One of the many bars and restaurants in the Pete's empire, the Satire Lounge has been a Denver mainstay for nearly five decades. Offering a comforting refuge from the insanity that is East Colfax Avenue, the friendly space is a warm cavern of tall booths, a beautiful bar and a second, separate dining area. Known for a huge menu dominated by its famous Mexican fare, the lounge serves dozens of platters and combination plates consisting of burritos, enchiladas and quesadillas, plus sandwiches and salads, every day, open to close. With no pool tables or TVs to distract its patrons, the Satire's biggest draw is the fact that it's a good old-fashioned lounge -- a place where conversation is the main attraction.
