The Armoury

2048 Larimer St. Denver, CO 80205 | Downtown Denver | 303-295-0215

Location Description:

Named after the Arsenal soccer team's fan store, the Armoury is an old-world pub that focuses on soccer; spirits heavy on beer and browns; a “Euro pub” menu created by Brian Laird; and a live-music lineup that features punk, post-punk and indie-rock acts. Partners Juan Padro, Kevin Eddy, Brad Beale, Kris Slocum and Kris Baehre (the former owner of Highland Tavern) opened their place in early 2013, taking a few cues from Europe -- where sports, culture and art aren't mutually exclusive, as they seem to be in the States. The refurbished warehouse space is decked out with hardwood floors, exposed red brick, several TVs (including one with a huge projector screen), a zinc bar, and an antique back bar that features a gorgeous porcelain-baked enamel tap system, from which eight brews are poured. The menu goes way beyond standard Brit fare, with salads and homemade soups, flatbread pizzas, sandwiches and charcuterie.
