The Ballpark neighborhood has a new hotel, right across the street from the main entrance to Coors Field, where fans of baseball and spring weather are now enjoying both, since the Colorado Rockies' home opener drew about 21,000 ticket holders (the maximum number allowed under current COVID restrictions) to the Thursday and Friday games. Some of them might have found their way inside the Rally Hotel, where the Original and the Rally Bar are now open. 

The Original is serving up such all-American favorites as half of a roasted chicken or prime rib with Hasselback potatoes, but you'll also discover nutty stuff like wagyu beef sliders made on mini croughnuts. And over at the Rally Bar, the playful snack theme continues, despite the upscale, classy decor. Housemade mini corn dogs, pretzel-crusted Scotch eggs and pimento cheese dip accompany both traditional and newfangled cocktails, with a color-shifting Rally Up serving as the house drink. See the Rally Hotel's website for hours, reservations and other details.
