Fondly called the Mile-High City, Denver can be an adventurous affair for the mountain enthusiast and frequent traveler alike. The Colorado capital is incredibly unique, and while your primary aim would be to get around the trails, hike & discover the rocks around, Denver itself has many wonders to offer. In this post, we have some amazing entertainment ideas worth exploring in Denver on a weekend getaway.

Enjoy the arcade bars

If you love the idea of arcade games and would love to take part in something that’s more fun beyond the booze, you must make time for a Denver trivia bar. Besides great food, amazing cocktails on the menu, you can hang around with the locals, make new friends, and if you are in a group, explore games like giant Jenga, pop a shot, table tennis and more.

Icelantic’s Winter on the Rocks (yearly event)

In case you are in Denver by the end of this month (i.e. January), you can make time for Icelantic’s Winter on the Rocks, which is an annual event for the love of music, organized at night. Fans of EDM wouldn’t mind braving the winter chill for this one, and every year, the lineup only gets better. You can check online for this year’s list. The event happens at Red Rocks Parks & Amphitheatre.

16th Street Mall

For the daytime, when you want to leisurely walk around for a couple of hours, head to 16th Street Mall, which is an awesome iconic area to shop and feel the true spirit of the city. This is close to Larimer Square, another popular attraction, and has some amazing bars, restaurants, and shops. It’s open through the day, but by the evening, you are likely to enjoy better.

Events by the weekend

Denver has a fair share of events that can be explored every weekend, depending on your interests. For instance, Blake Shelton will be at the Pepsi Center in March. The Mission Ballroom has some good events for the first three months of 2020, and if you can grab the tickets, do make time for Celine Dion at the Pepsi Center on March 24.

Final word

There are many websites that enlist events for Denver, so check for that, and we strongly recommend that you explore the arcade bars, which are worth paying for, just for the experience. Find the best table, grab a beer and feel the spirit of the Mile-High City!
