The problem with a neighborhood bar? It has to appeal to the whole neighborhood — the grumpy old man on the corner who sweeps the sidewalk, the empty-nesters two doors down, and that no-good kid who drives around too fast with his bass thumping loudly. Occasionally, though, the formula comes together, as in the case of this Cherry Creek spot, which underwent a major renovation in late 2016. The Hound's menu retains pub standards — a naked, perfectly cooked burger, fish and chips with a generous amount of vinegar — but it now also boasts Korean fried chicken, a banh mi smeared with duck pâté and oysters on the half shell. And with a virtually unchanged bar (one that was always perfect for the ’hood), you can buy your nosy neighbor a pint — and maybe rethink building that privacy fence.
