Denver's five best happy hours

Root Down
We're fans of happy hour, when we hurry to this city's watering holes to blow off steam and eat and drink for cheap. You'll frequently find us at Root Down, winner of our 2011 Best Happy Hour.

But Denver has many more good happy hours, and here are four more of our favorites:

Come happy hour, Lola's covered patio fills up fast, and with good reason. The restaurant serves up a massive board of bar bites -- including tacos, ceviche and nachos smothered in goat cheese queso and barbecued pork -- paired with a beverage list ranging from margaritas to Mexican beer and shots of tequila, all at discounted prices.

This perpetually packed Uptown restaurant doesn't exactly need to offer a deal to keep the crowds coming, but it still features one of the cheapest happy hour lists in town. On weekdays, from 2 until 6 p.m., you'll find $1 sliders, 50 cent deviled eggs and $1 Little Kings Cream Ales, among other options. And seven nights a week, from 10 p.m. until close, $5 buys you a cheeseburger, fries and a can of PBR, Olympia or Little Kings.

3. Interstate Kitchen & Bar
Interstate landed our award for Best Happy Hour Deal this year, thanks to its stellar board of bar snacks and libations -- which all ring in at $4 or under (unless you take the five beers for $9 offer). We're especially enamored of the popcorn, studded with crispy bacon bits and spicy peanuts, though we usually supplement that with fried chicken livers and at least one deviled egg. And thankfully, we can get our fix twice a day: from 4 until 6 p.m. and again from midnight until 1:30 a.m.

The Park Tavern is not a dive. It is just a bar. Just how uppity are you at westword?

That new bar The Matchbox over on Larimer and 26th has a great happy hour that runs until 8 - Great for those of us who have to work past 6 every day!

Totally unrelated to this awesome post (I do love me a good happy hour or five), but do you know of any bars in or around Denver that will be having cheesy drunken Eurovision viewing parties on Saturday? (Cheesy drunken Eurovision viewing parties are the only type of Eurovision viewing parties there are, as far as I can tell. And thank God.) Any help is appreciated!
