Colfax's rowdiest Irish restaurant-and-bar combo is very popular - and for good reason. The ground floor is a traditional pub with a large dining area, big bar and sidewalk patio that's always crowded when the sun is shining; the basement area is a leather-couch-lined rumpus room with plenty of space to lounge and chat - or play fantasy football, or participate in a pub quiz. The menu is served on both floors; it includes a mix of Irish classics and American fare, and there are more than a dozen international beers on tap (as well as just as many bottled offerings). The bar's snug - a private drinking booth imported from Ireland - is a unique, authentic feature, but it's just as fun to enjoy the nightly beer specials on the large gated patio, or in a non-smoking room. Let's raise a pint to the Snug.

This bar expanded several years ago and added a huge basement to the space. The younger drinkin' crowd usually goes downstairs. The 30-somethings are on the street level. They have a musician playing traditional Irish guitar on the weekend. Wednesdays include a very talented gypsy-jazz group (look up Django Reinhardt to get a feel for the music you'll hear). One evening/wk they have a running club. Pub trivia is on Tuesdays.
While many people would associate water or Gatorade with exercise, those people would be wrong, and the Irish Snug knows it. Every Thursday at 6:15 and 6:30 p.m., waves of runners head out from the pub, following a 5K route around Capitol Hill before returning at a sprint, walk or crawl. Why are they running? Because there is a free spaghetti dinner waiting for them. Oh, and lots of carbohydrate-rich $3 pints of beer. More »
Denver is suddenly inundated with Irish bars, but the Irish Snug led the way, in the process giving Colfax a stunning new storefront: This Dublin-style pub's facade looks like it was built in another century. The vibe inside is slightly less well-worn, although a growing group of loyal customers are doing their best to break the place in. Opened on St. Patrick's Day 2004, the Snug sticks to its theme, from the Guinness on tap to the corned beef on the menu. The bar's snug -- a private... More »
