The Pub on Pearl

1101 S. Pearl St.
Denver, CO 80210


  • Daily 11am-2am
  • Patio/Sidewalk Dining, Wifi Access
A sports bar where local teams and the occasional Hawkeye game (both owners hail from Iowa) dominate the TV screens, Pub on Pearl sits like an oasis between the I-25 corridor and Wash Park. Despite being butted up against the highway, the bar has a pleasant wrap-around patio where both people and dogs are welcome, and additional seating can be found on the south side of the building, where traffic noise goes virtually unnoticed. Inside the corner location, a large wooden bar is set into exposed brick, facing a room with huge windows and plenty of high-top table seating all around. Weekends are host to beer pong and flip cup tournaments in the back room, and Pub on Pearl offers up sandwiches, burgers and the usual bar appetizers starting at 12 p.m. on Saturdays and Sundays (4 p.m. on weekdays.) The crowd and staff are mostly a younger set, but there is definitely no imposed age range here: Everyone is welcome, and cruiser bikes can be found parked next to scooters outside the neighborhood spot.
