To me, a well-poured Guinness is one of the better indulgences in life. According to the brewers of Guinness, it should take 119.6 seconds to pour the proper pint. A Guinness can't be ruined by a bad pour, but it can take away much of its appeal. Luckily, the Irish Snug knows this. This cozy little bar off of Colfax is a nice change from another Irish pub chain downtown, which I haven't been a fan of for a couple of years. It was cool when I was in my partying stage and didn't realize there was life outside of LoDo. The Snug has at least 4 awesome things going for it (besides their superb Guinness pour):
1) Waffle fries! Served plain, nacho-style, or buffalo-style, and available in half-sizes. Mmm.
2) Live music
3) Free parking at the meters in the area after 6 pm (unlike downtown's 10pm)
4) Snugs! These cute little rooms are only big enough for 2-3 people, but they're great for a little quiet couples time if you want to get away from the noise and smoke. You order food and drink through a small stained-glass window that opens on to the bar. Otherwise, you are left in total privacy. Use only as directed!
So go sneak into a snug, eat some waffle fries, drink a Guinness and enjoy!
