Downtown Denver has enjoyed a resurgence and revitalization since the city pulled out all the stops to welcome the Colorado Rockies major league baseball team to town in 1995. There are the best bars and clubs in Denver surrounding Coors Field that you should definitely get more familiar with whether you’re a Colorado native, a new Denver resident, or visiting Denver with your friends and family. If you’re joining us on a private or public bike bar tour, Pedal Hopper Denver’s Downtown Tour is our most popular party bike route and we wanted to point out a few boozy options you and your party will have along the way.

Do you like vodka? Us too. Would you like to get your hair done before a night out on the town? Well, there might not be time for that while on your Pedal Hopper bike bar tour but you should definitely make it back here for modern stylings. Vodka, though! At the Retro Room Lounge and Salon, they can help keep your Pedal Hopper Denver pedal-powered party bumping with their amazing selection of the best house-infused vodkas and whiskeys in Denver, which pair nicely with a curated beer list. We have a great working relationship with this funky little Larimer Street staple so make sure to let the bartenders know you’re there with the Pedal Hopper!

Classic arcade games, pinball, skeeball, and giant Jenga make The 1up – LoDo a must-stop on any Pedal Hopper Denver Downtown beer bike tour. If you like to have fun, that is. Just imagine: you’re with all of your friends rotating in and out of an NBA Jam Tournament Edition 4-player cage fight, hydrating with reasonably priced beer and tasty craft cocktails. Not a basketball video game fan? Don’t worry, they have games you’re sure to remember from your childhood like Mortal Kombat, Punchout, Contra, Paperboy and so many others (oh god, I hope we didn’t just date ourselves too much here at the Pedal Hopper…). This place, like many of the stops on our Downtown party bike pub crawl, can get a bit crowded on the weekends so make sure you plan for that when choosing your Pedal Hopper Denver route.

We at the Pedal Hopper remember back around 2009 when The Matchbox was one of the only bars on Larimer Street and served Coors drafts for $0.75 during Colorado Rockies games. While the bar has gained notoriety since then, it still holds tight to its dive bar roots with some of the cheapest beer available in Denver and a breathtaking outdoor patio complete with a bocce ball court. The Matchbox is located in an eclectic old building with exposed brick and a rotating art display featuring local artists. It has a bit of a grungy feel (in a good way, at least in our opinion) so keep that in mind if you and your party are not the grungy dive bar types. The Matchbox tends to get crowded at night but with their huge patio and Colorado’s sunny summer weather, this is one of the best day-drinking spot’s in Denver!

The spirits here are high. Like super, duper, Denver high. We love everything about Mile High Spirits; from their liquor to their upbeat and friendly staff to the amazing space they occupy in downtown Denver which triples as a distillery, tasting room (read: bar), and an epic venue with a state-of-the-art stage and sound system. They have one of the largest selections of infused booze in Denver and they can fulfill an order for a classic cocktail or share some of their contemporary creations with you.
Pedal Hopper Denver’s Downtown party bike tour is perfect for pre- or post-game partying or for experiencing the artsy, industrial side of downtown Denver, specifically the RiNo Art District. We have longlasting relationships with the four clubs listed above as well as dozens of others in the downtown, River North (RiNo), and Lower Downtown (LoDo) neighborhoods. So what are you waiting for? Book your Pedal Hopper Denver bike bar tour while your desired date and time is still available!
