If you enjoy holding a golf club as much as a good cocktail, you're in luck. Denver's golf-bar scene has grown rapidly in the last few years and isn't showing signs of slowing down anytime soon. The latest destination for traditional golf fans is Hanger Club, an indoor golf and entertainment social club in Lowry. Prefer putt-putt? There are several options in town, including a pair of indoor mini-golf options that also serve food and boozy beverages.

Ready to practice your drive or putt for that hole-in-one while imbibing? Here are your options:

Traditional Golf Bars

The Back Nine
The Walnut Room, 3131 Walnut Street
Baere Brewing, 320 Broadway
The pub-like Back Nine launched in what used to be the music area at the Walnut Room in RiNo. That space now features two virtual golf bays with Trackman 4 technology. While you're playing, order food and drinks from the Walnut Room's full menu, which includes pizza, sandwiches and an extensive cocktail menu. Last year, the Back Nine also debuted at Baere Brewing.

7600 East First Place
This 22,000-square-foot venue includes ten Trackman simulators that allow guests to choose from over 270 golf courses and more than fifty tour venues including St Andrews and Pebble Beach.

The Local Drive
3503 Brighton Boulevard
The 5,200-square-foot Local Drive has three standard golf simulators and two oversized options with larger screens, as well as a full bar and plenty of comfortable couch seating for a lounge feel. “The space is designed to be warm and welcoming,” says co-owner Joe Lynch, who adds that the space is for everyone, whether they love golf or just a good cocktail, and is a great option for large parties and corporate events. At the bar, the name “local” translates to an emphasis on Colorado breweries, distilleries and wineries, with a goal of at least 80 percent local products served. The Local Drive also offers a portable TrackMan golf simulator that can be delivered to any event. Its first location has proven to be so successful that the team added a second in Longmont last year.

Stick & Feather Golf Bar & Lounge
3851 Steele Street
When four avid golfers and friends decided they wanted to make golf more accessible to everyone, the idea for Stick & Feather was born. The 6,000-square-foot space in the up-and-coming York Street Yards development includes golf simulators that allow guests to play almost any course in the world, along with GCQuad sensors. There's also non-golf fun with a large patio, a pool table, board games and shuffleboard, as well as a Gatsby-inspired bar and lounge with plenty of space for conversation.
16011 Grant Street, Thornton
10601 East Easter Avenue, Centennial
Probably the most well-known of the bunch, Topgolf offers climate-controlled hitting bays with televisions in each. The high-tech balls score themselves while you’re aiming at outfield targets. Both locations have three floors, a rooftop terrace with fire pits, pub food and a big drink menu.

Mini Golf Bars

Holey Moley
1201 18th Street
In 2018, the former Spaghetti Factory space became an indoor mini golf bar called Urban Putt. After closing in June 2023, it reopened that September under new owners as Holey Moley, the first U.S. location from the Australia-born concept. It boasts three nine-hole courses "inspired by popular themes inspired by pop culture, nostalgia and childhood memories," it says. It also serves a full food and drink menu.

Molly Martin
Rino Country Club
3763 Wynkoop Street
Handsome Boys Hospitality added this bar complete with a nine-hole mini golf course in May 2022. It's a great place to pre-game for shows at Mission Ballroom, thanks to its solid drink specials; you can also grub at Dalton’s, the walk-up window inside that slings one of the best burgers in town. Pay per game, or opt for a no-brainer of a deal: a lifetime membership for $10.
