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

  • Beaver Dam Bar & Grill

    7545 E Iliff Ave. Denver, CO 80231
    303-337-0028

    Situated in a strip mall near the northeast corner of Iliff Avenue and Quebec Street, the Beaver Dam Bar & Grill is a no-frills neighborhood joint that's heavy on the sports, as evidenced by the huge hi-def TVs scattered around the place. But there's plenty of alternate action during the week, as well, including poker, karaoke, trivia, football bingo, beer pong, pool and DJs spinning. And while the Beav slings cheap drinks, the food is reasonably priced, too, with a menu that includes appetizers, burgers, ribs and sandwiches Read more about Beaver Dam Bar & Grill >>

  • Bull & Bush Pub & Brewery

    Bull & Bush Pub & Brewery

    4700 Cherry Creek Drive S. Denver, CO 80246
    303-759-0333

    http://www.bullandbush.com Founded in Glendale in 1971 by the Peterson brothers, the Bull & Bush has been a family affair ever since and is now run by a second generation of Petersons. Modeled on an old London pub -- with low ceilings, dark wood, brass rails and a fireplace -- this comfortable spot serves everything from English pub specialties to classic American fare. And for the past decade or so, it's also been one of the best craft breweries in town, turning out an ever-increasing lineup of award-winning beers. But the old-timers have always made the newbies feel welcome, whether it's at the long bar, on the patio or in the dining room. Read more about Bull & Bush Pub & Brewery >>

  • Continental Room & Lounge

    Continental Room & Lounge

    6635 E. Evans Ave. Denver, CO 80224
    303-759-5536

    After three decades as Teddy T’s, this spot was taken over by new owners in 2011, who changed the name to the Continental Room & Lounge. The space was completely remodeled inside: The bar was redone, new carpet was installed, and the room where the pool tables used to be was made into a lounge. The Continental – still a bit of a fern bar – no longer seems as dingy as it once was, and on the weekends, the room brings in some fine local talent, like the Delta Sonics and Hazel Miller.

  • The Dam Grille

    The Dam Grille

    8000 E. Quincy Ave. Denver, CO 80237-2320
    303-779-0805

    http://www.thedamgrille.com/page2.html Situated in a strip mall not far from Cherry Creek Reservoir, the Dam Grille is pretty damn serious about sports, boasting more than a dozen HD TVs and a 100-inch projector screen within its confines. There's a horseshoe-shaped bar in the good-sized room, along with plenty of seating for those watching a game. That bar has 24 beers on tap, and the food menu includes appetizers such as quesadillas and bacon-stuffed jalapeños as well as soups, salads, burgers, sandwiches and Mexican dishes. The Dam also brings in live music occasionally. Read more about The Dam Grille >>

  • Darcy

    Darcy's Bistro & Pub

    4955 S. Ulster St. Denver, CO 80237
    303-770-0477

    http://www.darcysbistroandpub.com Located in an upscale DTC strip mall, Darcy's Irish Pub and Bistro is a chic eatery/Irish-pub hybrid that caters to an after-work crowd. Three seating areas complement the social atmosphere: a dark wood bar (with the requisite Irish ales and whiskeys on tap), a dining area with tables and booths, and a cozy library in the back.

  • Devon

    Devon's Pub

    4992 E. Hampden Ave. Denver, CO 80222
    303-756-5507

    http://www.devonspub.com In 2001, Devon's made the change from cigar shop to cigar shop and classy pub. The establishment shortened its humidor to make space for imbibing patrons but left plenty of good cigar choices for customers to enjoy. One of the few smoking lounges left in town, Devon's offers a fine selection of stogies, and with tobacco experts on hand, even the junior puffer will easily find an enjoyable smoke. The pub's monthly cigar-tasting event has enthusiasts from all over flowing through the space. From the ample-sized outdoor patio to the handcrafted cherry-wood bar to the multiple pool tables, Devon's Pub has something for the aficionado in all of us. Read more about Devon's Pub >>

  • The Dirty Duck Bar

    The Dirty Duck Bar

    4780 E. Evans Ave. Denver, CO 80222
    303-758-3667

    http://www.dirtyduckbar.com From the looks of this friendly neighborhood dive, it's hard to imagine the place having anything to do with Shakespeare. But the bar's name was actually inspired by a pub in Stratford-upon-Avon, Shakespeare's old stomping ground. It's a far cry from a traditional pub - Denver's Dirty Duck is more of a low-key sports bar that serves cheap drinks and offers a number of weekly specials. With a slightly older crowd, the bar is a nice alternative to the DU bars further west on Evans Avenue. Although the menu is a bit on the short side, the spot does serve burgers, pizza and sandwiches. Read more about The Dirty Duck Bar >>

  • Dr. Proctor

    Dr. Proctor's Lounge

    4201 E. Mississippi Ave. Glendale, CO 80246
    303-756-1665

    You wouldn't necessarily expect it, driving through the Glendale strip mall that houses shops like the Bookies, but Dr. Proctor's is a bit of an institution, having been around for over thirty years. A large space with tons of pool tables (free from 11 a.m. to 5 p.m.) and a kitschy atmosphere, the lounge has been cranking out food and drinks behind its nondescript facade with impressive longevity. The kitchen specializes in comfort-food lunches and burgers and burritos for dinner. Happy hour runs from mid-day through early evening on weekdays, and there's karaoke later in the week. Most of the time, though, you can find locals knocking back brews and knocking billiard balls a round, keeping the good doctor in business. Read more about Dr. Proctor's Lounge >>

  • Duke

    Duke's Back Street Sports Tavern

    1150 S. Galena St. Denver, CO 80247
    720-213-0393

    http://www.dukesbackstreet.com Duke's Back Street Sports Tavern is aptly named, hidden down a small street on the Denver-Aurora border. The joint is a local haven with a testosterone-heavy crew soaking in Buds, Broncos and Beatles. (About that last one: Much of the decor displays an out-of-its-element heavy predilection for the Liverpudlian lads.) Duke's is nearly windowless, so it's pretty dark inside, all the better to push that boys' club vibe, free of wives, girlfriends and the like. The gents line the bar, some downing one of Duke's roster of sandwiches or fried appetizers (the kitchen is closed Mondays but cranks out NFL-readying breakfasts on Sundays), others getting ready to take advantage of the tavern's available games -- including pool on one of its well-located tables.

  • Family Karaoke

    Family Karaoke

    2760 S. Havana St. Aurora, CO 80231
    303-755-5658

    While Armida's appears to have the daily-karaoke market cornered in Denver, Family Karaoke is one of the few spots that caters to singers every day of the week in Aurora. But where Armida's has a main room and a secondary room upstairs, Family has individual rooms that can be reserved. In addition to American hits, there's also a decent selection of Korean, Japanese and Chinese songs. Read more about Family Karaoke >>

  • Inga

    Inga's Alpine Lounge

    5151 Leetsdale Drive Denver, CO 80246
    720-389-6203

    Leigh Jones, owner of Inga's Alpine Lounge, says the spot is "our '60s and '70s version of a swinging kind of après-ski lounge, an over-the-top place where, if it were a lodge on a ski mountain, would have a fur-bikini-clad female villain or vixen of the moment on the slopes skiing away from James Bond." The bar, which formerly housed Pete's Patio Bar, is a kitschy mix of rustic simplicity and retro elegance. The curved, biscuit-hued booths were procured from the now-closed Morton's of Chicago in the Tech Center; the battle-scarred hardwood floors look as though they've been deliberately dented by the stomp of ski boots; tufted, swiveling, brass-studded bar stools are proper perches for both vixens and villains; a dated jukebox blasts tunes that span generations (think Tom Jones to Vampire Weekend); and an electric fireplace, the color of orange flames, harks back to the Dick Van Dyke Show era.

  • 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 >>

  • Mugsy

    Mugsy's Bar

    7950 E. Mississippi Ave. Denver, CO 80247
    303-755-4335

    The Naughty Prince had a nice run as "Denver's premier dart bar" at 7950 East Mississippi Avenue before it finally closed at the end of 2010. Mugsy’s moved in soon after, taking over a third of the former Naughty Prince space. While Mugsy's isn't a dart bar, the laid-back neighborhood watering hole, which has a decent-sized smoking patio, does have pool tables, and the kitchen serves up burgers and pizza.

  • Old Chicago

    Old Chicago

    6676 S. Parker Road Denver, CO 80231
    303-400-0876

    http://www.oldchicago.com/aurora-arapahoe-crossing In this day and age, Old Chicago locations are common enough across the country that many diners have forgotten this chain's humble beginnings: It got its start not in Chicago -- or anywhere else in Illinois, for that matter -- but in Boulder, in 1976. Old Chicago is part of the Rock Bottom line of restaurants, and beer features heavily on the menu; the bar has 110 kinds available at any given time. The pizza is another draw, served Chicago-style, original or thin crust, with signature toppings and build-your-own options. The rest of the menu is about what you'd expect from a pizza-heavy, beer-centric venue: burgers, pasta, calzones, starters and salads. But for dessert, you can't miss with the renowned Big Cookie.

    303-758-1077

    http://www.overthereoffhampden.com While the building at 3425 South Oleander Court has gone through several incarnations over the years, Over There Off Hampden has had a good run as a friendly neighborhood bar with live music, dance nights and free pool days. This Southeast Denver spot hosts an assortment of bands and DJs on the weekends, and DJ KTone heads up a Tuesday-night dance party.

    http://www.vcgh.com/site/clubs/brands/pts/ The middle ground between downtown’s self-styled gentleman’s clubs and the sketchy strip joints in the suburbs, the venerable PT’s Showclub has been shakin’ it for 30 years now. The “All Nude” club near the Cherry Creek Reservoir is an alcohol-free, smoking-free, underwear-free strip club for the eighteen-and-older set. Bathed in neon pink, the club hosts parties worthy of a frat mixer — like the Red Light Carnival, which features a dunk tank and a bologna toss. Oh, yeah, and naked ladies are here, too.

  • Retreat Grill & Sports Tavern

    2186 S. Colorado Blvd. Denver, CO 80222
    303-756-1869

    Tucked away in a nondescript strip mall near Colorado Boulevard and Evans, the Retreat is a neighborhood dive with an affinity for sports; it also serves as a home for Cleveland Browns fans. Opened in 1978, the Retreat retains a lot of its vintage character. The front room has bar seating while the back is the game room, outfitted with two pool tables, a shuffleboard table and three dartboards. The lunch and dinner menus include Mexican food, sandwiches, burgers and a variety of appetizers. Read more about Retreat Grill & Sports Tavern >>

  • Sam

    Sam's Bar & Lounge

    6801 Leetsdale Drive Denver, CO 80224-1522
    303-322-6401

    While some of Denver's classic dives are dying off, places like Sam's Bar & Lounge continue to forge ahead. Sid Maniatis, one of the bar's owners, says the bar and its iconic neon sign have been in the family for four decades. Today's sign has changed slightly from its original form, however: The flashing marquee lights on the arrow had to be replaced with neon because the flashing was too distracting to drivers. Aside from that, not a whole lot at Sam's has changed inside or out over the past forty years, which is definitely part of the joint's vintage, gritty charm. Read more about Sam's Bar & Lounge >>
