Although RiNo is fast becoming baby LoDo, I do like several places there.
2920 Larimer Street
Allows dogs, multiple good beers, usually good food trucks, more friendly and less beer-snobby than other area breweries.
2461 Larimer Street
I like to call this place “Hipster Cobra” because it has a big cobra instead of a normal sign and is full of hipsters, but it has a good happy hour, tasty food and a nice rooftop patio.
3163 Larimer Street
Great if you’re feeling fancy, with a beautiful secluded patio. A little pricey, but very good food and cocktails.
1330 27th Street
It’s like Dazzle in that it has great jazz musicians, but it’s a little more hip and with a very nice 1920s art-deco ambience.
5410 East Colfax Avenue
This is my favorite neighborhood place. It has tasty Spanish-themed fare, a good wine list and a great back patio.
1477 Monroe Street
Mostly I like it because you can get pie next door at the Humble Pie store to go with your beer.
