The Tavern has a weird 80’s hair band nostalgia-meets-Vegas sports bar vibe, and it turns out that Poison and baseball blend together really well. It also doesn’t hurt that the Tavern has some of the best bar food in town. Get some tater tots, head to the large covered patio upstairs, and plan to stay a while. If you can’t be at Coors Field for a Rockies game, watching it here is your next best option.

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.
Do you need us to tell you about Linger? Not unless you moved here yesterday. Oh, right, you probably did move here yesterday.
This is a fast-casual pizza spot, but it’s serving some of the best thin crust in town. For a quick lunch or dinner, it can’t be beat.

There aren’t a lot of spots where you can get oysters, pad thai pig ears, and short rib kielbasa. Thankfully, one of them is right here in downtown Denver.
Federal Bar & Grill
This Jefferson Park hang has better bar food than you'll find in most other spots around town. Maybe this neighborhood is finally coming around.
Denver's first foray into the cocktail trend is still one of it's best, and the bar snacks aren't bad either.

Postino in LoHi is the type of wine bar we can get behind: good prices, some food, and a great patio.
