One silver lining of the stay at home order is the option of getting together with family and friends via zoom, FaceTime, and Houseparty. And what’s better than supporting a local spot that’s serving up fabulous cocktails, beers, and drinks to-go?
Once the stay at home order is lifted and we can start to see each other in public again, I’m going to be a proponent of continued virtual happy hours. It’s such a fun way to get together with friends and family you haven’t seen in a while, which is awesome! In some ways, I feel like I’ve been more social during this time than beforehand. But, until then here’s a list of some of the top restaurants by neighborhood to help make your next happy hour that much better!
Let’s explore some of Denver’s best to-go cocktails for virtual happy hour. It’s 5 o’clock somewhere!
Adelitas: to go pitchers of margaritas?? Yes, please!
Asbury Provisions: The most stellar beer list in the city, and they’re delivering along with their cocktails within a 2 mile radius.
The Cookery At Mrytle Hill (mimosa brunch & all of their cocktails): Okay, this might not be happy hour. But who says we can’t have brunch happy hour? (Check out my list of awesome brunch spots that are doing to-go orders for all your weekend needs!). And don’t forget about the pastries over at their sister restaurant Devil’s Food Bakery.
Home Grown Tap and Dough: some burrata and wine sounds pretty stellar right now…. and they have a great beer and cocktail list, too!
Max Gill and Grill: a Wash Park favorite for you seafood and cocktail lovers
Restaurant Olivia: this restaurants is phenomenal. I’m in love with their pasta and even more so with their cocktails, which you can also purchase here.Even better? With a $10 donation they will provide a pasta kit for 4 to a family in need.
Angelo’s Taverna: They’re offering a happy hour every day from 12-5 including a one-topping pizza and bottle of wine for $20! Or, take advantage of their cocktails to go including limoncello, manhattan and a good old dirty martini! Take-out offered along with free delivery!
Cherry Creek Grill: a historic restaurant with the best win/beer/cocktail list (and the best food!) with curb side pick-up. Or, try Hillstone, CC Grill’s sister restaurant which happens to be my fav … oh and ask if they have the cookies! You will thank me later ; )
The Cherry Cricket: this spot is rooted in good food and even better beer! Open from 12-8pm every day offering take-out and delivery. Even better? With every order the Cricket will donate a meal to someone in need within our community. This is why they are THE BEST! May I suggest a cricket burger with PB&J … yes, it’s delicious.
North Italia: North is one of my favorites…. and you can get delivery, too! The best food without ever leaving your house 🙂 I do miss their lattes, but I’m thankful I can still have their pizza in my pajamas
Park Burger: Park Burger is offering select beers to-go & there are seriously some awesome drafts on their list! May I suggest the El Chilango burger & Strawberry Milkshake. You can also visit them in Platt Park, Highlands or RiNo.
Locanda del Borgo: Italian food galore (and an even better wine list!). They have some of THE BEST italian food in Denver. May I suggest their gnocchi.
Cochino Tacos: Cochino is one of the best spots for tacos in the CHV neighborhood. Margaritas to go, too!
Parry’s Pizza: Seriously delicious pizza and great beers too. Delivery is free and they offer take and bake pizzas!
Sushi Co.: Seriously some of the best sushi I’ve ever had. I’m not generally a fan on hand rolls, but theirs are awesome! Oh and did I mention they’re reasonable and have an awesome beer list? They also have a location in Park Hill & Berkeley
