A downtown landmark since 1933, El Chapultepec is the swinging home to Denver's finest jazz and R&B artists, who command the stage in the tiny club seven nights a week. Though the 'Pec is most celebrated for its music, the food is well worth a visit. With American grub and traditional Mexican dishes that beg to be smothered in cheese and green chile, El Chapultepec is a classic choice for a weekday lunch or a burrito fix during a night on the town. Spicy, cheesy and inexpensive, the 'Pec's food does the trick on a rough morning after, too. The music leans to the traditional, and so do the tastes of purists who show up to listen in this dim, vintage gem.
