Our pick for this month’s best happy hour? STK Denver.

The scene

You never know what vibe you’ll feel when you walk through the front door into the big, swanky bar at STK Denver. If downtown is buzzing, the crowd will be jumping and the music will be pumping. If it’s a quiet, rainy evening, you might feel romance in the air. In any case, celebrate, because the happy hour menu here holds your chance to enjoy a luscious steakhouse dinner at a fraction of the price of the regular menu.

What to drink

There’s not a single-digit price line on the cocktail list at STK. But during happy hour, the drinks are all half price. That means the Cucumber Stiletto (Ketel One Citroen, St. Germain, muddled cucumber, mint, and lime) and the Not Your Daddy’s Manhattan (Woodford Reserve, Carpano Antica, bitters) ring in at a mere $7.

What to eat

Now we’re talking. At what other happy hour in town can you find tuna tartare crispy tacos and bone-in filet lollipops for just $8? The luscious fillet comes with seasonal greens, so just add the $5 tater tots and you’re having dinner and a cocktail for $20. And who wouldn’t be happy about that?
