Because it's kind of off the beaten path, this bar has maintained its rep as a solid local bar and is always my first choice for a beer or cocktail. Don't be fooled by the name -- this is NOT a frat bar or a hipster bar. The patrons are distinctively local, including some old swillers, a few CU students and the occasional softball team.

The bartenders include two local ladies who *really* know how to keep your glass full and don't shy away from mixing a good cocktail. You get the feeling they've been doing this for a long time and care about keeping their patrons happy.

There's no food served, but you can bring in pizza or falafel from the nearby joints. They also serve free popcorn if you ask.

Pros: unpretentious, old school, great bartenders

A surprising place where you can meet and talk to interesting strangers - of every age, any ethnicity and either gender. Somehow the patrons all seem to be above average in intelligence - and the one's who aren't are as sweet as they come. How's that possible? You can order food to be delivered from any of 50 nearby restaurants, they offer free Wi-Fi, and you can even bring your dog in . Unless you're looking for something very specific, it's really hard to fault the place. How often can you walk into a bar and in 15 minutes feel like you're one of the regulars? It's like an old, comfortable sweater - you can spend the whole day in it.

Pros: A place with no attitude and no pretense

Cons: They could use the air conditioner a bit more, but ...

I used to argue like crazy with my friends about what a bar should be. They wanted a bar with lots of hot girls in skimpy clothes. I knew better. Those bars are expensive, and the girls are annoying to talk to. But Tap a Keg gets it right. Anytime you go in there, there's older gentlemen. And they're interesting folks with interesting stories to tell. Play some pick-up pool, learn about the publishing industry or racial politics in the '60s, all while you enjoy a nice cool beer.

Pros: great patrons, open early, open late

Cons: not enough bourbons

I get to NYC once a year. Wherever I go, I try to find a local to hang in. For me, in NYC, it's TaK. Nice people, decent prices, good beer selection, etc. Tonight there were folks speaking german, spanish and scots-english...a friggin United Nations. Oh yeah...the bar tender is a hottie.
