El Charrito

2100 Larimer St.
Denver, CO 80205


  • Tue 4pm-12am, Wed-Sat 4pm-2am, Sun 10am-12am
Established in 1962, El Charrito has long been one of downtown’s classic dives. It’s been closed a few times over the years, but new owners took over the spot in 2009 and now call it a “five-star dive bar.” It's got a new-world feel while still retaining some of its old-school charm. Open Wednesday through Sunday, El Charrito serves cheap drinks, and it's a lively spot for karaoke on the weekends ? one of the few places in the Ballpark neighborhood to get on the mic on Fridays and Saturdays.
