JAKES FOOD & SPIRIT
RiNo – 3800 Walnut Street, Denver
Every community needs a friendly neighborhood tavern that delivers great meals, cheap drinks and a place to hang out with neighbors and friends. Prior to 2010, the historic Five Points communities of Cole, RiNo (River North), Whittier and Curtis Park had no such place to congregate, so being residents of Five Points ourselves we opened Jake’s Food & Spirits to accommodate the increased number of families, young couples and businesses moving into the area.
Located just a mile-and-a-half from Coors Field in the heart of RiNo, Jake’s is open for lunch, happy hour, dinner, late-night dining and weekend brunch both inside and outside on our 100-seat, dog-friendly patio. Visit us to lounge on the patio, watch your favorite team on one of our 10 HDTVs
