Best Sports Tavern to Watch Your Favorite College Basketball Team

It's a college game day. What better way to kick things off than hanging out with your best buds at the best sports bar in Denver. Since 2003, Blake Street Tavern has been serving up fantastic food, thirst-quenching drinks, and excellent service. Whether you're a regular, a new patron, or an out-of-towner, we make it our business to give you an unforgettable sports bar experience. One of our favorite things to do for our customers is to host no-holds-barred watch parties.

Televisions Galore

Go big or go home. That's the way we roll when it comes to hosting watch parties for your favorite sporting event. With the fall season upon us, we're all geared up for college basketball. Hanging out with us is the next best thing to being at a game.

We have 65 Ultra HD TVs. Yes, 65. You get epic video and audio quality that ensures you don't miss anything. These TVs capture everything from the athletes' sweaty brows to the squeak of their tennis shoes on the court. At any moment, you'll feel like you can reach out and high-five your favorite player for making the game-winning shot. If that's not enough, we make sure the seating is on point. No matter where you're seated, you never have to worry about missing a high-flying dunk or a fast-break.

Hands down, we're like no other sports taverns in downtown Denver. You're passionate about your college basketball teams, and we're obsessed with creating a friendly, supercharged atmosphere. Here are the current college b-ball watch parties we have lined up for you:

  • Indiana

  • Creighton

  • Wichita State

  • Michigan State

  • ASU

  • UNC

  • Syracuse

  • Colorado

  • Louisville

  • UVA

We don't do watch parties for every game or team, so make sure you check out our Facebook page for updates. We keep it updated so you'll know when we're having a watch party with game sound.

The Tailgate Room

Do you like to tailgate? No problem. We got you covered. There's nothing quite like a tailgate party to get you in the right mood for a ball game. Tailgating has come a long way from the days from chugging down a six-pack of beer in a parking lot. At Blake Street Tavern, we kick it up several notches all year round, so you never miss a chance to get in the game-ready zone.

We've mastered the high-tech version of tailgating with our Tailgate Room. It's the ideal space for hosting watch parties and alumni parties. The seating capacity accommodates 125 to 175 people. We don't charge room rental fees. Additionally, you get these cool features:

  • Massive 130" projection TV

  • Six additional HD flat screen TVs

  • Private full bar

  • Buffet catering available

  • A/V capabilities

It's the season for college basketball, and Blake Street Tavern is the place to be. But don't just take our word for it. Westword editors crowned us 2013, 2014, and 2017 winner for the best sports bar for watching games.

Spectacular Service

Our customers are our top priority. As soon as you step inside the bar, you feel welcomed. It's like your home away from home. Our servers, bartenders, and other employees greet patrons with friendly smiles and good cheer. We keep your drinks refilled. Plus, we make sure your food is hot, ready, and tasty every time. Our first-class customer service is one reason why we received an award as Denver's best sports bar for 2018.

Incredible Food

We unleash the beast when it comes to our food. We give you all the goodness you can handle. You get heaping portions of the tastiest tavern dishes that make your taste buds do backflips. Whether you're in the mood for appetizers, daily specials, or a comfort entree, our menu doesn't disappoint. We offer delectables, such as:

  • Wings

  • Burgers

  • Salads

  • Sandwiches

  • Soups

  • Desserts

Got a hankering for nachos or green chile? Come holla at us. We received Westword's top award for both. On top of that, we stay up late, long after other restaurants have closed. We keep the party going until 1 a.m. so that you can satisfy your late-night food cravings.

Mouthwatering Drinks

We have a fully stocked bar to quench any thirst. Our bartenders serve up everything from beer to martinis. You get your choice of weekend specials that last all day Saturday and Sunday. We keep favorites on tap, such as Jack Daniels Old Number 7, Odell canned beer, and Stoli Vodka and Flavors. We also offer $4 domestic wells and house wines, $5 crafts and imports, and more.
