Denver Nightlife

Enjoy all that Denver nightlife has to offer, from top restaurants and bars to dancing, comedy and exclusive clubs. If you need a place to crash after a night on the town, be sure to check out Denver's finest hotels.

From the chic lounges and happening hot spots in Larimer Square and LoDo to the pulsating dance floors of the South of Colfax Nightlife District, The Mile High City knows how to let its hair down and party in style. Put on your best outfit, grab a group of friends or special someone and explore Denver’s glamorous nightlife.

Featured Things To Do

Larimer Square/LoDo

By day, Larimer Square and LoDo (Lower Downtown) are populated by Denver's most stylish residents and boast ultra-hip boutiques, cozy cafes and plenty of people-watching opportunities. By night, the area transforms into the city's most fabulous nightlife experience. Within just a few blocks, you'll find more than enough after-hours excitement to last you for a good long while. 

In the mood for a little bubbly? An opulent champagne and crudo bar in Larimer Square, Corridor 44 is intimate and unabashedly sensual, juxtaposing white leather banquettes and crystal chandeliers with striped walls, oversized chairs and zebra-print carpeting. The bubbly bar features some of the world's most prestigious labels by the bottle, split and glass, as well as a full cocktail bar and wine list. 

Sip some sophisticated spirits at Green Russell. This underground, Prohibition-style speakeasy bills itself as a “chef-driven cocktail bar,” and it doesn’t disappoint in that department. In addition to the inventive cocktails crafted with house-made bitters and small-batch spirits, Green Russell serves up an assortment of appetizers and fresh-baked pie. No password required!

Want to kick back in style in between clubs? Try the Cruise Room, one of Denver's coolest cocktail lounges, located in the historic Oxford Hotel. The Cruise has been frozen in time since its Art Deco facelift in 1933. It was fashioned after a lounge on the Queen Mary, and the original chrome and neon reflect onto wall panels depicting light-hearted "toasts" from around the world. It's a timeless spot to spend your evening in The Mile High City.

For a little old-fashioned entertainment, hit Lannie's Clocktower Cabaret, located on the 16th Street Mall in the basement of the landmark D&F Tower. Lannie's features big bands, sultry singers, comedy and all kinds of after-hours fun, including some of the best burlesque shows in town. 

The best part about the Tavern Downtown is that it's just what it sounds like: a tavern downtown. The bar inside of a historic downtown warehouse has everything sports enthusiasts crave (giant HD TVs screening every game imaginable), as well as thoughtful extras for everyone else (a dance floor, game room and more). Check out the view of downtown and Coors Field from one of three rooftop decks. On any given night you might also find karaoke, trivia or ‘80s music.

If you start feeling the need to get "above it all," head to the Peaks Lounge, a contemporary oasis in the Hyatt Regency Denver, providing the perfect backdrop for sophisticated gatherings with an unmatched view of that fabulous Rocky Mountain Front Range.

Located in the heart of LoDo, Howl at the Moon is part bar and part concert. A high-energy piano bar, Howl features everything from classic rock to hip-hop to pop. Grab your friends, get on the dance floor and get ready to rock out. 

South of Colfax Nightlife District

In the mood for dancing? Head to the South of Colfax Nightlife District, where you'll pay one admission price for several hot nightclub venues that are all within walking distance of each other.

There's The Church, a former house of worship that now bows to the altar of good times. Vinyl, meanwhile, is a multileveled nightlife playground offering up live hip-hop and dancehall reggae, a sweaty dance floor and friendly vibes.

Grizzly Rose

Ask any Coloradan about a good old country bar in Denver and they'll probably provide you with a longwinded, sentimental Grizzly Rose anecdote. It might be the mechanical bull, line dancing, bottled beer, plastic cups, live country music or abundance of people named Dewey ... whatever the reason, this is one of the best cowboy bars in Colorado.
