Happy Hours in Denver can be a little frustrating – either the term”hour” is meant quite literally, and you have just sixty minutes to enjoy a food or drink special, or they only cater to people who end their work day at 5pm. Enter: the restaurants, below, who fill our souls’ need for delicious food, at deep discounts, all while spanning their specials several hours.
1. BRAVA PIZZERIA at AVANTI F & B
Brava Pizzeria takes the sting out of Mondays with their $5 Margarita Pizza, served all day. Even better, you can enjoy this Neopolitan-inspired pie on the deck of Avanti F & B and enjoy a view of the city!
2. EL CAMINO COMMUNITY TAVERN
Is there anything you can get for a dollar anymore? (Okay, anything that’s incredibly delicious!) At El Camino Community Tavern, you can. They take Taco Tuesday very seriously, with $1 street tacos, from open to close. Mix and match by choosing from al pastor, carne asada, carnitas, chicken, chicken chicharrones, veggie and chile tofu.
DON’T MISS IT: The queso is outstanding and not to be missed!
Local art dots the walls at El Camino Community Tavern, a sign of their community focus. It’s rare to drop-in and not see many faces from the neighborhood, yet it’s also a low-key hot spot.
El Camino Community Tavern is located at 3628 W 32nd Ave, Denver, CO 80211. You can find their hours, here.
Postino in the Highlands hits all the right notes when it comes to what we want in an exceptional food deal: the food is delicious and plentiful, and the atmosphere is incredible, think light and bright with a mixture of modern decor and cool touches (an entire wall made of books), it;s no wonder Zagar called Postino one of Denver’s sexiest restaurants.
WHAT YOU GET: A bruschetta board, heaped with your choice of four different toppings. There’s something for everyone – the vegetarian can enjoy Ricotta with Dates & Pistachios, Brie & Apples with Fig Spread (and more!) and the meat lover can order up Salami with Pesto and Burrata, Bacon, Arugula & Tomato, among others. The best part is each bruschetta board comes accompanied with a bottle of wine, all for just $20, making this a total steal of a deal!
WHEN YOU GET IT: Monday and Tuesday nights, after 8pm.
Postino is located at 2715 17th St, Denver, CO 80211. Find their hours, here.
