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.
