Suggestions needed for next Friday in downtown Denver

Hello. We are a couple of 50 "somethings" who are spending one day and night in DT Denver. We are fairly active, and looking for some clubs, happy hours, live music, etc., that might cater to a more "mature" crowd. We aren't dead yet, but will probably be a little tired after touring around Estes Park and Colorado Springs. I've been researching, but can't seem to find the info I'm looking for. Can anyone help? We'll be staying that one night before our flight, near Union Station. We also like museums and are open to exploring any breweries, wineries, etc. Thanks in advance for any advice.

Try Denver .org. You can limit thier search downe to a single day. I'm in Denver also next week and was trying to decide between some jazz or Bach.

You might check out http://www.thepeclodo.com/ El-Chapultepec Lots of great breweries. Head to RiNo, Start at River North and go from there. Also http://denverbeerco.com/ is very fun thwen the weather is good. Next weekend is supposed to be really nice. Near http://avantifandb.com/ which has a great patio. You can rent bikes and tour the breweries. https://denver.bcycle.com/ there are rental stations all over the place.

Union Station has plenty of great drinking/dining options in a very nice atmosphere.

For drinks - Cooper Lounge or Terminal Bar

For casual dinner - Kitchen Next Door

For nicer dinner or casual lunch - Mercantile Provisions

For breakfast - Snooze

Larimer Square is great for dinner/drinks, including champagne bar Corridor 44 or the prohibition-style "secret" cocktail bar Green Russell

Central Market is a new alternative to Avanti (though I prefer Avanti).

Tons of breweries in RiNo & Highlands, just pick one :-)

Denver Art Museum has a great selection of Western art.

Here are a couple new places I want to check out:

I think the next trend in Denver, post beer, is tequila/whiskey cocktails...wineries aren't a thing at all, except for Infinite Monkey Theorem in RiNo.

Edit: It will be CInqo de Mayo, so expect some crazy shenanigans on the bar scene in LoDo.

have a fun trip.
