Beer and Cigars

Oscar’s is less than 2 weeks new. Located in the middle of the Denver Tech Center, they specialize is steaks, ribs and seafood. I went there this evening and had the Kansas City style ribs and tried the New York steak. They are still working out some of the operational kinks but it didn’t detract from the evening. It was a little on the pricey side and our food was OK – to good. They had a few homemade touches such as five unique steak sauces and coleslaw. I do wish they had darker beer on tap.

Recommendation: You should give it a try! The Denver Tech Center needs another steak place and this could be it.

Located on Arapahoe Road just west of I-25.  For this and other restaurants in the Denver Tech Center go to the DenverTrek directory.


St. Patrick’s Day is just around the corner! Here’s what’s happening in the Denver Tech Center.  


O’Shea’s Taverna, located at Belleview and Yosemite, is showing off its Irish side this St. Patrick’s Day with traditional Irish dancers, bagpipers and traditional food including corned beef and cabbage. (The entire menu was being finalized when I talked to them today.) Entertainment is planned throughout the day. Call O’Shea’s for details. 303-220-1100


Darcy’s, located on S. Ulster just north of Belleview, will have entertainment on both the eve of St. Patrick’s Day and on St. Patrick’s Day. Plan on enjoying bagpipers, Irish step dancers and an Irish band at 8 PM. Oh, and they’ll have plenty of Guinness, Murphy’s and Harp so – no worries! Call Darcy’s for specific details. 303-770-0477


Did I miss any local (DTC) area pubs? I don’t think Bennigans counts…. or does it?

OK, while officially NOT in the Denver Tech Center area, I went to the Celtic Crossing this week-end to smoke a cigar and enjoy a pint (or two). It’s a mere 5-10 minutes south of 470. On I-25 go south to Castle Pines Parkway exit 188 two blocks on your left. They have a small but lively cigar room adjacent to a larger pub area and restaurant. It’s an enjoyable, friendly crowd. Of course! It’s an Irish Pub after all!

Speaking of beer, there are only TWO establishments in the Denver Tech Center that have a brewmaster. One is “CB Potts” on  Arapahoe Road , the other is “Rock Bottom” on County Line RoadThe handcrafted beers are great at both locations BUT Rock Bottom also offers a constantly changing menu of specialty “cask conditioned” beers available. I love their “Naughty Scott”.

Since the new smoking ban went into effect, many places that used to allow cigar smoking no longer do. There are only two places in the Denver Tech Center area that do.

  • Stanley Pappas Cigars – It’s actually a green train car with “Greenwood Village Express” on its side. The train car is in the middle of parking lot of Arapahoe Road just East of I-25. 


  • The Rubusto Room across the street from the Park Meadows movie theaters on Park Meadows Drive. They recently “expanded” the smoking area to include the entire place. The original cigar lounge was very small – maybe accommodating 20 people or so. So the expansion into the bar area was a welcomed change.

Any others places? Please post and let us know where!
