Patio Time: Vine Street Pub


This time of year, happy hour demands a sun-drenched patio. We’re always on the hunt for the best spots, and our recent fave is found at Vine Street Pub in Uptown. The two-month-old neighborhood pub (courtesy of Boulder-based Mountain Sun Pub & Brewery) does brisk outdoor business, what with two patios, 21 beers on tap, and an affordable menu of burgers, burritos, and veggie specialties like the Rueben (beer-baked tempeh stands in for corned beef). The staff’s willingness to let you linger over your suds is both a blessing and a curse, depending on whether you’re chillin’ or waiting to chill. But once you score a table, it’s certainly worth the wait. Note: Vine Street does not accept credit cards; bring cash or plan on using the in-house ATM. 1700 Vine St., 303-388-BEER (2337)
