The Dirty Duck Bar

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.
