The Tavern Uptown

538 E. 17th Ave. Denver, CO 80203 | Central Denver | 303-830-9210

Location Description:

Like the other Taverns, the Tavern Uptown draws a sizable nightly crowd from the surrounding neighborhoods. Those twenty- and thirty-something professionals pack into the dark bar and expansive back patio for drink specials, televised sporting events and socializing. While many come just for the beers and the party -- which is more mellow Uptown than at the Downtown counterpart -- this Tavern also does a substantial dinner business, serving up a menu of American classics. It also has a popular brunch, when those who spent the previous night getting plowed can return to the scene of their undoing for eggs and bacon and a Bloody Mary.
