Pick a sport, any sport — almost. All three venues are near Downtown. Just have somewhere to lie down afterwards. Feeling indecisive? A rooftop bar is rarely a bad shout in Denver. Avanti has one of the finest, atop shipping containers housing several food truck-style eateries, while the outdoor bar at Linger offers fine views of the skyline.
The dry-rubbed chicken wings and pretzel knots with beer cheese take bar snacks to another level. There are complimentary brewery tours Tuesday-Saturday at 3pm and 4pm. At the more casual end, basement bar The Meadowlark attracts a young, artsy crowd with its jazz nights, indie bands and DJs. Part of an eight-strong group, the Warwick adds a dash of charm to the usual chain experience with floor-to-ceiling windows in its classic and contemporary bedrooms. Great for exploring Union Station and the LoDo district, Hotel Indigo is a recent addition to a city where construction work is at full throttle.
It opened in January and mixes industrial chic and Scandi minimalism with the friendly vibe Denver is famous for. Rooms including wheelchair-accessible ones are capacious if a little anonymous. And its bar has more than whiskies. The four suites incorporate designs by local artists, and the nine smaller rooms may have mural artwork, log-cabin stylings, a private deck or a hot tub.

Travel Tips for Colorado First-Timers

Find a dispensary. You know, just Denver things. Did you even visit the Mile High if you didn't take a day trip into the Rockies? And don't worry, you'll be back in time for a beer at Dive Inn.
