They offer a variety of burgers and some other Pub fare, as well as a full bar. Parking is convenient on either Em St or Colfax, as well as in the remote corner of the Dollar Tree parking lot. They offer both indoor and patio...More

I consistently find the Elm to exceed expectations with good food and attentive service. A mix of very locals and general Denverites make it a lovely but not crazy crowd. Patio allows smoking and smells terrible.

We always have such great food, beer, and service. Great neighborhood spot for some wings and a burger.

The Elm is my go-to to grab a beer and watch a game. There are enough TVs for pretty much anyone to find somewhere to watch their team, the drinks are cheap ($2 Coors!), and the food is good bar fare. It's nothing fancy, but...More

The service was definitely less than stellar but the burgers were pretty tasty. The chips were really good too.

Selected this bar because it caters to Boston fans. Wouldn't go back...service was poor, had their chowder and it was more like a potato casserole with bacon on top, and their greek salad was good in terms of ingredients but dressing was lousy.

Was greeted like family when we walked in. Wait staff was friendly and very knowledgeable about the menu. We had the Paddy Rolls and the wings, both the agave-sirracha and the buffalo. The agave-sirracha was sweet with a slight heat, the buffalo was traditional but...More

Enjoy their hamburgers and a beer. A bit loud since it is a sports bar and the crowd can get rowdy. We go there about every 3 or 4 months is all

While passing through Denver, we wanted to catch a New England Patriots game. This was the place to watch the game! We walked in and it was full of patriots fans! We got one of the last tables and ordered chicken nachos, which were very...More

About The Elm: Denver Pub Jeopardy A: The Elm Q: What is... A) an unlikely haven on East Colfax with an uptown vibe? B) a place for an inventive, quick meal on your lunch break? C) a perfect place to meet your friends after work for an amazing happy hour? D) the best place to meet for the game...or to talk trash? If you answered A,B,C and/or D, congratulations! You are officially a regular of The Elm. Welcome. This is, indeed, your unexpected neighborhood pub on East Colfax. You've been looking for us, and we are happy to serve you. History The Elm could not have been a more welcome addition to the Park Hill community when it opened its doors in April of 2004. You can't likely put into words what you feel when you walk through the door – so please, allow us. We offer a great sense of comfort from the classic wood bar, sweet retro fixtures throughout, 12 exceptional tap handles and a vibe straight out of the 1930s. Ambiance Our location's historied days as a drugstore and soda fountain give The Elm the feel of a classic retro gin mill where you might expect to see the cast of Mad Men sipping martinis. Brian, your general manager, is a home grown Red Sox fan, so you Beantown folks, this is your "Cheers"! We even have our very own Norm slinging whiskey your way! But Sox fan or not, The Elm's great happy hour specials, friendly staff and exciting menu will appease even the sorriest of baseball fans (ahem, Yankees supporters). We are your headquarters for every Boston Red Sox, New England Patriots, Boston Bruins, Boston Celtics, and Texas Christian University game. Join us at The Elm!
