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.
