Irish Pubs 

Scruffy Murphy's Irish Pub

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, it's the perfect place to grab a pint or enjoy some traditional Irish pub fare: shepherd's pie, bangers and mash and more.

DON'T MISS: Thursday through Saturday, Scruffy Murphy's hosts musical acts, from DJs spinning to rock bands shaking the stage.

My Brother's Bar

My Brother's Bar is a Mile High City institution known for its Beat Generation clientele; this was the watering hole of choice for renowned Beats Jack Kerouac and Neal Cassady in the 1950s. Today, not much has changed at My Brother's Bar — 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, tucked around the back of My Brother's.

The Irish Rover

Amidst the dive-y rock clubs and indie 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 fireplace or on your high stool at the bar. International sports fans love the Rover for its six large televisions, broadcasting rousing football games (European-style, of course).

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

Pints Pub

While there are plenty of Irish pubs in Denver, the city also has a fantastic British-style joint in Pints Pub, located just down the street from 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.

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

Nallen's Irish Pub

This Downtown mainstay was opened in 1992 by John and Una Nallen, who moved to Denver after immigrating to New York from County Mayo, Ireland in 1972. 

DON'T MISS: Stop by the pub for a glimpse into Denver’s Irish culture through concerts and Irish dance.

Slattery's Pub & Grill

Head south to Greenwood Village for lunch, happy hour, dinner or late-night eats and drinks. Slattery’s is the perfect spot to grab a bite before a show at Fiddler’s Green or Comedy Works South.

DON'T MISS: Inventive spins on classic Irish dishes, like corned beef eggrolls, Irish nachos, lamb stew, a corned beef sandwich, shepherd's pie, and bangers and mash.
