Get up, it's game day!

It's no secret that Coloradans love their sports; in fact, did you know that Denver is the smallest city in the United States with five professional sports teams?

We've got:

  • the Denver Broncos (Football)
  • the Denver Nuggets (Basketball)
  • the Colorado Rockies (Baseball)
  • the Colorado Avalanche (Hockey)
  • the Colorado Rapids (Soccer)

Simply put, there is no shortage of sports teams to root for here in the Centennial State - and, lucky for us here in Northern Colorado, there is also no shortage of bars in our area.

Sure, it might be nice (and even more convenient, at times) to root for your favorite team from the comfort of your own home... but nothing beats the atmosphere of a sports bar, especially on a game day

Large-screen TVs? Beer on tap? All-day happy hour? Great menu options? Let's face it - you can't get these things at home (speaking for the majority, at least).

The good news? You can get these things, and completely amplify your game day in the midst, at several bars right here in NoCo.

Whether you're cheering on the home team or another personal favorite (shoutout to my Alabama Crimson Tide), these Northern Colorado bars do an excellent job of bringing all kinds of sports fans together with ample entertainment options for patrons to enjoy.

From football to hockey to soccer to baseball, we've put together the ultimate guide to the 20 best NoCo bars to visit on game day. So grab your jersey and ditch the couch - and visit one (or more) of these bars next time your team is playing:
