Two Fisted Mario’s Pizza

1626 Market Street
Denver, CO 80202-1514
(303) 623-3523

Sometimes when getting out of a club, all you want is just a great slice or two of pizza. Two Fisted Mario’s Pizza is located right on Market Street in LoDo and stays open late — 2 a.m. Sunday through Wednesday and 3 a.m. Thursday through Saturday. (They’ll sometimes stay open longer as long as there’s a crowd.) Their crust is doughy, thin and crunchy and the pizza sauce they use is delicious. Warning: it will be hard for you to eat just one slice. Also, while you’re waiting for your slices you can do some pretty good people watching and enjoy some loud music on the speakers (usually punk).


3230 East Colfax Avenue
Denver, CO 80206-1712
(303) 322-5219

Mezcal is an authentic Mexican taqueria and cantina located in a part of Colfax that’s been spruced up a lot in recent years. Chef/partner Sean Yontz’ menu embraces both traditional and popular elements of Mexican culture. Their kitchen closes at 1 a.m. every night. The decor is hip and modern and you can choose from a wide range of hot sauces to go with your tacos.

Euclid Hall

1317 14th Street
Denver, CO 80202

If it’s a late night corn dog you’re seeking, you can get one — a large, fantastic one — at Euclid Hall, located just off Larimer Square. Euclid Hall serves food until 1 a.m. on Friday and Saturday nights and midnight on other nights. The space is very open and inviting and it has a menu that’s very creative. If you prefer a brat burger with a pretzel bun to a corn dog you can get it here. Or just feast on some Chicken and Waffles with yummy maple syrup and salty walnuts. It’s a guarantee you won’t go to bed hungry.
