A self-proclaimed "Chicago" bar, Wyman's No. 5 has all the trimmings of a Windy City spot: The Bears, Blackhawks and Cubs all get television priority on game days, and an extensive menu overflows with Chicago-style dogs and deep-dish pizza options. But the neighborhood hangout is all Colorado in its attitude, with bartenders who remember your name after one visit and a warm wood interior that feels neither stuffy nor pretentious. The only thing to rival its great bar cuisine is the draft beer, with all tap lines running through a complex triple-cooling system that ensures an icy brew.
