Where to Drink on Christmas Day 2016 in Denver

Happy Holidays and Go Broncos!

What’s better than opening presents Christmas morning? Going out for a drink Christmas evening! In Denver, that is possible because these fine establishments will be open and serving. Everyone should note the Denver Broncos will play the Kansas City Chiefs that evening, and hopefully deliver a win as a holiday gift to the city. Game time is 6:30 PM. If you didn’t get tickets to the game for Christmas or you just want to get out of the house, enjoy these places that will be open on Christmas Day.
