Location Description:

Yes, My Brother's Bar has a fascinating history: oldest still-operating bar in Denver, Neal Cassady hangout, yadda yadda, etc. Yes, in its current incarnation it's a beloved and anachronistic neighborhood institution that plays classical music, caters to a demographically mixed crowd of crusty old-timers, serious drinkers, families, artists and transplants, and from its stubby galley kitchen offers a strange diner-slash-taproom-cum-lunchwagon menu. But when a burger is this good - and the kitchen cooks 'em up until 1 a.m. - you just don't need anything more.
