Run For The Roses: "For $300 annually you can join RFTR's member's club. You'll get a safety deposit box and each month cocktail kits, rare spirits, tickets to events or other surprises will appear in it."
Ophelia's Electric Soapbox: "Arrive early if you want to sit. There's very limited seating around the dance floor. VIP booths are also available for a price."
Maria Empanada-Riverview: "Come for the dancing but indulge in the tasty empanadas, too. We all have different tastes, of course, but the corn empanada paired with the sweet chili mayo salsa is delish."
Denver nightlife is nothing if not diverse, accurately reflecting a population that spans generations, roots and tastes. Cowboy culture is alive and well, especially at such beloved establishments as the Grizzly Rose, where line dancing and mechanical bull riding still draw crowds six nights a week. But Denver is no one-trick western pony. The city has evolved into a sophisticated urban hotspot with residents who have arrived from across the county, the country and even the world. While they embrace the city's history and rugged edge, they also bring with them a passion for elevated cuisine, fine wines, music of every genre, arts, sports and a love of what's new and trending. Nightlife ranges from such options as elegant Champagne bar Corridor 44 to funky Mercury Cafe with its eclectic music and poetry readings. Locals and visitors can take in a Rockies game at Coors Field, then visit one of the multitude of taprooms, including Trve Brewing where craft beer is poured to the beat of Metal. There is live music and dancing at a slew of clubs and lounges, and there's always a place to simply sit and watch the sun set over the western peaks. What's your pleasure?
