Denver >Govnr's Park
Put it in my Face. My friends and I went in on a Friday afternoon, and boy did we luck out. We scored the LAST patio table at 4pm. I recommend getting here early if you wanna enjoy the patio, as it gets packed fast, and stays that way all night. But the specials and service make up for it. 2-4-1 on drafts, Long Islands, well drinks that have premium liquor, and house made cuervo margs. At least thats what our server Haley told us. She had me at drafts. I bellied up with a basket of Tots, a 2 COOOOLD Coors Lights. Im still all fuzzy with happy from that night.
Great Patio. Great atmosphere, great people and great patio. I suggest you go during 2 for 1 because it is expensive.
Lame, not worth time or money. The service is horrible, the food is greasy, and the entire restaurant is very dirty. You'd be better off hanging out downtown instead of this dive bar.
Obviously this review was done to hurt our business.
Best sports, best neighborhood bar, VERY courteous staff..
I had been to Gov park tavern for happy hour, and loved the 2 for 1 beers. It was summer, and the neighborhood is soooo beautiful, making the patio awesome.
Then, I went to catch a Sharks game (not locally shown) as it was the Stanley Cup and I'm a huge fan. The staff was soooo accommodating and went out of their way to get the game up for me. I'll always go back.
It's a very quaint bar with a rich history and a great cozy atmosphere. If you are looking for pretentious people, this is not the place. If you want a great "cheers" type bar, hook it up, it'll be worth it.
Crowded, but that's because it's great. I love Gov Park. It can be quite busy at times, but all in all for a neighborhood bar, it is definitely one of my faves. The food is fab, the service is good (usually), and the happy hour is great. I recently moved out of walking distance to it and can't wait to move back! Thursday-Sunday can be quite busy and sometimes it takes a while to get your drinks, but other than that I have no real complaints. The patio is nice in the summer, and the restaurant inside is SOOOO much better since there is no more smoking!
Love Gov's Park. This is a great place to go to enjoy a few beers and great food with friends. 2 for 1 beer specials are a big plus as is the Super Cold Draft (Coors Light draft that serves beer below freezing) beer. Try the friend pickels. I don't even like pickles but I love these chips. Also, ahi tuna app is wonderful.
This place Rocks. We were a little taken back by some of the previous reviews so hesitated to go in sorry we waited so long. This place has the best happy hour 2 for 1 on the giant beers. my roommate and myself just moved to denver and really have found a new home. The staff is super friendly and attentive. The food is not just typical bar food, huge salads and great sandwiches. It does get real crowded on most nights but they always seem to make time for us. Try the pretzel and cheese dip it rocks
This place is more crowded and has less class than a flea market on a Saturday morning.
I went to Govs Park for a friends birthday last week. The weather was terrible and God forbid if you can park anywhere in the vicinity of the restaurant. It was crowded and absolutely boiling hot inside - think sweaty mullets and you'll get the picture.
If you like to get 2-for-1 big as$ beers, this is place for you. But you better drink fast because it's so flippin hot in there your 2nd beer will be hot before you get back to your table (if you can even find a table). And if you drink wine, good luck. You'll be hungover before the first sip is completely down your throat. Very poor quality.
I can't comment on the food - I was so disgusted by the heat and the atmosphere alone the only thing my menu was good for was trying to fan myself with air. We left and I told my friend I would be personally insulted if she ever asked me to go there again.
There are much better dive bars in Denver. The staff is pushy and the specials aren't that special compared to other bars in the same style category (divey, sports bar). I've been a few times and there's always at least 3 times as many guys as there were girls. The few girls there were not attractive and definitely members of the junior varsity squad of our society. The only people I know who really like this place are these 2 ugly, classless girls from my office who love to be the center of attention, and go there to get picked up by different guys every week. So, unless you're an ugly girl who wants to attention, or, a slezy guy willing to trade looks for moral flexibility, I would avoid this place.
Great Beer specials, but closed in patio leaves inside cold and smokey. Govnr?s Park is a fun bar with great beer specials. However, in the winter they allow smoking on there closed in patio which they always leave the door open too. So not only to you end up smelling like smoke, it is also freezing in there.
