A bachelor party is a rite of passage for men everywhere. It’s a time to spend with your closest friends and put a memorable end to single life. Luckily, you don’t have to travel to Mexico or Vegas to have an unforgettable night out with the guys. Follow this guide through Denver to plan out your night to tie one on before you tie the knot.
Cigars on Sixth
707 East Sixth Ave. (at 6th and Washington)
Denver, CO 80203
Start guys’ night out with a clip and a smoke at Cigars on Sixth. Located just a few miles from downtown Denver, this popular cigar shop also houses a small barbershop in the back. Check in with Tony at Clips on Sixth for a trim and an old fashioned shave before heading over to the cigar shop and lounge. Pick up a few premium cigars to celebrate with later or enjoy them while you’re there. Lined with a few plush leather couches and chairs, the lounge offers a seating area conducive to relaxation and good conversation with old pals.
The Brown Palace Hotel
321 17th St.
After you’re spruced up and ready to begin the night, grab dinner and drinks in the relaxing confines of the Churchill Bar located in the Brown Palace Hotel. This man cave’s dark carpets and maroon colored leather chairs will transport you and your buddies back to the days when men used to sit around, smoke fine cigars and enjoy some hearty grub. With more than 60 cigars, a top of the line humidor, an impressive array of single-malt scotches, small-batch bourbons and wines and spirits, the Churchill’s offerings scream “manly.” Nosh on some appetizers or opt for the Brown’s famous slow roasted prime rib before heading out to enjoy the rest of your evening.
2201 Larimer St.
Denver, CO 80205
Nothing says “bachelor party” quite like whiskey, and that’s exactly what you’ll get at this LoDo haunt. Whiskey Bar offers up tons of history––the building in which its housed is form the 1800s and patrons can still see antique remnants from the venue’s past––but let’s get to the important stuff: the drinks. Now that you’ve had your fill of prime rib from the Brown, you’re in good shape to join in on one of this bar’s whiskey tours. While there are two different tour options, both offer a taste of 48 whiskies and the chance to win cool prizes like a Whiskey Bar t-shirt, gift cards and having your name immortalized on the Whiskey Bar Wall O’ Fame.
Lannie’s Clocktower Cabaret
1601 Arapahoe St.
Denver, CO 80202
Fiancee doesn’t approve of the boys hitting the gentlemen’s clubs during the night out? Compromise is the key to any successful relationship, so relent and opt for Lannie’s Clocktower Cabaret. You and the boys will all get all the thrills of burlesque in a fun, unique atmosphere while keepin’ it classy for the wife-to-be. Fridays and Saturdays offer “Off the Clock” late night burlesque shows and Midnite Martini’s Sexy Circus. Enjoy burlesque dancers, belly dancers, acrobats, comedians, magic and music in one of Denver’s most unique venues.
Tarantula Billiards Bar & Grill
1520 Stout St.
Denver, CO 80202
After the show, head to Tarantula’s to grab a late night game of pool with the guys. After a few games, be sure to head across the street to Leela European Cafe––it’s open 24/7––and order some chili cheese fries, stuffed jalapeños or omelets. You’ll definitely want to soak up whatever remains in your stomach from that whiskey tour before heading home to the soon-to-be-Mrs.
