Lodo's Bar and Grill is a downtown Denver staple and is actually part of the reason the term LoDo (Lower Downtown) caught on. The slang was already in use when Lodo's decided to use it in its name, and now it's difficult to find a local who doesn't know what area LoDo refers to. Voted Denver's Best Sports Bar by 7News, Lodo's offers exactly what you'd expect from a sports bar, including being a mere block from Coors Field. When the games aren't on, however, Lodo's enjoys plenty of young, hip patrons who come for the dancing, socialization, and excellent draft beers.
