How will you spend your Sunday? If you’re like us, it’s with football, food, friends, and booze. Our beloved Broncos are in the playoffs and we must celebrate and cheer accordingly. If you’re looking where or how to spend your gameday, look no further. These Denver bars and restaurants are worthy of your time this Sunday. Enjoy a cold one with us, and GO BRONCOS!
Where: Multiple Locations
The Low Down: Grab a seat at an Illegal’s Pete this Sunday because the local burrito joint will be hosting an all day happy hour. Granted, the day-long deal happens every Sunday but with the Broncos in the playoff your $4 margarita, $2.50 domestic draft beer or $3.50 select craft beer and free chips and salsa (with bar order) will taste that much better.
Avanti Food & Beverage
Where: 3200 Pecos St, Denver
The Low Down: If you haven’t checked out this collective eatery, you need to. Seven micro-restaurants for food and 20 different beer options leave you with plenty to choose from. Two large bars along with a lounge and dining area make Avanti a great place for game day. Reservations are accepted for parties of 10 or more, so make that call. (720) 269-4778
Where: 2641 E 2nd Ave, Denver
The Low Down: It was only right to include this Denver icon on our game day list. Grab one of the best burgers in town and cheer on your team this Sunday. With so many booze, beer, and burger options, you won’t be disappointed. Cherry Cricket happy hour is daily from 3-6 p.m.
Where: 65 Broadway, Denver
The Low Down: Share a special “Orange is the New Blue” punch on game day this Sunday at Punch Bowl Social.

Grab something to eat with their $5 “Broncos, Buds, and Brats” special including your choice of Bud or Bud Light and a bratwurst with sauerkraut and Sriracha beer mustard. Punchbowl’s bowling, ping pong, foosball, and vintage arcade games also make it a great stop for game day.

Classic brunch favorites like scrambled eggs, bacon, and french toast will be served along with an omelet station where you can have your eggs prepared to your liking. Kick back and sip on a specialty drink – your choice of Mimosa, Bloody Mary, or Bellini. For those not so hungry, a regular a la carte menu will also be offered.
