Sips: Perfect Bars for Valentine's Day

February 2014

Flowers, chocolate, and jewelry can only get you so far. Get some Valentine’s Day inspiration with these ultraromantic Denver bars.

Beatrice & Woodsley

Beatrice & Woodsley’s dreamy ambiance (pictured above) is tailor-made for wooing that special someone. The interior elevates mood-setting to a new level: wisps of silky white drapes dangle above booths, while aspen trees at the entrance evoke a fantastical wonderland. 38 S. Broadway, beatriceandwoodsley.com

The Cruise Room

For an evening of refined romance, few places in the Mile High City compare to the legendary Cruise Room. Conversation flows freely amid the sleek (remodeled!) space, and the retro-leaning martinis will make you and your date feel like you stepped back into the Mad Men era. 1659 Wazee St., theoxfordhotel.com/dining/the-cruise-room

Lala’s Wine Bar + Pizzeria

There’s something effortlessly charming about this Capitol Hill bar and restaurant. It could be the lighting, or the neighborhood—try a stroll under the lampposts of Governor’s Park just across the street—or the fact that splitting a bottle of wine is a date-night classic. We like to nab a spot at the bar for quick access to the friendly bartenders and their vast viticultrual knowledge. 410 E. 7th Ave., lalaswinebar.com
