Why locals love it
Denver has so many hip hangouts that the designer interiors and smart clientele can start to feel monotonous, no matter how trendy they all may be. Right downtown, the Star bar is the antidote to so much cool, a simply comfortable and welcoming place that doesn't try too hard to be special, and therefore is.
Why you should visit it
More than fifty years of business have made the Star Bar a local favorite. They serve unpretentious but good craft beer, keep a well-stocked bar, have a pool table and a few arcade games, offer a slip-out-the-back patio and a rotating list of specials. Recent renovations have also made the space more inviting than ever.
Star Bar maintains a convenient B.Y.O.F. (bring your own food) policy, so feel free to pack your leftovers or pick up your favorite takeout.
