The Bar Car

The Bar Car

Given the building's rather nondescript front, the dark, rustic interior -- with its wisps of an old-timey railroad theme -- is a pleasant surprise.
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.
Williams & Graham

Williams & Graham

The focus is the big wooden bar, which has a drink menu featuring vignettes, anecdotes and profiles of spirits written by prolific bartenders from around the country, as well as a roster of simple, elegant cocktails.

  • Jackson

    Jackson's Sports Rock

    1520 20th St. Denver, CO 80202-1222

  • Jagged Mountain Craft Brewery

    Jagged Mountain Craft Brewery

    1139 20th St Denver, CO 80205
    720-689-2337 After crowd-sourcing funding for equipment and other needs, Jagged Mountain Craft Brewery opened in the Ballpark neighborhood in late 2013, in a building that once served as a horse stable for a local carriage company. And the place runs on plenty of horsepower from its high-octane beers, designed by brewmaster (and former Mountain Sun brewer) Wayne Burns. Located on the busy corner of 20th and Lawrence streets, Jagged Mountain has a decidedly downtown feel -- one that's highlighted and complemented by tall windows that wrap around the building, allowing passersby to get a good look at the ten-barrel brewhouse and fermentation tanks inside and the tap room's patrons to watch the foot and car traffic outside.

  • Jake

    Jake's Food & Spirits

    3800 Walnut St. Denver, CO 80205
    303-295-3800 There's not really a Jake behind Jake's Food & Spirits. This neighborhood joint's name was actually inspired by the abstract notion of a guy, maybe a Jake, who everyone knows and likes. Open for lunch, dinner and late-night dining, Jake's comes alive at night; the place usually has some sort of entertainment happening most nights of the week, whether it be comedy, karaoke, trivia, live music or DJs. A mile and a half from Coors Field in the RiNo Arts District, Jake's feels like an oasis of cool that's far enough away from LoDo to feel disconnected from downtown.

  • Katie Mullen

    Katie Mullen's

    1550 Court Place Denver, CO 80202
    303-573-0336 For years, Denver has been aching for a real, serious Irish pub. With Katie Mullen's, it didn't just get one, it got four - thanks to this huge space inside the Sheraton and clever architecture that allowed the endeavor to sprout four differently styled bars covering a good swath of Hibernian drinking history. It also opened with a custom tap system guaranteeing you the best possible pint of Guinness in the city, and a kitchen fitted out for serving three meals a day of honest-to-jaysus Irish cuisine - everything from fish and chips to bangers and mash to boxty, shepherd's pie and Jameson whiskey.

  • La Boheme Gentlemen

    La Boheme Gentlemen's Cabaret

    1443 Stout St. Denver, CO 80202
    303-820-3212 La Boheme has gone through a few changes over the years since it took over the original home of the Red Garter. Today it's a lovingly crafted gentlemen's cabaret, filled with exotic dancers and a steakhouse featuring extensive wine lists and a large collection of fine cigars. Service-industry nights and benefits line La Boheme's calendar throughout the year, and ample parking makes it easy to pop in for a quick bite or to simply watch the dancers at work.

  • LaMark 15

    LaMark 15

    1324 15th St. Denver, CO 80202

    In 2009, Paul Piciocchi took over the space at 1320 15th Street and split it into three venues: The Drink, Mix Music Lounge and Rack & Rye Gastropub. While the Drink is essentially still the same, the other spots have gone through some changes: Piciocchi moved his Tryst Lounge into the Mix space in 2013, and the Rack & Rye spot is now the LaMark 15, a neighborhood lounge. Most of the LaMark's interior is redone in reclaimed wood, and Piciocchi has partnered with Kim.Cheese to serve twenty different kinds of gourmet grilled cheese sandwiches there.

  • Lannie

    Lannie's Clocktower Cabaret

    1601 Arapahoe St. Denver, CO 80202
    303-293-0075 A legendary singer in Denver for decades, Lannie Garrett knows how to keep folks entertained. And she brings the same enthusiasm she has for performing to her club, a riotously decorated space (thank Lonnie Hanzon for that) located in the basement of the D&F Clocktower. While Garrett performs regularly here, sometimes with a big band or the Gypsy Swing Revue, she also brings in a variety of other acts, everything from burlesque, comedy and magic to live R&B, blues, jazz and rock. Depending on the night's entertainment lineup, the dimly lit, intimate club can be an ideal spot for dates and anniversaries -- or a raucous bachelorette party. Generally, there are shows Wednesday through Saturday night. Read more about Lannie's Clocktower Cabaret >>

  • Lodo

    Lodo's Bar & Grill

    1946 Market St. Denver, CO 80202
    303-293-8555 Lodo's is renowned for its stunning rooftop bar, within throwing distance of Coors Field, and its cheap drinks. But it also deserves praise for its sizable menu, which offers something for everyone, including such off-the-beaten-path (or at least baby steps off the beaten path) selections like Kobe beef sliders, turkey served on a pretzel roll, and ahi tuna on wonton crisps. Want to really enjoy the Rockies? Watch the ballpark from prime patio seating here while you down a burger and beer, and thumb your nose at the hapless crowd surging toward you when the game lets out. The bar also has locations in Highlands Ranch and Westminster, helping to bring a bit of LoDo to the 'burbs. Read more about Lodo's Bar & Grill >>

  • Lucky Strike Lanes

    Lucky Strike Lanes

    500 16th St. Denver, CO 80202
    303-629-9090 Located on the third floor of the Denver Pavilions, Lucky Strike is part bowling alley, part retro restaurant, part nighttime hangout. The spot is full-scale fun as '50s kitsch meets 21st-century technology. It's a hip venue that serves up respectable bar chow. Read more about Lucky Strike Lanes >>

  • Maloney

    Maloney's Tavern

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

  • The Matchbox

    The Matchbox

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

  • Meadowlark


    2701 Larimer St. Denver, CO 80205
    303-293-0251 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. Read more about Meadowlark >>

  • Mercury Cafe

    Mercury Cafe

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

  • The Monkey Barrel

    The Monkey Barrel

    1611 Platte St. Denver, CO 80202
    303-433-4646 A few years after opening Rock-a-Billies in Arvada, owner Jimmy Nigg took over the former Salvagetti Bicycle Workshop space at 1611 Platte Street and transformed it into the Monkey Barrel and opened it in the fall of 2013. The spot, which boasts a mural of former Sex Pistol Sid Vicious on the back wall, brings in punk-, alternative- and modern-rock acts a few nights a week. The bar, which serves a number of local craft beers, seats forty, and there are three booths with their own TVs. Read more about The Monkey Barrel >>

  • Mr. A's Restaurant & Lounge

    3200 E. 40th Ave. Denver, CO 80205-3771

    There's a big sign on the front of Mr. A's proclaiming it to be "Denver's friendliest lounge." The interior isn't far from the Dexter Lake Club - the club in Animal House where Otis Day & the Knights played -- save for the zebra-striped wall coverings. It has the feel of a place that hasn't changed much over the past few decades, which is something we always dig. In the corner is a small stage where a DJ spins old-school jams. Read more about Mr. A's Restaurant & Lounge >>

  • My Brother

    My Brother's Bar

    2376 15th St. Denver, CO 80202

    Yes, My Brother's Bar has a fascinating history: oldest still-operating bar in Denver, Neal Cassady hangout, yadda yadda, etc. Yes, in its current incarnation it's a beloved and anachronistic neighborhood institution that plays classical music, caters to a demographically mixed crowd of crusty old-timers, serious drinkers, families, artists and transplants, and from its stubby galley kitchen offers a strange diner-slash-taproom-cum-lunchwagon menu. But when a burger is this good - and the kitchen cooks 'em up until 1 a.m. - you just don't need anything more. Read more about My Brother's Bar >>

  • Mynt Mojito Lounge

    Mynt Mojito Lounge

    1424 Market St. Denver, CO 80202
    303-825-6968 Public lounging is a nightly pastime at Mynt, where comfy couches cushion the well-tailored hides of LoDo loyalists. Live DJs spin the body electric every Thursday. Decorated to suit its name -- the place is greener than Kermit -- Mynt is mojitos-and-martini heaven. Several beer choices also augment a small food menu. Read more about Mynt Mojito Lounge >>

  • Nallen

    Nallen's Irish Pub

    1429 Market St. Denver, CO 80202

    Nallen’s Irish Pub opened in 1992 and was a neighborhood mainstay long before other bars invaded the 1400 block of Market Street. The family-operated, no-frills spot feels more like an authentic Irish pub than a trendy LoDo bar. Since Nallen’s isn’t overwhelmed with a lot of TVs showing sporting events, it’s easier to concentrate on the drinking here. The bar serves a mean pint of Guinness, along with a decent array of U.K. brews like Smithwick’s and domestic and local beers. Read more about Nallen's Irish Pub >>
