8 Holiday-Themed Bars in and Around the Denver Metro Area

Candy canes and glitter drinks are all the buzz this holiday season. Much of the holiday spirit is about giving — all the Miracle pop-up bars are places one can donate towards a great organization and get their favorite holiday drink while doing so. Many other bars around the Denver Metro Area are the first of their kind, like Felix Navidad.

If you’re still looking for some holiday spirit this season, here is a list of places around Denver that are guaranteed to fill your cup with joy.
