Celtic Tavern

1801 Blake St. Denver, CO 80202 | Downtown Denver | 303-308-1795

Location Description:

If you're looking for something Irish in LoDo and prefer to avoid the sports-bar crowd, Celtic Tavern might be just the ticket. Eschewing a green-beer motif in favor of decor that incorporates literary works from the Emerald Isle's finest, Celtic Tavern presents a distinct Gaelic theme. With its mahogany-paneled walls and fireplaces, the venue offers a cozy, Welsh-inspired nook and a leather-sofa-filled Scottish room for other bastards of the British Empire. The Celtic, which has fifty imported and domestic brews on tap, as well as boasting the one of the largest whiskey selections in Colorado, also brings live music on the weekends. Go for the drinks. Go for the style. Go for the decor or the camaraderie of fellow drinkers or to get really weird down in those tables where they can't see you from the bar. The last thing to go for is the food.
