There's not really a Jake behind Jake's Food & Spirits. This neighborhood joint's name was actually inspired by the abstract notion of a guy, maybe a Jake, who everyone knows and likes. Open for lunch, dinner and late-night dining, Jake's comes alive at night; the place usually has some sort of entertainment happening most nights of the week, whether it be comedy, karaoke, trivia, live music or DJs. A mile and a half from Coors Field in the RiNo Arts District, Jake's feels like an oasis of cool that's far enough away from LoDo to feel disconnected from downtown.
