Bowling at Lucky Strike Lanes (500 16th St.), where a strict door policy—21 or older after 9 p.m.—keeps the preteens at bay. Roll the rock at Wheat Ridge Lanes (6595 W. 38th Ave.) for a more classic experience on regulation lanes.

Taking a salsa dancing class with your significant other at Motion En Fuego (2828 N. Speer Blvd.). If you’ve already mastered your merengue and cha-cha, head over to La Rumba (99 W. Ninth Ave.) and show off your skills.

An espresso at St. Mark’s Coffee House (2019 E. 17th Ave.), where you can watch Uptown’s late-night shenanigans. In Platt Park, the always hopping Stella’s (1476 S. Pearl St.) keeps percolating until midnight on the weekends.
