Getting there & around


British Airways offers a direct service from Heathrow. From April to October, outside ski season, Norwegian flies direct from Gatwick four days a week. ba.com norwegian.com


Average flight time: 9h40m. Denver is an easy city to navigate,


and much of it is walkable. RTD runs bus services and light rail, but most people either drive or use ride-share apps. Outside the city, a rental car is essential to get the most out of your visit, and for day trips to the mountains. If you’re coming for the skiing, there are dedicated bus services to all the big resorts. rtd-denver.com


Patrons at Grizzly Rose, a famous country music venue open since 1989


When to go


AFTER HOURS SOCO DISTRICT: This area is home to


four of Denver’s biggest clubs — The Church, Bar Standard, Club Vinyl and Milk — each with their own distinct vibe. On weekends, one cover charge gets you in to all four, so bounce between them for a mix of Latin, techno, house and hip-hop. coclubs.com LARIMER SQUARE: If you want a big night out, but aren’t quite ready for a full-on rave, Larimer Square is a good bet. There’s the speakeasy-style Crimson Room for jazz, stylish Green Russell for cocktails and sophisticated Cru for food and wine. larimersquare.com thecrimsonroom.com greenrussell.com cruwinebar.com GRIZZLY ROSE: Once you’ve got that Rockmount cowboy hat, head over to the Grizzly Rose, a world-famous honky-tonk, for live country music six days a week. Everyone from Taylor Swiſt to Willie Nelson has played here and if you fancy yourself as a bit of a rodeo star, make sure you have a go on the mechanical bull too. grizzlyrose.com

RiNo art district and inspired by the lavish French salons of the 17th century, the interiors of this hotel are sensual and elegant.

cultural attractions, staying in The Art is like bedding down in a gallery. Each floor showcases a particular artist’s work, including big names like Sam Francis and Sol LeWitt, plus there’s a good outdoor terrace bar, ideal for resting weary legs aſter those museum miles. thearthotel.com


Ski season is December to early April (average 10C), with the best snow usually from January to March. Avoid public holidays, weekends and spring break if you want to beat the crowds, plus April and May, which have the most rain and the odd freak snowstorm. Summer lasts from June to August (average 31C) with occasional thunderstorms in the afternoon. September and October (average 24C) are perhaps the best time for outdoor adventures: the weather is warm and sunny, and the crowds are fairly thin.
