks. The Golabki meat-stuffed cabbage rolls are simmered in an entrancing sweet-tart tomato sauce, the house pierogis are packed with spiced ground meat, cheese and savory mashed potatoes, and the grilled kielbasa (handmade from Sawa Meat and Sausage) is delicious in either the fresh white or smoked red version. Kinga's is a jovial watering hole with a full calendar of events every week, but the plethora of Polish provisions is a secret that deserves to be spilled. Read more about this Denver bar or club >>

    La Rumba

    303-572-8006

    http://www.larumba-denver.com With cove lighting illuminating the brushed-steel front and back bars and sweeping color kinetics, La Rumba resembles a liquor-filled laserium. Add to that the award some great club nights - Latin on Fridays and Saturday's Salsa night -- and this Golden Triangle treasure becomes one hot tamale. Read more about this Denver bar or club >>

  • Lion

    Lion's Lair

    2022 E. Colfax Ave. Denver, CO 80206
    303-320-9200

    http://www.lionslairlounge.com Small and curiously laid out -- a huge bar takes up more than half the room -- the Lion's Lair has been a Denver rock-and-roll institution since the spot (once a jazz club where Dexter Gordon and Billie Holiday played) started hosting live music in 1991. Local punk, rock and garage bands are most likely to be found on the elevated stage, though hot touring acts such as John Doe, Jonathan Richman and Graham Parker sometimes pack the place, which holds about a hundred people. Regulars drop by for cheap draft beer and the company of an occasionally crusty clientele. Read more about this Denver bar or club >>

  • The Living Room

    The Living Room

    1055 Broadway Denver, CO 80203
    303-339-6636

    http://www.denverwinebar.com The bubble chairs that hang from the Living Room's patio roof are a fun addition to this hip wine and tapas bar, which gives the Broadway club scene a needed dose of chill. For the more ambitious, a nifty pre-paid "debit card" and in-house wine preservation system allows you to sample and learn about a range of wines. Weekends are hopping here, but nice happy-hour specials await midtown workers Tuesday through Friday. A great place to take a break from the roar of the club crowd, the Living Room is like home - with way better furniture. With a full wine, beer and cocktail list, Mediterranean-style small plates, a dessert menu to die for, regular pop-ins from the coolest of neighbors and an urban patio perfect for people-watching, you might as well make yourself at home in the Living Room.

    http://www.lost-lake.com Matt LaBarge, owner of the Hi-Dive and Sputnik, took over the former Bulldog Bar space in the Bluebird district (it was the Monroe Tavern and Mr. Von's Alamo before that) and transformed it into Lost Lake, a cabin-style lounge inspired by some older bars in the Silver Lake area of Los Angeles. LeBarge described the spot as "a cool, dark, little wooden lounge loosely reminiscent of the older days." Nearly four years later, in 2013, he sold it to Larimer Lounge owner and AEG talent buyer Scott Campbell. Read more about this Denver bar or club >>

  • 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.

  • 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.
