Howl at The Moon
1735 19th St, Denver, CO 80202
Howl at The Moon has locations all over the U.S. and offers live music, drink buckets- yes buckets and a spot that is perfect to capture your night’s Instagram worthy pics.
1932 Blake St, Denver, CO 80202
This place has some amazing infused liquors, one of the best pickle shots in town and the famous numbing shot also known as the flower shot or buzz bomb. Ask for any of those three and they will know what you’re talking about. You chew on a Szechuan button (electric daisy) that makes your mouth feel numb and tingly and then you follow that up with a shot. It’s a unique and fun experience.
P.S. Yes, it’s legal and yes, it’s safe!
The 1UP- LoDo
1925 Blake St, Denver, CO 80202
This place is a bar AND an arcade all mixed into one. It’s your childhood meets adulting. You can reminisce while playing your favorite game and sipping on your drink of choice.
