The nineteen pubs of the big-thinking Little Pub Company
|Spot Bar & Grill, Denver.|
Dirk's is a classic sports bar at 7500 South University Boulevard in Centennial, with a kitchen that cooks up a decent blackened mahi sandwich, and entertainment that includes cornhole tournaments -- sorry, pervs, it's not a naked game -- on Thursday nights.
16. Three Dogs Tavern
Three Dogs, at 3390 West 32nd Street, is a vintage pub with the original hardwood floors, weekday and weekend happy-hour specials, and a food lineup that includes locally-made elk sausage and a killer fried Oreo sundae.
17. The Pioneer
The Pioneer is located at 2401 South University Boulevard, so it's not surprising that it appeals to the college crowd with tacos, margaritas, Sunday brunch -- with $4 cucumber Bloody Marys -- and free WIFI.
18. The Cooler
This bar at 2045 Sheridan Boulevard, Edgewater, with a patio overlooking Sloan's Lake, is a personal favorite. The bar features an enormous selection of canned beers, $4 Fireball shots on Mondays, and a full menu with a seriously good tempura-fried avocado appetizer and fried cheese curds.
19. The British Bulldog
The historic Punch Bowl at 2052 Stout Street had already gone through several other identities and turned into the British Bulldog when it was picked up by Little Pub four years ago. Today it continues to feature British and Pakistani fare, and opens at 7 a.m. on Saturdays and Sundays for Euro football games.
