There is nothing like visiting Coors Field in Denver. Whether you’re a Rockies fan, a baseball fan, or just a fan of a great view and a night out, Coors Field is the place to be during baseball season. With the Rocky Mountains as your backdrop, a rooftop deck, and tens of thousands of diehard Rockies fans around you, there’s something for everyone at this ballpark.
(If you can’t make it to a place before a game and want to grab food inside the ballpark, skip the typical baseball eats. Instead, head to the Wazee Market, the SandLot Brewery, or Helton Burger at his trademark stand.)
Before or after the game, head to one of these bars and restaurants surrounding Coors Field to hype up for the action or grab a celebratory (hopefully!) drink.

Biker Jim’s Gourmet Dogs started out as a food cart on Denver’s 16th Street Mall. Our local sausage king, Jim Pittenger, wanted to do more to elevate sausage in Colorado. His first location opened near Coors Field and now you can even find Biker Jim’s locations inside the ballpark. Order a wild boar or reindeer option with toppings that include tahini cauliflower and mac and cheese. Pro Tip: Visit Biker Jim’s LoDo location for a first experience. You’ll find a much larger menu to indulge in compared to the ballpark kiosks.
