Brunch and Broncos: Where Wes Welker and Matt Prater Should Drink and Watch the Game

Football is back! While the majority of our favorite players, like Peyton Manning, took the field, a few players have been side-lined and need a few recommendations on where to enjoy a cold one and watch the game.

To help out Wes Welker and Matt Prater, we have put together a short list of where to drink before, during, and after the game.

Before Kickoff

1610 Little Raven Street
Want to eat and drink as much as you can? Go to Zengo. Bottomless brunch starts every Sunday at 9:30 a.m. and goes to 2:30 p.m. For $35 you get unlimited small plates and free flowing brunch cocktails including a Build-Your-Own Bloody Mary Bar. Zengo is also located via a quick walk and trolley ride to the stadium.

Interstate Kitchen & Bar
1001 Santa Fe Dr.
If you are driving to the game you should stop by Interstate Kitchen & Bar for a bite before. The made from scratch food and craft cocktails will leave you feeling full and satisfied. No need for bad nachos at the stadium. Brunch starts at 10 a.m. on Sundays.

Thirsty Lion Gastropub & Grill
1605 Wynkoop Street
With eight TVs and 52 beers on tap, the Thirsty Lion is the perfect place to watch the game. Thirsty Lion is excited to announce that they will be hosting a viewing party for the Broncos vs. Jets game on October 12, where two lucky fans will win tickets to the Broncos vs. 49ers game on October 19. In addition, the gastropub will be offering great deals on drafts on Sundays, $3.50 Bud Light drafts on Sundays from 11:00 a.m.-5:00 p.m.

Mile High Spirits – Temporality Closed
2201 Lawrence Street
Mile High Spirits was one of my personal favorite places to watch Broncos games last year. The distillery is currently closed as it moves locations, but I am hoping that not much will change. From the comfy couches, TVs and an amazing Bloody Mary Bar, it will be like watching the game at home, just better. Check back for an update when they reopen later this year.

Park & Co.
439 E 17th Ave
If you want to sit on a patio and watch the game on some big TVs, Park & Co. is your spot. On the brunch menu you will find some classic dishes and a very long list of burgers, which is perfect for when watching the game. When it comes to drinks they have $9 bottomless mimosas with the purchase of any entree. Mimosas come in flavors like grapefruit, watermelon and orange juice.

ViewHouse Centennial
7101 S. Clinton Street
For those that live in the suburbs, the ViewHouse Centennial is your football headquarter. With game day food and drink specials, 46 flat screens and a whopping 200” hi-def TV – the largest of it’s kind in Denver – gracing the ViewHouse Main Floor Tavern wall, there’s no better place in Denver to cheer the Broncos. Tailgate and chow down on wings, BBQ rib racks, sliders and VH mozzarella sticks. Wash it down with $3 Coors Light Drafts, $5 Colorado Craft Drafts, and a bucket packed with 5 Coors Lights for $15. Food, drinks, prizes and giveaways – it’s Game On at ViewHouse Centennial.

After a Broncos Win

Corridor 44
1433 Larimer Square
There is no better way to celebrate a Broncos win then with some bubbly! Ordering a bottle at Corridor 44 will make you feel like you actually were playing in the game and won.

La Boheme
1443 Stout St.
A strip club just seems like a fitting place to celebrate a win. La Boheme has dancers and bottle service and deals with your ticket. And if you want to celebrate a win like Wes Welker hit up the ATM for a $100 in singles and make it rain as you walk in the door.

After a Broncos Loss

Red Square
1512 Larimer St. R38
If the Broncos ever lose like they did during that big game last, there is no better place to drown the loss than Red Square. Ordering up a carafe of your favorite flavored vodka for $30 will make you feel better for the moment. The hangover the next day will be just as bad losing.

The Horseshoe Lounge
414 E. 20th Ave
Strong drinks and tater tots will definitely make you feel better for about an hour or two after the game ends. The Horseshoe also always has great prices and friendly bartenders. And if it happens to be Mystery Shot night, it will be the cherry on top of your week.
