Have you ever gone out with friends for "just one drink" and found yourself still sitting in the same spot hours later? Fort Collins is filled with bars and restaurants where this can easily happen – and it seems like the faster the shots go down, so does the sun. Whether it be for happy hour, Sunday funday, or a liquid lunch, here are five Fort Collins bars where day drinking always turns to night drinking. Cheers!

    The Blind Pig

    With a happy hour that lasts pretty much all day on Saturdays, and $1 mimosas on Sundays, it's definitely hard to leave after having just one at The Blind Pig.

    Coopersmith's Pub & Brewing

    Between the pub and pool area, beers brewed right on site, and patios that are perfect for Old Town people-watching, it's always a good time at Coopersmith's...no matter if it's daytime or night.

    The Rio

    The Rio does not mess around when it comes to their margs, and after the three max limit, you won't want to move from your seat anyways.

    Bondi Beach Bar

    The sunny patio is ideal for sipping drinks during the afternoon at Bondi, while the upbeat DJs keep the party going all night long on the dance floor.

    Lucky Joe's

    A Fort Collins favorite, Lucky Joe's is always fun no matter what time it is. Day or night, you can stop by for live music and stay for delicious food and drinks. Time flies when you're having fun!
