The Irish Snug's patio offers a great view of Colfax
Irish Snug Restaurant And Bar 1201 East Colfax Avenue 303-839-1394 www.irishsnug.com
Thursday's the day to sit on the patio and watch runners from the Irish Snug Running Club while you enjoy the ambiance, the cozy corners inside and the outside view at this authentic Irish pub.
Patio hours: Monday through Sunday, 11 a.m. to 2 a.m.
Seats: About 60
Smoking: Part smoking and part non-smoking
Patio perks: Umbrellas, optional heaters and, when there is a band, live music over the speakers (semi-live music)
Busiest time: Happy hour, 3 to 7 p.m.
Slowest time: When it's cloudy and during lunch
Most memorable moment: We usually have to kick a bum out of the patio once a day. They like to panhandle, and we like to not let them. It's usually pretty entertaining.
