Do you want to eat and drink your way through Denver this weekend? Here’s 5 of the city’s newest or most talked about bars this month from upscale outdoor patios to urban gastropubs in or near Denver.
1. Sky Bar
There’s a brand new cocktail bar that’s just hit Stanley Marketplace in Aurora, and it’s dedicated to the location’s history for aviation. Celebrating “the Golden Age of Travel,” Sky Bar is small but mighty and packs a punch when it comes to cocktails in an open-air rooftop space. From their Sherry Cobbler to their Bergamont Gimlet and Royal Hemingway, they’re serving elevated versions of classic cocktails that you’ll want to give a try alongside wine, bubbles, and beer.
Where: 1526 Blake St, Denver, CO 80202
2. Fuel & Iron
A new bar that’s inspired by the city of Pueblo and all its wonderful offerings. Fuel & Iron is the new bar that’s taking over the space that Brass Tracks previously occupied. Inspired by the Southern Colorado town, Fuel & Iron’s got a brass bar and food dedicated to Pueblo. Don’t leave without trying their Slopper, an open-faced burger smothered in green chile and cheese that’s a staple of the city.
3. Dew Drop Inn
Dew Drop Inn opened in 2021 but has quickly become a huge favorite for Denver locals. A gastropub that serves upscale cocktails and a classy, extensive menu of items like crispy brussel sprouts, mussels, and beef stroganoff. They’ve got happy hour every single day from 3pm to 6pm and 10pm to close.
Where: 1033 E 17th Ave, Denver, CO 80218
Jack’s on Pearl offers “two distinct dining experiences” on two separate floors. On their first floor, they offer white tablecloth dining with dishes like prime steaks, pecan shrimp, and an on-site oyster bar. Upstairs, they’ve got an open-air patio with dishes like prime steak tacos, wagyu french dips, and cast iron filets. Both are equally delicious but which floor you choose depends on the vibes of the night.
Where: 1475 Pearl St. Denver, Co
Union Station’s Death & Co is doing a special pop-up dedicated to Japan’s cherry blossoms and drinks. Head up to Suite 6A for House of Suntory, the name of their pop-up. Complete with a cherry blossom tree, a turntable spinning records, and a special menu of Highballs, snacks, and spirits from Beam Suntory. Head to the mezzanine at the Ramble Hotel from 4pm to close on Thursdays through Sundays to experience it.
