Without bars, sports fanatics would have to resort to old-fashioned methods of catching games, like looking at stills in next week's Life magazine and hovering over the field in a zeppelin. Take advantage of a novel invention with today's Groupon: for $15, you get $30 worth of steaks, seafood, drinks, and more at Big Game Restaurant and Lounge located in northwest Denver. Voted Best Sports Bar in Denver by 5280 magazine, Big Game offers a diverse menu of comfort classics, juicy steaks, New York–style pizza, and fresh sushi made from locally sourced ingredients. Savor a Fort Collins-brewed Easy Street Wheat from Big Game's selection of 20 draught beers, or chug a can of Schlitz for old time’s sake ($4). Chase bitter tears of victory or defeat with a flavorful dragon roll stuffed with tempura shrimp, surimi, avocado, and mango with an eel sauce drizzle ($12). An ideal place to simultaneously catch a Nuggets game and a fried zucchini-eating contest, Big Game features a 30-foot HDTV screen capable of displaying 12 programs at once.
Big Game Restaurant and Lounge was an Editors' Choice in 5280 magazine for Best Sports Bar in 2010. The bar was featured in The Denver Post and local blog The Urban Eye. Yelpers give it a three-star average, and 83% of more than 100 Urbanspooners recommend it.
- One order of sinfully delicious fried pickles—OK, plus the gravy-smothered disco fries—and a juicy bison burger later, we were sold. This is the way to watch a game, lounging by a low-slung table near the fireplace under the ginormous screens. – 5280 magazine
- If you are looking for a restaurant to watch the game, but are tired of typical sports bars and bar food, then you have to go to this place. – Llama, Urbanspoon
