Favorite Bar on Earth

The Nob Hill Inn - 420 East Colfax Avenue, Denver, CO
In Denver, you'll find plenty of candidates for the Favorite Bar On Earth List along East Colfax Avenue, including The Nob Hill Inn. Established in the early 30s, the current owner's father bought the place in '69, taking over himself in the late 70s. The paintings on the walls are his own creations from the 80s. Like any aged indigenous neighborhood public house, it opens at 08:00am daily ("so you can start off fresh", as they describe), features the classic red booths, and sports a mechanical push-button cash register. At one point in time, there was a phone in a corner so that the numerous state legislators who would hang out during the day could be alerted that they needed to dash back to the capitol building a couple of blocks away when there was a vote.
