Mount Vernon
El Gitano Restaurant, Riverside Drive

El Trapiche is a Colombian restaurant located at 15355 E. Colfax Ave. (303-340-5858) and has shown 2003 Confederations Cup matches on Galavision.


Conor O'Neill's located at 1922 13th Street (303-449-1922) brings in TVs to show English Premier League matches (TVs not available at other dates/times).

Lazy Dog Sports Grill located at 2880 Diagonal Hwy (303-440-3355) seems to be an excellent Boulder option for soccer fans.


Aztec Sol located at 2219 W. 32nd Avenue about a block east of Zuni in downtown Denver (west side of I-25, exit Speer west, right/north on Zuni, and right/east on 32nd). Very friendly for soccer fans (even has kits hanging from the ceiling from Mexico, Rapids, and Europe clubs). Call Francisco for more details at 303-256-0787 (serves food and drink). Strongly Recommended!

Croc's Mexican Grill located at 1630 N. Market Street in lower downtown Denver. This location has been used by the Rapids front office and River Ratz for TV viewing parties in the back room. Make sure you call ahead and ask for either Mark or Doug (303-436-1144).

Fadó Irish Pub (also has it's own web site) located at 1735 19th Street in lower downtown (LoDo) behind The Chophouse directly next to Coors Field. While they refuse to show MLS or Rapids matches, this place does show FA Cup Premiership matches, Euro2000, and other European footy for a cover charge. Bad news if there's a home Rockies game anywhere near the time you want to watch Futbol (they will refuse to show anything but baseball). (303) 297-0066

El Rey Mexican Grill & Seafood Bar located at 1705 N. Federal Blvd (2 blocks from Mile High Stadium). Call restaurant GM Fermin Lopez at 303-480-0470 for directions (no reservations). They have paid for Pay-Per-View of all Mexico matches in the 1999 Copa America. Unlikely to show english language broadcast TV sports. 1-2 large screens (depending on event) and a few 17" TVs. Map not provided by US West phone directory so please enter the address at MapQuest.Com for exact directions.

Streets of London Pub located at 1502 E. Colfax Avenue just north of Cheesman Park on Capitol Hill. Recommended by a BIGSoccer poster as a great place that either has soccer on when you come or will gladly put it on by request. Some food items also served. Very smoky small pub (303-861-9103).

Jackson's Hole in the city of Lakewood (suburb 10 miles west of Denver) is a family oriented sports grill and has been one of the River Ratz hangouts showing Rapids soccer located at 675 N. Kipling St (6th Ave freeway and Kipling). Call 303-238-3000 for directions (ask for Phil or Ron). Can be smoky at times.

Bars With Isolated Rooms

While the below locations have not shown a direct interest in helping the soccer fan, they do have special accomodations that feature an extra room (either partially or completely isolated) for watching two sporting events with audio at the same time. In some cases, they may ask a fee to open the extra room so call ahead for exact details (and make sure the side room isn't already reserved).

Lazy Dog at 4100 E Mexico Ave.  Isolated room seats 100. 303-300-6666

Denver, LoDo (Lower Downtown)
Old Chicago at 1415 N Market St.
Side-bar area that can accomodate 50-75 with 1 big screen. Very close to the Pepsi Center and Coors Field so competition will be versus baseball, basketball, and hockey. 303-893-1806

Jackson's Hole at 1520 W 20th Street in LoDo
Right across from Coors Field so don't bother if soccer is opposite a Rockies home game (too crowded even for the side rooms to be used for soccer). A mid-bar area that holds 100 people with 2 big screens and a private party room in the back that will also accomodate 150. 303-295-1384.

Jackson's Hole in the Thornton Town Center (10001 N Grant).  
Isolated room seats 100. 303-457-2100

Bars That Put Up With Soccer As A Last Resort

The reason the below establishments disrespect soccer is because you let them! While we strongly encourage you frequent the above locations first, location and time sometimes warrant visiting one of the below speak-easys. Don't let these places push you around. Be polite and insist on better treatment. The pathetic state of Denver's sports bars will never change if you stay home and watch your satellite. Get out and fight the good fight!
