As a local, this is a great place to finish the evening after a game at Coors Field: its convenience, ambience, and "cost of entry" are a perfect match whether the Rockies won or lost. Beyond the dive bar (cheap booze) and homestyle cooking (cheap food), the music really sets the vibe. Friendly, unpretentious staff. It's cash only, FYI.

I was told about El Chapultepec by a friend and it did not disappoint. It is a classic dive bar with a phenomenal jazz music vibe. I was skeptical at first but once the band started I had a blast. Cash only but ATM on premises. Definitely a go to in Denver.

Burritos and tacos are basic but... More

We enjoyed the drinks and the music at El Chapultepec! This place is a great spot. I would recommend arriving early to claim a booth or table.

My husband and I went to this restaurant while on a tour. It has a lot of great history as a lot of famous Jazz players have played on that stage. The bar has pictures all around of who have played there. The bar really looks like a dive bar from the outside but it was explained that they don't... More

Too bad we only had half an hour to enjoy this authentic bar and its very good live music. This is the real thing.

Loved the live jazz, old school, it was cash only. So worth the trip. It is now surrounded by night clubs.
