Zoo
“Lions and tigers and bears – and so much more, on lovely grounds make the Denver Zoo one of the most popular zoos in America. Go underwater with polar bears at Northern Shores, or eyeball-to-eyeball with a gorilla in Primate Panorama. Predator Ridge recreates the plains of Africa with a pride of lions, while Tropical Discovery is rainforest teeming with crocodiles and gila monsters. ”

Gastropub

“Set in Denver’s urban core, PBS Denver is the Mothership of fun. Whether it’s brunch o’clock, a breezy happy hour or late night shenanigans- we got you. A general store in a former life, the vibe of this 27,000-square-foot fun factory is industrial chic and the perfect place to show off your craft beverage ordering skills. We’ve got 3 bars, a scratch-to-craft restaurant and ridiculous entertainment options such as: virtual reality, shuffleboard, life-size Jenga, pool, karaoke, and old school arcade games.”
