Rockies opening day, and rooftop bars - it's a Denver right of passage. And with so many fun places to hang out this Spring, how can you possibly choose just one? Denver is chock full of fun patios and rooftops to enjoy this gorgeous Spring weather. So get out there, bask in the sun with your favorite IPA in hand (you're in Colorado ya know) - and tell us below which hot spots we are missing.

Happy Camper - Don't worry, eat happy! If you ask us, the experts, there's not a better combination of pizza, booze, vibes, and happiness.

Happy Camper Denver

Linger - If you're not too creeped out by the fact that this was Olingers Mortuary before turning into a hip restaurant, you'll enjoy some tremendous views and fine Asian street-style food.

Linger Denver

Avanti Food & Beverage - The Grand Daddy of outdoor spaces in Denver.  There is stadium seating devoted to viewing, arguably, the best view of our beautiful City. Different chefs incubate new food concepts and there is a steady change of offerings at Avanti.

Recess Beer Garden - This cool new spot in LoHi conjures images of your elementary school playground. Bring your dogs and human friends and enjoy craft beers and American Food.

54Thirty - Check out one of the coolest rooftop decks in the City on top of the new Meridian Hotel. Super cool.

Our Mutual Friend Brewing - Of course another one in RiNo. They won a Silver Medal at the Great American Beer Festival for their wood and barrel-aged sour.

El Five -  Arguably the best view of Denver from one of the nicest patios in town. If you're looking for a perfect place to meet for Happy Hour, this is the place. I've been there 4-5 times around 4:30 PM and it's usually not too crowded so you'll have the pick of the best seats on the patio.

Los Chingones - A perfect deck for sipping on some of the best Margs in town, it's Chingones! (Spanish slang for Bad A$$)

Briar Common Brewery & Eatery - This Jefferson Park neighborhood restaurant and brewery feature a great rooftop deck overlooking the park.


Historians Ale House - A very unpretentious rooftop patio with a full bar, 2 TVs, Mountain Views, and more. Grab a burger and a beer.

Kaos Pizzeria - After a day of play in Wash Park, head over to this quaint spot and grab a Pizza in the front yard of an old home-turned pizza shop.
