Denver is a city that is known for professional sports team and their fans. Coors Field, home of the Colorado Rockies, is one of the more popular stadiums in Major League Baseball. This year, the stadium is upping its game with the addition of the Upper Level Party Deck — a one-of-a-kind venue offering a rooftop patio experience to baseball fans all over the city. This new venue offers three more restaurants to the already stellar selection of food and drink at the stadium.
CHUBurger Craft Casual Grill
Upper Party Deck
Located on the new Party Deck, CHUBurger Craft Casual Grill brings fare from its popular Longmont location to Denver. With homestyle burgers, fries, shakes, root beer floats and more, this fast-casual restaurant ups the ante in ballpark fare. Treat yourself to a restaurant-style burger in the stadium and follow up with a delicious frozen custard shake. CHUBurger also has some delicious craft beers from its sister brewery Oskar Blues on tap, adding to an already vast selection of beer on tap at the stadium.
The Tavern Ballpark
Upper Party Deck
Having opened its Tavern Mile High location in Sports Authority Field at Mile High in 2012, the Tavern Hospitality Group recently took this concept to Coors Field. Located in the new Upper Party Deck, the Tavern Ballpark offers a unique experience to watch the game in a sports-bar setting while in the stadium. Offering premium cocktails, craft beer and wine, the Tavern Ballpark goes above and beyond available stadium fare and allows guests to drink what they want. Partnering with other Tavern locations in the metro area, Tavern Ballpark also offers games and prizes for a richer ballpark experience.

Helton Burger Shack
Main Concourse behind Section 153
Recently retired, legendary first baseman Todd Helton left a rich legacy to Denver baseball fans, even lending his name to the popular burger joint behind the main scoreboard. Offering gourmet hamburgers, fries, onion rings and shakes, Helton Burger Shack is the perfect place to take the kiddos, or anyone who would like to enjoy a good burger while watching the game. This stand is close to the field, so fans can still listen in on the action while waiting in line. The food is well worth the wait too. Nothing beats a shake on a hot summer day, so check out this Coors Field favorite.
Mountain Ranch Club Bar and Grille
Right Field Corner
Denver, CO 80202
Open to all ticket holders, the Mountain Ranch Bar and Grille is a great place for those who’d like a sit-down meal. Open 90 minutes prior to game time, this place is a good pregame option for those who come early. It is also open for 90 minutes after the game, so you can go and eat while waiting for foot traffic to disperse. With delicious food, excellent service and field view, the Mountain Ranch Bar and Grille offers patrons the opportunity to enjoy their food at their pace without having to eat at their seats. Call ahead of time to reserve a spot on the patio because on a nice, sunny day, there’s not a better seat in the house.
