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

This week's cover story took us to LoDo — or is that BroDo? Allison, a local writer who covers Denver nightlife, used to be a regular in LoDo but now prefers local bars around town — and she listed some of her favorite neighborhorhood bars for us, including Solera and Linger. Readers have other suggestions: Adrift, Don's on 6th, Southside. And then there's this from Alex:

No. Don't go to any of these places. They all suck and you should just stay in LoDo. Please don't turn these places into LoDo...

Adds Sandra:

Wow, Allison, you hit the nail on the head. You are hysterical. I am in my 50s and used to go to Rock Island, The Parrish, City Spirit. It was so much fun back then and the music was great. I would hate it now and am glad I moved out. Thanks for the entertaining article, it gave me a good laugh!

What do you think of LoDo? What's your favorite neighborhood bar?

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. You can help by participating in our "I Support" membership program, allowing us to keep covering Denver with no paywalls.
