Dazzle

In business for more than fifteen years, Dazzle has secured its spot as the premier place for jazz in Denver. DownBeat magazine listed it as one of the top 100 jazz clubs in the world ― and with good reason.
Historians Ale House

Historians Ale House

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.
The Walnut Room

The Walnut Room

While the Walnut Street location, which opened in 2005, is a great place for grub, it's also a 250-person music venue that brings in a steady stream of local and national acts and boasts one of the best-sounding rooms in the city.

  • 16Mix

    16Mix

    1550 Court Place Denver, CO 80202
    303-626-2582

    http://www.16mixdenverdowntown.com Housed in the Sheraton Hotel, the upscale 16Mix cocktail lounge is an ideal spot for people-watching both inside and outside, since it has floor-to-ceiling windows that overlook the 16th Street Mall. A step up from many other downtown hotel bars, 16Mix is visually stunning and has a first-rate crew of bartenders who can whip up anything from an old standby to any number of the lounge's signature cocktails, like the Green Haus (gin, ginger simple syrup and lime juice) or the Key Lime Pie (vanilla vodka, pineapple and Rose's lime mix). Quite a few local brews are on tap, and 16Mix serves small-plate items that include pot stickers, calamari, shrimp quesadillas, burgers and sandwiches. Read more about 16Mix >>

  • The 1up LoDo

    The 1up LoDo

    1925 Blake St. Denver, CO 80202
    303-779-6444

    http://www.the-1up.com Opened in March 2011, the 1up LoDo is an arcade, bar and restaurant. Located just half a block from Coors Field, the place features more than thirty vintage arcade games, all from 1985 and earlier, including Pac-Man, Tetris, Galaga, Mortal Kombat and Tron. Named after the green mushroom that you earn in Mario Brothers when you get the free guy, or when player one is up at the start of a game, the 1up has two lanes of Skee-Ball, eight pinball machines and a display case full of vintage home-game consoles. The bathrooms are tricked out with vintage arcade art, and a mural behind the stage area was done by Jason Garcia, one of the live painters with STS9. Read more about The 1up LoDo >>

  • The 9th Door

    The 9th Door

    1808 Blake St. Denver, CO 80202
    303-292-2229

    http://www.the9thdoor.com When the 9th Door opened in 2005, veteran chef Michael Wahaltere was called in as a consultant, and he created a menu of Spanish favorites, meant to be mixed and matched and made into a meal. To go with this inviting lineup, the cavernous spot was decked out in coppery hues and dark woods, with a plush red banquette along the wall and a bed in the middle of the dining room, gimmicky enough to make you feel like you've entered some adult theme park. The decor remains; the chef does not. Today's board keeps a lot of the original Wahaltere creations; the menu is divided between hot and cold tapas, all of which combine such traditional ingredients as olives, ham and Manchego and goat cheeses, with varying levels of complexity and success. The best time to stop by this restaurant is during happy hour, when the bites and beverages are a steal. Read more about The 9th Door >>

  • Appaloosa Grill

    Appaloosa Grill

    535 16th St. Denver, CO 80202
    720-932-1700

    http://www.appaloosagrill.com When you stumble off the 16th Street Mall and into the Appaloosa, a cheerful, independently owned spot, odds are good that you'll hit a happy hour. Because the Appaloosa's happy hours are very, very expansive -- almost as expansive as its booze is inexpensive during these times. And you can often down your drinks while listening to live music -- a rarity in this part of town. Read more about Appaloosa Grill >>

  • The Armoury

    The Armoury

    2048 Larimer St. Denver, CO 80205
    303-295-0215

    http://www.armourydenver.com Named after the Arsenal soccer team's fan store, the Armoury is an old-world pub that focuses on soccer; spirits heavy on beer and browns; a “Euro pub” menu created by Brian Laird; and a live-music lineup that features punk, post-punk and indie-rock acts. Partners Juan Padro, Kevin Eddy, Brad Beale, Kris Slocum and Kris Baehre (the former owner of Highland Tavern) opened their place in early 2013, taking a few cues from Europe -- where sports, culture and art aren't mutually exclusive, as they seem to be in the States. The refurbished warehouse space is decked out with hardwood floors, exposed red brick, several TVs (including one with a huge projector screen), a zinc bar, and an antique back bar that features a gorgeous porcelain-baked enamel tap system, from which eight brews are poured. The menu goes way beyond standard Brit fare, with salads and homemade soups, flatbread pizzas, sandwiches and charcuterie. Read more about The Armoury >>

  • Blake Street Tavern

    Blake Street Tavern

    2301 Blake St. Denver, CO 80205
    303-675-0505

    http://www.blakestreettavern.com Blake Street Tavern is the epitome of a sports bar. Located just two blocks from Coors Field, it's a great place to meet up before or after a Rockies game or just watch another sporting event on one of its forty high-definition televisions. But you can also get into the game yourself: Blake Street has pool tables, shuffleboard, skee ball, foosball and Golden Tee, too. It also has two two happy hours -- one from 3 to 6 p.m. Monday-Friday and the other from 10 p.m. until midnight Saturday though Thursday. And then there's the food, which is far better than your standard tavern fare. Read more about Blake Street Tavern >>

  • Blue Moon Brewing Company @ the Sandlot

    Blue Moon Brewing Company @ the Sandlot

    2161 Blake St. Denver, CO 80205-2010
    303-298-1587

    http://www.bluemoonbrewingcompany.com The Blue Moon Brewing Company @ the Sandlot has been Denver's most unusual brewery since it debuted inside Coors Field in 1995; located in a hundred-year-old warehouse that was incorporated into the architecture of the stadium, the Sandlot was only open to Rockies ticket holders on game days for many years. But in 2013, the Sandlot began opening to the public on non-game days and for a few hours during days when the Rockies play night games. The restaurant, which serves barbecue, Mexican food and other pub fare, is run by Aramark, and is still primarily open only on game days; the brewery is operated year-round by MillerCoors. This is where the famed Blue Moon was invented, but the Sandlot, which features indoor and outdoor seating, turns out many other interesting beers over the course of the season.

  • Breckenridge Colorado Craft

    Breckenridge Colorado Craft

    2220 Blake St. Denver, CO 80205
    303-297-3644

    http://www.breckbrew.com Colorado is the brewpub capital of the world, and Breckenridge Brewery was one of the early pioneers that helped the state claim that crown. Since opening nearly two decades ago, this location near Coors Field (one of five Breckenridge pubs) showcases the brewery's extensive selection of handcrafted beers, which can best be sampled during daily happy hour (except when the Rockies are in town). During the day, streams of natural light shine through the venue's skylights, and it turns into a lively joint at night. The place is so spacious that even on game days you shouldn't have to wait long for a table. There's also a good selection of typical pub fare, everything from wings and nachos to soups and salads to burgers and a smattering of Mexican dishes, including enchiladas and fajitas.

  • The British Bulldog

    The British Bulldog

    2052 Stout St. Denver, CO 80205
    303-295-7974

    http://www.britishbulldogdenver.com The Bulldog's space actually looks and feels like a bar -- not an art gallery, not a nightclub, not a place that could vanish tomorrow and reappear the next day as a toy store or a hair salon without anyone noticing. It's a double-barreled shotgun of a room with the long oak on one side and rickety, high-backed wooden booths (painted back when it was the Punch Bowl by a regular for liquor money, according to legend) on the other that are devilishly uncomfortable until you get a couple of drinks in you, and then they become miraculously snug and comfy. Out front, there's a covered patio just big enough for six smokers to stand without bumping elbows. And from the kitchen come a variety of simple pub dishes, livened up here and there with hints of Indian and Pakistani cuisine. Read more about The British Bulldog >>

  • Brothers Bar and Grill

    Brothers Bar and Grill

    1920 Market St. Denver, CO 80202
    303-297-2767

    http://www.brothersbar.com Brothers Bar and Grill has a neon sign that boasts a 1967 establishment date, but the Denver location only opened in 2010 -- and 1967 is actually the year that the first of the Wisconsin brothers who founded this chain was born. The soundtrack offers a steady stream of hip-hop, the entertainment includes a few video games and a pool table, and the menu includes bar staples such as sliders and sandwiches (the highlight is the all-beef Nathan's hot dog served with your choice of many toppings). Still, Brothers' LoDo location makes it a convenient stop for Rockies fans, and its aggressive series of drink specials includes regular deals on domestic bottled beers, Southern Comfort mixers and shots. The spot is also an ideal roost for smokers -- an enclosed patio space is far enough removed to keep secondhand smoke out of the bar, but it's equipped with a fire pit and spacious enough to feel like a part of the main building.

  • Carioca Cafe (Bar Bar)

    Carioca Cafe (Bar Bar)

    2060 Champa St. Denver, CO 80202
    303-993-2010

    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) >>

  • Casselman

    Casselman's Bar & Venue

    2620 Walnut St. Denver, CO 80205
    720-242-8923

    http://www.casselmans.com 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 >>

  • Celtic Tavern

    Celtic Tavern

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

    http://www.celtictavern.com 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.

  • Chances

    Chances

    1523 Market St. Denver, CO 80202
    720-771-6055

    http://www.chancesdenver.com 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 >>

  • Comedy Works

    Comedy Works

    1226 15th St. Denver, CO 80202
    303-595-3637

    http://www.comedyworks.com The original outpost of the Comedy Works franchise (now with a second location south of town) is underground, but the acts the club presents aren't. The cavernous and oft-cramped room hosts many of the comics who have regularly cozied up to Jay, Dave and Conan (Jerry Seinfeld, Roseanne Barr, Ellen Degeneres, Chris Rock and Dave Chappelle among them), as well as local standup guys and gals. The club has been going since 1981 and even earned accolades in USA Today as one of the top five comedy venues in the country. The setting isn't for the claustrophobic -- tables are shoved together to maximize the laughter-decibel level -- and the drinks aren't cheap. But the laughs aren't, either.

  • Corridor 44

    Corridor 44

    1433 Larimer St. Denver, CO 80202
    303-893-0044

    http://www.corridor44.com Drinking champagne is often compared to drinking stars, and with its dangling chandeliers and European-style furnishings, Corridor 44 is sufficiently sparkly to support that analogy. While the tiny Larimer Square spot has a full bar, the bubbly is what makes this place rise above the rest. Corridor 44 serves a seasonal selection of true Champagne as well as sparkling wines; during the week, nearly twenty champagne cocktails are available for sipping and sampling. The menu is designed to match the chi-chi drinks, with offerings ranging from truffle-oil fries and caviar to mussels and steak. The ambience is ideal for a first date, an anniversary or an intimate meeting with friends. Read more about Corridor 44 >>

  • The Cowboy Lounge

    The Cowboy Lounge

    1941 Market St. Denver, CO 80202
    303-226-1570

    http://www.tavernhg.com/cowboy_lounge Cowboy Lounge's main attractions may be its spacious dance floor and country music, but this LoDo bar also holds real appeal for sports fans and casual bar-goers. The place is owned by the neighboring Tavern, and both establishments have benefited from the partnership. A shared upstairs patio featuring a full bar and two wide-screen TVs beaming games offers not just a great view, but a chance to get a breather from the dance floor, which can get fairly crowded on Thursday, Friday and Saturday nights. Access to the Tavern also gives patrons more menu options; they can order from a standard bar menu featuring pizzas, sandwiches and salads. Read more about The Cowboy Lounge >>

    303-534-UGLY

    http://www.coyoteuglysaloon.com Notorious for its dancing-on-the-bar female bartenders, made famous by the movie of the same name, the Denver branch of the New York institution doesn't disappoint. For those looking for some eye candy to augment their booze, this noisy joint is always lively. Read more about Coyote Ugly Saloon >>

  • Cru: A Wine Bar

    Cru: A Wine Bar

    1442 Larimer St. Denver, CO 80202
    303-893-9463

    http://www.cruawinebar.com Wine cubbies line the back wall of the high-ceilinged sliver of Larimer Square space occupied by Cru: A Wine Bar. The richly appointed room fills with an after-work crowd in the late afternoon, as business types wind down over a glass of wine and a snack during happy hour while others rev up for a big evening ahead. Later at night, the low cherry tables and bar are illuminated by the soft glow of candles, and the conversations get more intimate. Although the big draw is wine - offered by the bottle, by the glass and in dozens of wine flights - Cru proffers sizable cheese and charcuterie boards as well as a full dinner menu to soak up all that alcohol. The wine menu is more international, with bottles that originate everywhere from South America to California; the food selection includes cheese plates and stone-fired pizzas. All the servers give you very personalized attention, and that and the bar's intimate feel make this a perfect choice for a romantic rendezvous or a laid-back meeting.

  • The Cruise Room

    The Cruise Room

    1600 17th St. Denver, CO 80202
    303-825-1107

    http://www.theoxfordhotel.com The Cruise Room could be Denver's most iconic spot. It's located in the Oxford Hotel, so its marble floors echo with Denver history, stretching back to the late nineteenth century, when Union Station was the crossroads of the Rocky Mountain West and Bat Masterson relieved himself in the giant urinals in the basement bathrooms. But the Cruise Room has more recent history, too: It was renovated in the '30s to look like the lounge on the Queen Mary (hence the name), then got a quick remodel a decade later when the German toast -- one of a dozen circling the walls of the bar -- was deemed politically incorrect; in the '60s, it was the headquarters for a group of carousers known as the Evil Companions. Today, you'll find all kinds of passengers hopping aboard a stool in the Cruise Room -- tourists and business types staying at the hotel, longtime fans who've moved from the suburbs to LoDo lofts, hipsters who've discovered the joys of strong martinis. And good food: McCormick's, which has a bar and dining room flanking the Cruise Room, serves its menu of steaks and seafood in here, too. Ahoy! Read more about The Cruise Room >>

  • 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 >>

  • Delaney

    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 >>

  • 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. >>
