(LoHi) Great restaurant, and perfect for brunch. One of our favorite brunch place in town. The food is reasonably priced, the mimosas are strong, and refills come faster than you can ask for them. If you don't have a reservation, the bar area is first-come-first-served, with the added perk that you can get your bottomless mimosas refilled while you wait!

(LoHi) Unique ice cream shop in the center of LoHi with their ice cream served out of a huge milk jug building. Pro tip: there's usually a very long line for the milk jug... if you don't mind a more limited selection, they have an "express" counter just past the milk jug that usually has zero line.

(LoDo) Great Mexican restaurant with a wonderful assortment of food and cocktails. Everything on the menu is great, and isn't terribly pricey for being in the heart of downtown. Perfect place for dinner for a date or a larger group, as they have all kinds of food (not only Mexican) and it's all great.

(LoDo) Easily our favorite brunch place in town! Owned by the same family that runs Root Down, Linger, and other great restaurants in town, Ophelia's is a former brothel turned into an eclectic restaurant with great, food, strong mimosas (very quickly refilled!), and amazing music. If you're looking for a good brunch place, we can't recommend it enough. Every Saturday and Sunday there is always either a live band or a DJ playing themed music usually centering around an artist or genre. Make sure to make reservations, and ask for the "upstairs inner ring" to get the best view of the stage below.

(RiNo) If you're walking around RiNo and looking for a great bite to eat, we recommend Park Burger. This place is no-frills, but just really great burgers. Ask for their burger of the month, which is usually a fun mix created by the head chef. Otherwise, every burger is great. If you're not into beef, their ahi tuna burger is phenomenal.

There's a wide variety of food you can choose from at all the different windows, and the prices are all around reasonable.

(RiNo) A great place to end the night after hopping around RiNo, Voicebox is a Southeast Asian karaoke style bar where you get a private karaoke room for you and your friends. No submitting a song to the DJ and waiting 90 minutes for your name to be called once, Voicebox has several private rooms and you and your group get to choose any song you want! Each room has a server who comes and will take your food and drink orders, and is really a great time. If you're going on a weekend, make sure to make a reservation.

(RiNo) Great Divide has their first taproom in LoDo (Lower Downtown), but we recommend you check out the Barrel Bar in RiNo. Parking is much easier, and you're directly across the street from The Source Hotel and The Woods (check that out in our guidebook for sure!). The Barrel bar is no-frills, just really great Colorado craft beer. If you're in town to try some great brews, make sure you stop by.
