Q: What Denver restaurants still have live bands and romantic after-dinner dancing?

A: After-dinner dancing has never seemed to go over well in Denver: witness the demise of Pacific Star. In fact, the only place I'm aware of where you can dine and dance is the Mercury Café (2199 California Street, 303-294-9281,, a Denver institution that serves up fabulous vegetarian and nonvegetarian fare and often features swing-oriented bands like the Hot Tomatoes Dance Orchestra. This isn't your father's supper club, but it can be a ball.
