Westword's kind words from 2013: "The winner and still the chomp! Blake Street Tavern blew us away last year with its menu, which includes not only sports-bar staples such as burgers, wings and sandwiches, but some of the best green chile in town. And with the addition of the Underground Social, which converted the vast basement space into a big game room with its own bar filled with craft beers alongside the usual bottled suspects, there are more places than ever to score great food and drink. Bonus points for the private rooms, where your group can give Blake Street's dishes — and, yes, the sporting events on its big TVs — the attention they deserve." ~ Westword

  

"Best Sports Bar for Playing Games"

Best of Westword 2015-2019


 

"Best Sports Bar for Watching Games"

Best of Westword 2013-2019

Three years ago, the Blake Street Tavern moved from the modest warehouse spot it had occupied for almost seven years to a massive space a block south, with a great back patio, a big bar, an ambitious kitchen, an arcade area and plenty of room to watch games — or just the people around you. And now bigger is becoming even better. Blake Street is moving its arcade area to the basement — which is almost as huge as the first floor — where it will offer bocce, cornhole, shuffleboard, Skee-Ball, basketball, leagues and other fun activities, as well as a bar that can accommodate two dozen beers on draft. That will cement Blake Street's reputation as not only one of the town's best sports bars for watching games, but definitely the best sports bar for playing games. ~ Westword

"Best Nachos"

Blake Street Tavern Review – February 2016

Thanks to Denver Party Ride for their kind review:

One of the absolute premier bars in all of Denver is without a doubt the Blake Street Tavern. Since 2003, it has drawn people from all ages with its games, decorations, drinks, sports, mini arcade, pool tables, board games, shuffleboard and more. They also have won numerous awards over the years and gained the respect of people from all over the country. Blake Street Tavern has the kind of atmosphere where you can feel at home and be yourself. A place where you can get your drink on as well as stay completely entertained all night. That’s what we are all looking for in a bar right? 

Selected as one of the
Best Bars in Denver to Watch
the Colorado Rockies
by Mile High Honda, 2016

Mile High Honda named Blake Street Tavern as your next top-notch spot to watch the Colorado Rockies play, here's what they had to say:

View: With 60 TVs tuned to the game, three full-size bars under one roof, and multiple floors to explore, Blake Street Tavern provides an unmatched game-watching experience augmented by game play. You can watch the game in crystal-clear HD or start a little competition of your own in the basement game room known as the Underground Social. Challenge your buds to beer pong, pool, darts, giant Jenga, and much more.
 

Food: Blake Street has flavorful game food down to a science. From traditional wings to a featured lineup of tasty burgers and savory sandwiches, there’s a home run meal for every palate!
 

Brews: The tavern offers revolving drink specials for each night of the week and a comprehensive selection of craft and domestic beer, house wine, and spirits.

The Best Sports Bars in (and Around) Denver

Recognized in 2015 by www.thrillist.com
"BST’s got 60 HD TVs, so you can bet on being able to catch any game here, or get your own game on at the Underground Social, Blake Street’s basement game room where you’ll find entertainment in the form of darts, skee-ball, and more. Still not convinced? Try the green chili which kicks up the heat just enough and is perfect with a pitcher of cold beer."
