If you're looking for a place to watch any sort of game, head directly to Chopper's Sports Grill. Chopper's, named for Bob "Chopper" Travaglini, the late, beloved Denver Nuggets trainer, is a real sports bar, with memorabilia and TVs hanging in every nook and cranny -- bathrooms included. But it also serves real food, such as gourmet pizzas and steaks, instead of standard sports-bar fare. (Don't worry, macho men: The kitchen also cooks up burgers, chicken wings and nachos.)
