Irish Snug

1201 E. Colfax Ave. Denver, CO 80218 | Central Denver | 303-839-1394

Location Description:

Colfax's rowdiest Irish restaurant-and-bar combo is very popular - and for good reason. The ground floor is a traditional pub with a large dining area, big bar and sidewalk patio that's always crowded when the sun is shining; the basement area is a leather-couch-lined rumpus room with plenty of space to lounge and chat - or play fantasy football, or participate in a pub quiz. The menu is served on both floors; it includes a mix of Irish classics and American fare, and there are more than a dozen international beers on tap (as well as just as many bottled offerings). The bar's snug - a private drinking booth imported from Ireland - is a unique, authentic feature, but it's just as fun to enjoy the nightly beer specials on the large gated patio, or in a non-smoking room. Let's raise a pint to the Snug.

Business Description

It is an important institution and part of Irish culture - a place to come in out of the cold, a living room and hall for social events and an office in which to do business. It is also a stage for performances and for public announcements of all kinds. It serves its most valuable function as it brings together people on common ground for friendly conversation, Ri Ra and Rula Bula.
