Rocky Top Tavern will open in the former Hill-Top Bar space
The old Hill-Top Bar just north of I-70, at 4907 Lowell Boulevard, was one of the tiniest dives in town -- but it had a big group of fans, and that small spot produced a lot of memories. Now the bar is about to be resurrected: as the Rocky Top Tavern. See also: The dozen best dive bars in Denver
