Opened around this time last year in the Santa Fe Arts District, this amazing lounge is spinning vinyl records and serving up craft beer and natural wines. ESP HiFi is not like any other bar that Denver has seen crop up recently (aside from Sunday Vinyl), but something that’s more akin to the Japanese style of lounge rooms where the vibes are chill, the drinks are flowing, and the records are spinning unique, carefully curated beats.

39. Revisit Tom’s Diner, a new Palm Springs-themed cocktail bar
Tom’s Diner is finally reopening after 2 year of closure and some new renovations that we think you should be very excited about. The deli has been transformed into a cocktail bar, the interior decor is retro and colorful while much of the parking lot has been transformed into an outdoor drinking patio with astroturf grass, totem poles and fountains.Try not to think too much of the differences–the fact that it’s no longer serving breakfast, at least at the moment, and the fact that it’s no longer a 24-hour diner. Instead, think of this as a little slice of tropical heaven on Colfax and among the Rocky Mountains. The restaurant opens Wednesday, September 28th from 4 p.m. to close Tuesday through Sunday.
