It doesn’t take long to realize Denver is the ultimate spot for a guys-only weekend. No matter what time of year you visit, a Denver bachelor party means you’ll have endless opportunities to embrace the great outdoors—from whitewater rafting to mountain biking, to fly fishing, and skiing, just to name a few. Not exactly enthusiastic outdoorsmen? Don’t count this location off your list just yet. In fact, you can easily fill an itinerary complete with pro sports games, epic nightlight options, and bar hopping from the dozens of breweries and distilleries in the area.
Take advantage of all the “Mile High City” has to offer and plan a Denver bachelor party with an agenda to impress everyone in your group.
What to Do
Denver is an adrenaline junkie’s paradise with an endless amount of outdoor adventures in a single location. Take a “go big or go home” mentality and book a whitewater rafting or ziplining experience to start your trip off with a bang. Or, check out the Denver Climbing Company for outdoor rock climbing that’s open to all levels of climbers.
Fishermen will love the guided trips available through Trouts Fly Fishing, while bikers can opt for a specialized tour or individual bike rental with the Mile High Bike Tours. If you prefer craft beers intermixed with your exercise, the “Bike and Brew” tour is made just for you.
With some of the country’s best skiing in the surrounding area, your Denver bachelor party should definitely include some time on the slopes. Rent a car and make a day trip to Loveland Ski Area or Keystone Resort to experience the mountain adventure Colorado is known for.
Sports enthusiasts will feel right at home at the Mile High Stadium for a night cheering on the Broncos or taking in some hockey over at Pepsi Center. But don’t stress if your group’s visit falls over the summer season. You’ll get to hang in the heart of downtown Denver at Coors Field rooting the Colorado Rockies at the ballpark.
In between your busy schedule, carve out some time to kick back with a couple of beers at Denver’s top-rated breweries. In fact, this city is home to nearly 100 breweries, each with its own unique offerings. In addition to the smaller operations, be sure to swing by the Coors Brewing Company set about 30 minutes outside the city. You’ll learn the history behind this mega-giant brewery and have a chance to taste test along the way. For a more organized guys’ night out, the Colorado Brewery Bus or the Denver Microbrew Tour are both solid options to lead you straight to the city’s top-rated beers.
For the best in Denver's nightlight, head to the LoDo (Lower Downtown) where there are bar and nightclub options to suit any style. However, if a chill speakeasy is more your speed, William & Graham set in the Highland neighborhood is a great spot to spend an evening. You’ll also find a chill time at Punch Bowl Social which serves up quality food and drinks along with bowling, karaoke, a vintage arcade and more.
Where to Eat
Labeled as “a collective eatery,” Avanti Food & Beverage is a unique food and beer hall concept that’s got a little something for everyone in your group. You’ll choose from seven eatery options, plus have access to two full bar serving 20 draft beers, crafted cocktails, and wine.
Check out Tap Fourteen in their Ballpark location (just a ½ block from Coors Field) for the rooftop beer garden of your dreams. This place is all about local draft beers and great eats, both of which can be enjoyed while taking in the Denver skyline.
For those who are serious about food, Work & Class is a must-visit during your Denver bachelor party. They explain their restaurant concept as a “square meal, stiff drink, and fair price” and deliver on all of the above. You’ll find both American and Latin flavors on their menu, and can’t go wrong ordering anything from this highly-reviewed spot.
Where to Stay
Set directly in downtown, The Curtis provides ultra-modern accommodations in a central location for your Denver bachelor party. The best part? You’ll be within easy walking distance to the previously mentioned LoDo nightlife scene. Just a few blocks away, you’ll find another solid option at the NATIV Hotel Denver which delivers luxury, style, and convenience in a hipster-cool setting.
If proximity to Coors Field is high on your priorities, the Crawford Hotel is just the ticket. Set directly in the historic Denver Union Station, you’ll have unique accommodations at less than a half mile from the ballpark action.
