Denver's ten hippest bars, or ten biggest hipster bars. Hipsters.
10. Rooftop Cafe at MCA Denver, 1485 Delgany Street
Coming in at number ten is the cafe at Denver's Museum of Contemporary Art, where you can sip a cappuccino or craft beer poured by an edgy bartender after checking out the latest exhibition. The rooftop atmosphere is a hidden downtown gem, plus they book live music most Sundays during the summer. Tell your friends about this one; your status will rise almost immediately.
9. Williams & Graham, 3160 Tejon Street
Williams & Graham comes in at number nine for the prowess and knowledge of its bartenders -- rather than its clientele. The imbibing elite show up not just for the best Prohibition-era cocktails in the city, but for the long, detailed history behind every single ingredient involved in its creation. If facial hair is your thing, you'll want to come here for the waxed mustaches and prize-worthy beards alone.
8. The Matchbox, 2625 Larimer Street
Located in NoDo, a sparsely populated part of town that is slowly gaining momentum, Matchbox is home to many a jorts-wearer as well as an outdoor area in the back for vintage lawn games. (This bar was also one of our "Denver's ten best new bars" of 2011.)
