What's the best dive bar in Denver?

What's your favorite dive bar in Denver? Drew Bixby, our Drunk of the Week columnist, features nearly a hundred great lounges, taverns and saloons in his book Denver's Best Dive Bars: Drinking and Diving in the Mile-High City, due out November 3. But while Bixby includes a list of the city's ten best dives, he doesn't pick a favorite.

That's up to you!

Post your nomination for the very best dive bar in the metro area below, and we'll count the votes and reveal the winner in a few weeks. In the meantime, watch for our dive bar essay contest next week; prizes include a copy of Bixby's book and a chance to read at a weekend's worth of release events in November.
