The Whiskey Bar offers potentially the most effusive of the trivia nights in Denver, making it one of the best trivia bars in Denver. Local trivia-goers blame the lack of a food menu for the sometimes raucous nature of the game, while bartenders tend to point to the trivia players’ liberal use of the bar’s expansive drink menu. Whatever the cause, nobody wants the spirited trivia sessions to come to an end at The Whiskey Bar. Trivia here is like no other bar in town and a must-do for anyone ready to experience a mental bacchanal. Trivia starts at 7 pm every Saturday night, with $8 dollar pitchers. The Whiskey Bar is open Monday through Friday, 4 pm to close; Saturday, 11 am to 2 am; Sunday, 11 am to close (closing times vary depending on the season and day).
