Irish Pubs 

Fadó Irish Pub Denver

1735 19th St.
Fadó (pronounced f'doe) is the Irish expression meaning "long ago". The term, commonly used as the preface of old Irish stories, has become the name of one of Denver's most popular pubs, located just a stone's throw from Coors Field, the home of the Colorado Rockies in Lower Downtown (LoDo). At Fadó, you'll find hospitable surroundings, good food and good drink, and friendly conversation -- in other words, what the Irish call "craic." Blending the best of the old with the best of the new, Fadó's decor and friendly staff evoke images of the great old pubs of Ireland whereas the style of operating - the music, food and beverages - connects more so with the contemporary pubs and bars of modern Ireland.

DON'T MISS: Fadó holds a popular Pub Quiz every Thursday night starting at 7:30 p.m. Put on your thinking cap, order a pint and join in on the fun!

Tilted Kilt Pub & Eatery 

1201 16th St.
Tilted Kilt is a sports pub that brings classic Celtic decor, big screen TVs, 24 beers on tap and attractive servers all under one roof. The Tabor Center location features patio dining on the 16th Street Mall and a large two-level bar. While paying homage to traditional pub fare, the Kilt also offers burgers, wings and other contemporary food and drinks.

DON'T MISS: The Tilted Kilt's Irish Nachos are a guilty pleasure: fresh-cooked crispy potato chips covered with seasoned ground beef, cheese sauce and tomatoes.

Katie Mullen's Irish Pub & Restaurant

Sheraton Hotel, 16th Street Mall
Bringing some authentic Irish charm to the 16th Street Mall in downtown Denver, Katie Mullen's is a welcome addition to The Mile High City's pub scene. What makes the space unique is that it remains under the guidance and remit of Paul Maye and Tom Cronin who operate four bars in the North West of Ireland - so you can be sure they know their stuff! With four bars, live nightly entertainment and excellent food, Katie Mullen's is sure to satisfy all of your cravings.

DON'T MISS: Katie Mullen's Full Irish Breakfast, featuring two fried eggs, sausage, Bachelors baked beans, brown bread, bacon rashers and black and white pudding. Come to think of it, you may not need lunch after this breakfast. 

Scruffy Murphy's Irish Pub

2030 Larimer St.
Scruffy Murphy's is easily one of the most authentic slices of the Emerald Isle you'll find in Denver. Just minutes away from Coors Field, Scruffy's is the perfect place to grab a pint or enjoy some traditional Irish pub fare - shepherd's pie, bangers & mash, and much more. While you're there, say hello to Andrew Toole, the pub's owner, who is often manning the bar or chatting up the locals.

DON'T MISS: On Wednesday and Sunday, Scruffy's hosts a traditional Irish music session beginning at 7 p.m.

My Brother's Bar

2376 15th St.
My Brother's Bar is a Mile High City institution known for its Beat Generation clientele - this was renowned Beats Jack Kerouac and Neal Cassady's watering hole of choice in the 1950s. Today, not much has changed at My Brother's - you can still get a pint and a burger for under $10 and enjoy one of the city's coolest spots. 

DON'T MISS: The sunny patio in the back of My Brother's. 

The Irish Rover

54 S. Broadway
Amidst the indie rock clubs and cutting edge boutiques of South Broadway, you'll encounter the Irish Rover, a relaxed and friendly pub. Enjoy a pint or two, chat with the locals, sit by the fire place or on your high stool at the bar. International sports fans love the Rover for its six large televisions, playing rousing football (European-style, of course) games.

DON'T MISS: The Irish Rover's huge rooftop patio. One of the best places to above it all in Denver. 

Pints Pub

221 W. 13th Ave.
While there are plenty of Irish pubs in Denver, the city also has a fantastic British-style pub in the shape of Pints Pub, located just down the street from the Denver Art Museum. At Pints, you'll find the charm and personality of the "local", a place that serves as a crossroads for society, where good beer, good food and good conversation are on the bill of fare.

DON'T MISS: The extensive selection of single malt whisky - the menu is 16 pages long!
