Welcome Inn

Eric Gruneisen
The Welcome Inn also goes by the name New Welcome Inn, but there’s nothing new about this bar that’s been run by the same family for over thirty years; the music is loud, the games popular, and the linoleum on the bar worn by generations of elbows. What’s new is the area around the bar: This was once one of the darkest corners in Denver, but since the Blue Moon Brewing Company opened a 30,000-square-foot brewery and restaurant right across the street in 2016, it’s become a clean and well-lighted place. On the outside, anyway. Which means that plenty of developers are eyeing the prime corner occupied by the Welcome Inn. Enjoy the joint while you can.
