Get a drink at the same place a young Bob Dylan frequented before his big break.
Pete’s Satire Lounge has been a local favorite for a while now and was forced to close their doors at the peak of the pandemic. But the wait is over, and the Lounge has officially reopened this past Saturday, February 20th, which was announced in an official statement from their Facebook. “Our doors have been shuttered for the past 11 months, but we are proud to say we will be officially reopening on Saturday February 20th, come check out the original dive bar of Denver.”
When they say original, maybe they mean the fact that the lounge was the first in a chain of “Pete’s” that have been operating the past 50 years in Denver. Maybe they mean the fact that the legendary Bob Dylan spent time here in his late teens before he became a household name. Either way, Pete’s Satire Lounge has been sorely missed by Denverites, and the Lounge is just as excited to be back.
Their sister restaurant, Pete’s Kitchen, is still closed for indoor dining, but you can have food brought over to the lounge to enjoy on the patio. Try their pork tacos or yummy Chile con Queso with chips alongside a Blue Margarita or refreshing beer. Hours are Wednesday to Sunday from 5-11pm due to the curfew still in place in Colorado.
