Support the independent voice of Denver and help keep the future of Westword free.

The Little Pub Company just got bigger, with the opening of the Doghouse Tavern in the Bear Valley Shopping Center (in the space at the intersection of West Hampden Avenue and Sheridan Boulevard that was formerly Bear Valley Inn). "My brother lives in the Sheridan neighborhood and has been after us to open a pub in that area," explains Little Pub owner Mark Berzins. "We look forward to filling the void that was left when the BVI closed."

With Doghouse, Little Pub currently has fourteen watering holes pouring out drinks and food in the metro area, including Wyman's No. 5, Don's Club Tavern, the British Bulldog, the Cooler, the Old Man and Salty Rita's. (Senor Rita's, located at 5007 East Colfax Avenue, closed early this year).

Like several of the other Little Pub saloons, the Doghhouse Tavern pushes pooches both in decor and policy; patrons are encourage to post photos of their dogs on the walls, and pets are also welcome on the patio.

Keep Westword Free... Since we started Westword, it has been defined as the free, independent voice of Denver, and we would like to keep it that way. Offering our readers free access to incisive coverage of local news, food and culture. Producing stories on everything from political scandals to the hottest new bands, with gutsy reporting, stylish writing, and staffers who've won everything from the Society of Professional Journalists' Sigma Delta Chi feature-writing award to the Casey Medal for Meritorious Journalism. But with local journalism's existence under siege and advertising revenue setbacks having a larger impact, it is important now more than ever for us to rally support behind funding our local journalism.
