This East Colfax Belgian beer establishment has authentic Belgian drinks (like the Kopstootje, a Belgian shot-and-a-beer combo with Houblon Chouffe beer and a Genever shot) alongside authentic Belgian eats (like their rabbit stew) to soak it all up.
Marg's has street-style tacos, great beer-and-tequila specials, delicious margaritas, and both a sweet back yard and a bunch of TVs inside, depending on what you're in the mood for.
Park & Co. covers a wide range of territories: they've got a killer brunch as well as late-night eats, you can stop by for a burger and a beer (you SHOULD stop by for a burger and a beer!) or just come to enjoy a quality craft cocktail, and their happy hour features a creative list of shot-and-a-beer combos that's sure to please a variety of tastes.
With a simple storefront on 17th Ave, William's Tavern isn't going to be the most beautiful bar you go to. What you WILL find, however, is a ton of great drink specials ($5 shot-and-a-beer during happy hour), games like darts and Trivial Pursuit, and a bunch of down-to-earth people to enjoy spending time with.
A pool table, outdoor patio, and great happy hour specials ($3 you-call-its) round out Tooey's great neighborhood feel.
Bannock Street is a unique spot, with live music, games like ring toss (!), and quirky specials like the Billy Jack (PBR, whiskey, and a cigarette for $5). Great happy hour specials and an open-air front/ patio in back round out this solid Golden Triangle watering hole.
Satellite is a great dive with all the trappings you would expect -- Buck Hunter, shuffleboard, cheap drink specials, and a friendly, neighborhood vibe.
Highland Tavern has a great patio, ping pong table, and brunch. With endless grits, eggs, and beers. 'Nuff said.
Lion's Lair is a dimly lit den where you'll find cheap beers, daily happy hour specials, and live music and comedy.
This tiny dive is a neighborhood favorite for good reason -- the jukebox is full of old favorites, the drinks are cheap and strong, and both the bartenders and clientele tend to be very friendly.
