Fun and not pretentious place. Staff seems to go out of their way to be helpful, even though it can get crazy busy sometimes. Personally I don't know how they do it. Trying to serve while getting through the crowds would drive me batty. I live downtown and make all my suburbia friends come here. They always love it.

Good happy hour, don't change a thing! Always my go-to spot. The service is great and the deck is beautiful. You can sit outside even when it's cold. They have an area on the roof that can be enclosed with these big glass doors so you can still have a cool view. The lighting is pretty cool, but the heaters are even cooler.

I like their mini bowling lanes. They also have pool and Foosball, but I don't play those- only the bowling. They also have shuffleboard, but again...I'm just a bowling guy.

Best seat in the house is against the railing in the far corner that's kind of right where Market and 20th meet. From that angle you can see Coors Field, downtown skyline and tons of people watching(very entertaining) all at the same time.

The Tavern Downtown is really a great place to go. The patio is the best downtown in my opinion. I really enjoy watching the games on the huge projection screens.

Good view. Great TV angles- Actually good view from wherever you sit which is important for a sports fan like me. Can't wait to watch me some good Bronco football and enjoy some cool cocktails and cheap beers.

Since the Rockies aren't rockin it right now, I can drown my sorrows at Tavern Downtown. They've got the best view of Coors Field. Their rooftop is great for big groups and they have good drink specials. Try the nachos, I love em here.

March Madness in Denver is 73 degrees on Saturday. This was a great place to be for the games and was not disappointed at all. Great specials, huge rooftop and every game imaginable. The service is always on point and staff keeps it fun. I am excited to hangout for baseball season.

Thanks to the Tavern for having a great fantasy football special. We did our fantasy draft downtown and had a great time. We spent $75 on all we could drink draft beers for 2 hours. We ordered some apps and relaxed. As always, great food and good service. Can't Complain.

I was at the Tavern this weekend. Had a great time like usual, the DJ is great and he plays good mix of music through out the night. I particularly enjoy the lounge space with couches. This is a great place to hang out and relax, oh and lets not forget the cool mini-bowling that is so much fun!!!

Game day hot spot.....I'm not a big fan at night on the weekends as I am a bit older then the usual weekend crowd. I do however really enjoy the Tavern. The roof top is huge and the drink specials are great.

Pros: Great location for pre & post Rockies imbibing

Cons: No valet (HAH! Just kidding - don't care about that)

Awesome bar. I dont go out downtown very often, usually keep it to local bars but my friends came into town and were looking for a good time so i figured id check it out. We went down on Saturday night and we had a blast. For one the people watching is amazing...oh man. So fun to just post up and watch the people pile in, you never know what youll see. The staff also seemed to be having a blast, which usually means a fun place to work is for sure a fun place to hang out. This isnt my scene, but for those random nights out it is defiantly a great place to go. I also plan on checking out some rockies game and thats the place im sure ill go. The patio is bada$$, i could only imagine how cool it is in the summer. If you are in Denver you need to check this place out for sure.

I'm a big fan of this place. When I was single, I'd hit it on Friday and Saturday nights - always busy and lots of cute girls. Now that I'm married, I still go, but more on weekday nights and weekend days on the rooftop.

I moved to Denver about 2 months ago for work and haven't had a lot of time to explore the city, but I have made it out to a few bars in the "LoDo" area, Tavern Downtown being one of them. I live in the Ballpark Lofts, so it's a pretty quick trek to get to the bar. The couple times I've been here, I've had an absolute blast. Tons of people dancing and drinking and the rooftop patio upstairs is pretty immaculate with great views. I'm just excited to be up there in the summer. I'm trying to post reviews of a lot of places throughout Denver, so check out my other reviews as I post them.

The Tavern has a nice rooftop patio and some good drink specials. However, this place is always filled up and it can take forever to get a drink. The lines are long and the music isn't that great.

I absolutely love the rooftop. This place has awesome drinks (I recommend the orange slushy one) and a nice view. It can be really packed on the weekends, but I still love it. It's the best place to go after watching a game Coors Field.

I met some friends for a happy hour drink at the Tavern Downtown and was surprised at how packed the downstairs bar was at 5p on a Friday. It became a pleasant surprise when I learned the majority of the crowd were firefighters from all over the country. I'm not usually a fan of an overly crowded bar - but if the crowd is made up of firemen, the more the merrier!! Even though it was crowded, the bartender was really nice and I got my drink quickly. And they offer 2 for 1 drinks during happy hour times which is a plus!

I rarely ever go down to Lodo, but when I do it's generally for a Rockies game and this is the bar I end up at before and after. A couple weeks ago I ended up going to the Brewers game and went to the Tavern after. It was me and like 5 friends and when we got there the place was pretty packed, but we managed to get a table on the patio after a while. They had some guy playing all these cover songs on the rooftop which was actually really cool, so he was taking all these requests and we had him play the Thong Song on his acoustic and it was absolutely hilarious. Anyway, we ended up meeting tons of cool people and these awesome girls there and stayed most of the night. And i'm totally a glutton for this, but they had the dollar pbr's and pizza slices special later on in the night, so i think this may end up being my new place for Sundays. Like i said, I'm usually not one to go to Lodo especially on the weekends, but over any other place i've been to down there, this is probably the best.

The Tavern downtown is terrible. I will never go back. I disliked the bar from previous experiences but gave it another chance to meet up with some friends. I received rude service at the bar, and it was not even that crowded. I feel that I got a "look" when I tipped a dollar for my drink. I thought a buck per drink was a fairly standard tip, and sometimes even generous if it is just a bottled beer, but it was not good enough for these bartenders.

We were heading out of the bar at the end of the night, and got shoved fairly hard by a bouncer trying to get through. I am not a very big person and this shove forced my drink (my full drink) out of my hands, onto the floor, where another staff member acted rude that I had spilled my drink. So, they were rude, wasted my 6 bucks on a pretty martini, and lost a customer. My friends will also not return to this bar.

Tavern Downtown is a really cool place to go, especially for Rockies games, whether you go before the game or just to hang out on the patio during or after the game. It so close you can hear the crowd roar when something in the stadium happens. It's awesome. Music needs to be updated a bit but besides that I recommend checking it out.

I agree with the people who don't like this place. It seems like the goal of the staff has nothing to do with retaining customers or helping patrons have fun. The staff makes this place stuffy with their policies, egos and bad attitudes. The music really is pathetic, it sounds like the time I accidently walked in on the Mutual of Omaha holiday party at the Holiday Inn in the Tech Center. They are lucky they have the luxury of being located in such a high traffic area. If this bar were anywhere else in Denver, it would be out of business. Plus, is that review from "luriden" really just an owner/staff member posing as a customer? I smell BS, plus luriden's only other review states 100% positity about the Uptown Tavern which also has the same ownership as the Downtown Tavern. I don't know anybody who actually likes this place. But who knows? I don't know anybody who likes Hillary Clinton either, but apparently some people do.

Friends and I visited the Tavern last weekend to celebrate my "dirty thirty" and had a blast. We had so much fun dancing the night away to some our favorite tunes from the past like MJ, Journey, Rob Base etc... Is nice to know there is a place that still plays some the old favorites, but also mixes in some of today's hits too. The dance floor was intimate and not intimating. Drinks were fair priced and the late night snacks were good too. I loved the cozy atmosphere with exposed brick and fireplaces. I?ve always known about the patio, but now have found a great place for the cooler months too!

This place has an identity crisis. The word "tavern" implies this place is a bar, not a club... So, after a long day of work, I changed into casual clothes (polo shirt, jeans) and put on a baseball cap (worn straight) and headed over to this place to meet friends to have a few beers. I was carded and let in by the doorman without him telling me I needed to take my cap off. Then, after about an hour of relaxing at my table, some tool, meat-head bouncer comes to my table and says "there are no hats allowed in the CLUB." I questioned his rationale due to the fact that this is a "tavern" (not a club) and the door man let me in without commenting on my hat. The bouncer became irate and tried to start a fight with me.

Overall, the staff kills this place. It is not a club, it's a bar. Clubs have DJs that can mix music, this place has some middle-aged loser playing Sweet Caroline over-and-over while trying to balance his Tavern DJ schedule with his shifts at Arby's. All in all, this place is stuffy and my friends and I avoid it. Which is ironic because we are young professionals with high disposable incomes who most bar owners would like to have as patrons.

Overall, the staff kills this place. It is not a club, it's a bar. Clubs have DJs that can mix music, this place has some middle-aged loser playing Sweet Caroline over-and-over while trying to balance his Tavern DJ schedule with his shifts at Arby's. All in all, this place is stuffy and my friends and I avoid it. Which is ironic because we are young professionals with high disposable incomes who most bar owners would like to have as patrons.

Pros: patio

Cons: staff, worst dj/music in Denver, stuffy atmosphere in what should be a relaxing bar

.

Patio is great, but the service is bad. I would not recommend this "Tavern". ( I use the word Tavern loosely). It really is not a neighborhood Tavern.

Message from The Tavern Downtown

Forged from an historic LoDo warehouse featuring the best roof-top patio downtown, Tavern Downtown has great areas for private parties and events. Catering to the young hip crowd and the post-sports event fans, Tavern Downtown offers a beautiful bar, huge fireplace and lounge area with state-of-the-art plasma television screens, game room, dining room and dance floor. The three roof-top decks overlooking Coors Field and Market and 20th streets are favorites for both Denver residents and visitors.
