Ten super bars in Denver for watching the Super Bowl
Highland Tap and Burger, 2223 West 32nd Avenue: You could spend the whole day at this spot. Brunch will be offered from 10 a.m. to 1 p.m., along with bottomless mimosas and a Bloody Mary bar. Pre-game tailgating from 1 p.m. to 4 p.m. will be on the covered and heated patio, complete with a grill and draft beer. During the game, you can enjoy $3 Highland Tap House Ale and Coors. And after the game, you can call a cab or stumble home.
Wyman's No. 5, 2033 East 13th Avenue: This Bears bar could be the perfect spot to root against the Packers. It's also a great place to get deep-dish, Chicago-style pizza, half-off draft beers and well drinks, and avoid the chaos of downtown.
Three Dogs Tavern, 3390 West 32nd Avenue: Three Dogs falls somewhere between a quiet neighborhood spot and a large, loud sports. With vintage charm and a a good menu, this is a relatively low-key, neighborly spot to enjoy the game.
Sobo 151, 151 South Broadway: It would be too easy to head to the nearest Dave & Busters; why not try a Czech bar known as a good place to watch an Avalanche game? Sobo has plenty of televisions, and rather than consuming burgers and cheap light beer during the game, you can enjoy schnitzel or roast duck, and chase it down with Krusovice or Czechvar beer.
Elway's Downtown, 1881 Curtis Street: How could a Denver football list not include some mention of Elway? But this recommendation has little to do with the new Broncos vice president and a lot to do with chef Robert Bogart's game-day menu, which will include green chile nachos, a three-wing flight, burger sliders and Guinness floats. There will also be $3 draft beers, $5 select wines and $7 select martinis. Remember to wear your team's gear, since the best-dressed fans will win prizes.
