Well worth the trek out West, Golden Moon Speak comes to you by way of the spirits wizards at Golden Moon Distillery. Speak is short for speakeasy in this case (secretive!), and you can expect to run into some bodacious botanical cocktails made with GMD's absinthe, gin, and fancier products like their crème de violette and amer dit picon.
Okay, technically not in Denver but it’s one that should always be on your list. Plus, a trip to downtown Golden is always a good time. The drinks here are all crafted with Golden Moon Distillery’s own spirits, so you’re getting the best that Colorado has to offer when it comes to truly handcrafted cocktails.
How to get in: Head down Miners Alley off of 12th Street (around the back of Old Capitol Grill and Smokehouse). Look for the small patio and black garage door, with a small door to the right.
