Located right next to Coors Field, this place is the former location of Breckenridge Brewery. Take in a juicy burger before a Rockies game and a glass of cold brew. The original Cherry Cricket has been serving burgers since 1945, so you know they have to be good. The soups are very tasty here as well. The pork green chili is the best.

Located in the hip Rino District, The Nocturne is one of our favorites. It's an old warehouse that they converted into a classy jazz club. Don't let the outside fool you, it's gorgeous inside. If you get there early you can usually get a seat at the bar that faces the band and have a few drinks. You can also order dinner or appetizers.

Just west of Denver is one of the premier concert events in North America, Red Rocks Amphitheatre. The theatre is built into the red sandstone formations that make this place truly spectacular.
