Mynt Mojito Lounge is nestled in the heart of LoDo, just off of the 16th Street Mall. Priding itself on being the exception to Denver’s bar scene, rather than the rule, it offers a variety of unique and delicious mojito concoctions. With candlelit tables, couches and cozy corners, it is the ideal destination for co-workers, friends and the more romantically inclined. And after 10 p.m., it turns the lights down and the sound up, transforming the lounge into a vibrant late-night stop.
