Drinks & Nightlife

This is bar, club, music and more all in one. Nice place to cruise down on a bicycle and check out epic graffiti wall murals. Google Maps might take you North of the railroad tracks, but plenty of things to see South of them along streets like Larimer, Walnut, and Blake from Downing to Broadway.

There's been an influx of breweries to the city, this is one of the earlier classic Denver breweries; back in the day pints sold for $4.20 (and they came up with this years before we legalized cannabis), now they're $5-6 (inflation is real). There are a few other nice bars and restaurants in this tucked away area 2 blocks North of Colfax and right by City Park. Highly recommended.

Denver is just as known for its beer as it is for its other 21+ activities. Renegade is one of the earlier breweries in a cycle and semi dog friendly area (patio only). Great taps, food truck almost always in operation.
