The hottest summer bar in Denver is the City Park Golf Course.

The handful of taps, usual wine and spirits aren't the draw. It's all about the scenery.

  • "I don't know if you can find a better view in Denver," Scott Rethlake, the city's director of golf, told John as they looked over the course toward the city and the white-capped mountains.

What to know: Whether you golf or not, grab a table or sloping chair on the patio.

  • The most popular time: Sunset.
  • The course just opened in 2021, and quickly became the place to be.

John's thought bubble: Order a pint of Denver Beer Co.'s Venga, a flavorful but crisp Mexican lager, and watch how the light reflects off the downtown buildings and makes the mountains glow.
