If you’re looking for the best things to do in Denver for adults at night, you’re in the right place! Denver’s one of the most fun cities, and it’s filled with endless activities.
In this article, we’re sharing our favorite kid-free activities with something for everyone. Whether you want cocktails with sunset scenery, a relaxing night at the spa, or a unique activity (like ax throwing!), the opportunities are endless in the Mile High City.
We love all that Denver, Colorado, offers, especially the unique nighttime activities that create memorable experiences.
Here’s a quick rundown, and we’ll share more details below!
Whether you’re looking for fun things to do in Denver for date night or with friends, the Cocktails + Tastes Tour is one of the best.
Take a two-hour walking tour to visit some of Denver’s best cocktail bars in the heart of Downtown and listen to fun stories about the local cocktail scene. On the tour, you’ll stop by a few notable bars and restaurants to enjoy cocktails paired with small plates.
The tour starts at the iconic Union Station and ends in one of Denver’s most vibrant districts, Dairy Block.
If you’re interested in a night of shopping, dining, and drinking, Downtown Denver is the place to go.
We recommend exploring Lower Downtown (LoDo) and Larimer Square, where you can find street art, trendy shops, restaurants, and bars. There are also a few theaters where you can enjoy live performances, including the Denver Performing Arts Complex and the Ellie Caulkins Opera House.
Ax throwing has become a popular activity for adults, and Axe Whooping in Denver is an adult’s favorite activity.
Some even say throwing axes offers therapeutic relief! Regardless, it’s a unique way to let loose without the kids.
Axe Whooping offers one- and two-hour throwing sessions and a beer bar to enjoy drinks on your night out.
One of our favorite things to do in Denver for adults at night is to take in Denver’s stunning scenery at sunset. And 54thirty Rooftop is one of the best places for it.
This rooftop bar sits on the 20th floor of the Le Méridien Hotel and offers panoramic city views.
At 54thirty Rooftop, you can enjoy crafted cocktails, globally inspired bites, and a picture-perfect sunset. There are also fire pits to keep warm during cold weather.
Local Tip: Check hours for weather closure updates.
If you’re craving a sweet treat for your adults’ night out, be sure to check out Sweet Action.
This charming, laid-back ice cream shop serves inventive flavors with vegan options. And their adult shakes are delicious!
There are 3 Sweet Action locations in Denver: Uptown, Wash Park, and Jeff Park.
Red Rocks Amphitheatre is a Denver staple, and seeing a show here is easily one of the most memorable kid-free activities.
Magical red rocks surround this open-air theatre, and it's just 20 minutes outside of the city.
Note: Shows are seasonal. From April to November, there are live shows almost every night at Red Rocks.
Denver is known for its incredible craft beer scene, with over a hundred brewpubs, breweries, and taprooms. Checking out some of the best breweries in Colorado is one of the most fun things to do in Denver for adults at night – and during the day!
Join a Denver Microbrew Tour, where you join a guide in one of the city’s unique districts to explore the best breweries.
You can also check out the Denver Beer Trail and take your own tour.
A comedy show is always a good idea if you want to spend your kid-free evening laughing!
Denver has several notable comedy clubs scattered throughout the city, so you'll likely find something any night of the week.
A local’s favorite spot is RISE Comedy, a comedy club with improv shows, stand-up acts, and even karaoke nights.
Treat yourself to a night of rejuvenation at Oakwell Beer Spa, an award-winning Denver spa.
Oakwell Beer Spa is one of the few local spas open later in the evening (until 10:30 PM).

Another one of our go-to things to do in Denver for adults at night is tasting wine at The Infinite Monkey Theorem.
This buzzy industrial-chic winery and taproom is perfect for unwinding and appreciating local wine. The Infinite Monkey Theorem also has regular food trucks and events, including trivia and comedy shows.
For one of the most unique things to do in Denver, check out the International Church of Cannabis.
This former Lutheran church is now a cool local and tourist attraction. It’s even been ranked #1 “Things to Do” in Denver.
Visit to experience a psychedelic interior and hourly music and light shows.
One of the most fun Denver evening activities is exploring hidden speakeasies, and Williams & Grahams is one of the best.
This prohibition-era speakeasy is unlike any other. It’s in a corner bookstore and serves handcrafted cocktails, small plates, and desserts. And the customer service is unmatched!
