The Fainting Goat took over a building on Broadway that's been a half-dozen restaurants and bars over the years, giving it a good cleaning, fixing the elevator and introducing a menu with an Irish accent. But the best innovation so far has been the bar added to the rooftop patio, which saves the servers (or customers) from having to run down three flights of stairs every time they need another round. And not only does this secluded sky-high spot offer a lovely view of the mountains, but it has wi-fi and ashtrays, since this patio is definitely far enough from the front entrance for smoking to be legal. And not only is this the best rooftop patio in Denver, but it could also be the best place to find your employees playing hooky. The Goat serves up a kind of Irish-American mixed bag of burgers and sandwiches, chicken wings and fingers, inexpensive steaks, Irish nachos (covered in corned beef, natch) and lunchtime fish-and-chips specials.
