A Drinking Safe Haven on Denver’s E. Colfax Ave.
There may be few places on Denver’s infamously rough and sometimes wicked street, E. Colfax Ave., where you can feel at complete ease. However, set amidst the ongoing chaos is a gem known as the Three Lions Pub, one of Denver’s coziest and most welcoming pubs that offers a much needed drinking safe haven for visitors to this colorful and eclectic part of the city of Denver. The pub is modeled after some of London’s finest pubs, offering a congenial “pub” atmosphere that has been a central part of Britain’s societal infrastructure for as long as the Brits have been drinking.
Beyond its much desired friendly and welcoming atmosphere, the Three Lions Pub serves as a major gathering place for European football (as in soccer) fans. With walls adorned by a superfluous amount of football memorabilia, the Three Lions pub is not shy about its obsession. Its obsession is taken to a new level with hours that literally revolve around the European football schedule. The Three Lions Pub will open earlier for European football with opening hours sometimes extending into the wee hours of the morning when the sun is yet to arise.
Naturally, the Three Lions Pub’s obsession for football is connected with its passion for enjoying a refreshing pint as you cheer on your favorite team. Every quality London pub offers a collection of fine ales, and the Three Lions Pub is no different. With such classics as Fuller’s independent family brewers, Copenhagen’s Carlsberg beer, and the world famous German wheat beer, Paulaner, the Three Lions pubs offers some of the very same quality European brews that form an intrinsic part of any traditional London pub.
These brews along with wells and wines can be enjoyed for prices that make watching “a bit of footy on the telly” while you enjoy a pint of fine ale a more than affordable hobby. Enjoy $2 off 20 oz. drafts, $1 off 14 oz drafts, $3 wells, and $3 wines. With a happy hour every day, two times a day, from 3pm to 7pm and 10pm to 2 am, and on weekends from 7 am to 11 am, you have plenty of chances to enjoy this safe haven as you sip upon the happy hour drink of your choosing. For those weekend warriors crazy enough about football to awake early morning to root on their team, Three Lions pub offers weekend football specials from 7 to 11 am every weekend. This weekend special includes $3.50 Bloody Mary’s and $3.75 Mimosas in addition to the regular happy hour specials.
Affordable, high-quality drinks matched with an atmosphere that makes one feel at home makes the Three Lions Pub one of the most popular spots for both Denver-ites and visitors alike. Set in a more stodgy and yet colorful part of Denver, the Three Lions Pub offers a safe and cozy haven for people to take a much needed hiatus from the craziness of everyday life and enjoy the big game with fellow fans the way the Brits have always done.
The Three Lions Pub is located at 2239 E. Colfax Ave Denver CO 80206; Tel: 303-997-6886.
