In Denver, CO, there is no shortage of great bars to watch the Broncos game at. A good beer and decent burger can make an exciting game even better. And amongst the many taverns that Denver has to offer, there are a few that stand out from the rest.
To point you in the right direction, your friends at Mile High Honda have put together a list of Denver bars with the most exceptional menu and energizing atmosphere.
The Cherry Cricket
Though it has been open since 1945, The Cherry Cricket didn’t evolve into the full-fledged sports bar it is today until the 60s. Since then, their menu has expanded and been built to perfection, delivering what many consider to be the best burgers in all of Denver. Their build-your-own burgers, which include the choice of several different types of meat and exotic toppings, are so impressive that they’ve been featured on the Travel Channel’s Man v. Food.
Since opening, The Cherry Cricket has made it a mission to serve the finest local craft brews. Today, they regularly serve 27 taps in addition to their list of bottles and cans. If beer isn’t to your taste, their drink menu is also packed with a variety of wines, cocktails, and scotch. For dessert, you can even try one of their signature Boozy Shakes.
The Fainting Goat
Voted “Best Irish Pub in Denver” twice, The Fainting Goat has been a staple of the Golden Triangle’s bar scene since 2008. Including games like shuffleboard and darts, the pub is an excellent place to kick back and enjoy a four-hour happy hour Monday through Friday. On weekends, patrons can stop by to enjoy their NFL Sunday Ticket, or even a drink on the spacious rooftop patio—before it gets too cold, of course!
In addition to serving domestic and craft beers, The Fainting Goat’s cocktail menu includes new twists on many classic cocktails. Their Irish Mule and Dark n’ Stormy are both sure to pack a punch during a nail-biter of a football game. And their food menu is filled with scrumptious appetizers and shareable snacks, like their flavorful loaded taters. If you’re not in the mood for dinner, you can enjoy breakfast all day, Fainting Goat style.
Govnr’s Park Tavern
With 34 HD TVs and a host of football specials, you’re bound to have a great time at Govnr’s Park Tavern. Enjoy one of their team watch parties with all your friends, or stop in for Gridiron Bingo on Monday nights. There will never be a lack of delicious drink options, thanks to their large selection of craft beers, wines, and whopping fishbowl cocktails.
If there were only one word to describe the tavern’s menu, it would have to be “fresh”. At Govnr’s Park, all ingredients are locally sourced, and nearly everything on the menu is made from scratch. Their famous pub fare includes favorites like the spicy Wonton Juans and Chun “Egg-Cellence” Burger.
Broncos Go Better with Burgers and Brews
