Challengers

Cassandra Kotnik
As the name might suggest, Challenger's is a sports bar, featuring TVs liberally adorning the walls so you can cheer on the Broncos, Nuggets, Rockies or Avs -- as well as national and international sports teams -- from all over the venue. The seating is open, affording unobstructed views of the on-screen action, and there are pool tables to occupy patrons during lulls. Challenger's also offers a private patio for smokers and fans of al fresco dining and drinking. If you're hungry, the wings are definitely the best deal here -- especially during happy hour, when they're 30 cents. They come tossed in any of eight different sauces, from Cajun to barbecue to hot to really hot.
