Candlelight Tavern

383 S. Pearl St. Denver, CO 80209 | South Denver | 303-778-9530

Location Description:

Open for over seventy years on an unassuming block of South Pearl, the Candlelight Tavern is a neighborhood haven, the lone bar sitting peacefully next to residences and a milk-truck lot. But the Tavern's patrons are far from unassuming: A rambunctious crowd -- including everyone from working stiffs to college kids and sports fans -- can be found just behind the bar's door seven nights a week, enjoying darts, pool, foosball, an always-occupied shuffleboard table and a menu that includes burgers and fries. And the wood-paneled saloon's biggest attraction may the wall-mounted jukebox, which features plenty of sing-along-inducing songs.
