1. Romantic Downtown Date Night - Hearth & Dram. This trendy upscale restaurant just opened behind Union Station in the brand new Hotel Indigo. We stopped in for the first time and fell in love. They offer over 300 kinds of whiskey and some truly unique and delicious cocktails for those of us who can't drink it neat. Grab a room upstairs, enjoy a romantic dinner, and some amazing drinks.
2. Sunday Night With The Family - Rocker Spirits. This downtown Littleton spot is perfect - even with the kids! They have a great outdoor patio on a quiet side street and will soon have their pizza food truck up and running. They offer 3 different liquors, all made in house, no beer. The craft cocktails however, are the real deal. The bloody mary is the BEST I have ever tried. Once you've finished here, head over to Inside Scoop for a cold treat everyone can enjoy.
3. Casual, Low Budget Night With Friends - Laws Whiskey Tour. Besides the fact that you get to drink a whole bunch of awesome whiskey, the tour is great. We thought it was engaging, the guide hilarious, and we walked away finally knowing how to drink whiskey correctly. For the $10 price tag, you definitely get your moneys worth. When you've finished here, you're not far from our beloved Adelita's. Here you can grab the best Mexican in town for a great price.
4. To Take Those Out of Towners - Green Russell. The vibe is trendy, fun and unique and continually delivers as our favorite speakeasy in Denver. Located on historic Larimer in LoDo they are the ultimate in craft whiskey cocktails. Don't order off the menu - try the bartenders choice. They'll create a custom concoction just for you. After a cocktail or two, head across the street to Osterio Marco for some Italian they're sure to remember.
