Tennyson's Tap

4335 W. 38th Ave.
Denver, CO 80212


  • Monday through Friday 4 p.m. to 2 a.m.; Saturday and Sunday noon to 2 a.m.
Once home to the somewhat run-down Baron's Restaurant and Lounge, the building at 4335 West 38th Avenue was taken over by new owners, remodeled, and reopened as Tennyson's Tap in early 2011. The decor, inspired by that of traditional Western saloons, includes a 25-foot-long black-walnut bar top as well as knotty alder woodwork. Tennyson's serves a decent selection of Colorado spirits and brews and hosts live music most nights of the week; TVs, pinball and a jukebox round out the entertainment options.
