2022 is finally coming to an end, which means more gatherings with friends, nights out on the town, or lunches with a partner. Denver’s forever up-and-coming food scene is paired with amazing breweries and taverns that AppyHour® wants to share with you. 

It’s hard to choose from so many amazing local choices, but we wanted to make it easier for you- with some of our top bars and restaurants for happy hours in Denver (on AppyHour®, too, of course). 

Located in Denver’s Tech Center, this tavern was built for quality guest experience and a damn good time. It’s one of the best places you can grab a coworker lunch, great happy hour, and late night bites. From 11am-2am, Griffin Tavern is a one-stop shop for the best drink specials and cheap food in one of the most cultivated cities in America. Beautiful Denver views and beers can’t be beat at such a great price.

Denver is known for its individuality and creative spirit, and this is no exception at First Draft. This unique taproom experience offers a self-service experience to each customer’s visit, allowing you to pour your own beers and an “open-kitchen” but bar? Interactive encounters only add to the pizzazz, but the biggest draw (for us at least) is the amazing happy hour offered here, on weekdays from 4pm to 6pm. With $5 drinks and a kitchen to match, it’s a perfect date night spot or night out with friends.
