From the looks of this friendly neighborhood dive, it's hard to imagine the place having anything to do with Shakespeare. But the bar's name was actually inspired by a pub in Stratford-upon-Avon, Shakespeare's old stomping ground. It's a far cry from a traditional pub - Denver's Dirty Duck is more of a low-key sports bar that serves cheap drinks and offers a number of weekly specials. With a slightly older crowd, the bar is a nice alternative to the DU bars further west on Evans Avenue. Although the menu is a bit on the short side, the spot does serve burgers, pizza and sandwiches. The Dirty Duck closed temporarily due to a fire in April 2016.
