  • Reservations Accepted
One of Denver's prime spots for Tejano and New Mexico music, a lot of folks come to Rick's Tavern to dance, which might be why the dance floor takes up most of the space in the place. Owned and run by Rick Garcia, it's a lively spot on Saturdays and Sundays (the only nights the place is usually open) when there's live music it's home base for the Rick Garcia Band, who usually plays there at least once a week. The club occasionally hosts line dance lessons as well. It's a friendly joint for most part and heavy drinking and cursing aren't tolerated.
