Denver's five best rooftop patios

When the crush of Larimer Square becomes too overwhelming -- as it sometimes does on weekend nights -- we rise above it on Tamayo's rooftop, where we down margaritas, chips and salsa and maybe an entire Mexican feast. This spot also has not just an urban but a mountain view, which means a great glimpse of the sunset if we're there at the right time.

Justin Cucci's redesign of the old Olinger Mortuary is stunning, and the views from inside Linger, which I review this week, are lovely. But the views of the cityscape from the rooftop deck, high above everything else in the area and just below the old Olinger sign, are so stunning that they're actually breath-taking. Enjoy them over a pitcher full of cocktails poured specially for this part of the restaurant. This is only phase one of the patio; we can't wait to see what comes next, when Linger adds a bar and kitchen up there.

Honorable mentions go to The Tavern Downtown, LoDo's Bar & Grill, Jackson's LoDo and Sports Column.
