Some Different Bars

With over 200 Breweries in the Denver Metro area, bars need to do something different to distinguish themselves from the pack.  Here are a few of my favorite Denver bar’s, in no particular order.

  • First Draft
    • A cool take on a craft brewery tap room.  They have 40 taps and you serve yourself.  You are given a card to scan before you pour your beer, and you are charged by the ounce.  Cool spot in RiNo neighborhood.  Great place to start your night.  Be sure to take a walk around the neighborhood for the cool artwork.  Keep an eye out for a future post on that.
  • Finn’s Manor
    • Cool indoor/outdoor bar.  Definitely better in the summer, otherwise the indoor area get’s pretty cramped.  Usually have a few food trucks available.
  • 1Up
    • A great Barcade with 2 locations.  Most games are only $.25 and drinks are reasonably priced too.
  • Wrangler
    • Denver’s Bear Bar.  Check out the Beer Bust 4-8 on Sundays for $10 all you can drink beer (usually Blue Moon & Coor’s Light)

Denver’s Killer Food Scene

Someone recently told me they thought Denver’s food scene left a lot to be desired.  Their comments got me thinking, so I decided to put together a small list of some of my favorite places to eat in Denver to prove just how wrong they are.

So here they are, in no particular order.  As time permits, I’ll do a quick write up on each.

  • Linger
    • Eclectic street food from around the world and killer cocktails
    • Be sure to try the Devil’s on Horseback to start
  • Park Burger
    • Keep an eye out for the Chef’s Special, which changes every month
  • Root Down
    • Same owners as Linger.  Also has a location in Terminal C (Southwest) at Denver International Airport.
    • They’ve got the best Turkey Burger you’ll ever have.  Don’t skip out on the cocktails!
  • Birdcall
    • My personal favorite is the Southern style with pimento cheese
  • Euclid Hall
    • Be sure to try the pig ears!
