Highland Tap is one of the best spots in town no matter the time of day (or night) for drinks and some food. The burger is great, the waits are never too long, and the front patio makes for great people watching. Get a side of the kids mac and cheese (trust us when we tell you it’s way better than the regular version), and watch the K-State folks in the bar area get rowdy when the Wildcats play.

We like this classic LoHi Mexican spot, we just wish we loved it. Hit it for happy hour and a few drinks and bites, but keep your expectations in check.
Colt & Gray
Colt & Gray is "Perfect For" pretty much everything, including probably eating some duck testicles. Get adventurous.
Salt & Grinder
Salt & Grinder is a sandwich shop in Highlands with huge Italian classics like meatball and chicken parm, but also salads, soup, and breakfast food.

Denver's first foray into the cocktail trend is still one of it's best, and the bar snacks aren't bad either.
Briar Commons Brewery
Briar Commons is a brewery in Northwest, and it has a patio great for day drinking or a big group hang.
Escape the crowded part of Tennyson Street at Local 46. It’s a great place for a big group hang, and there’s usually live music.

Postino in LoHi is the type of wine bar we can get behind: good prices, some food, and a great patio.
For large group outings, head to Finn’s in Five Points. It’s a great cocktail bar with rotating food trucks.
