The weather is getting colder and the days are getting shorter; that means no more yard games, court sports, or picnic hangs. At least, not outside — there are plenty of ways to bring the fun inside though. Here are just a few:

Flight Club

Take your dart game to a whole new level with private, reservable playing areas that can host up to a dozen players, plus craft cocktails and shareable bites.


High-tech, ultra trendy indoor mini-golf courses here are paired with live DJs, signature cocktails, and globally inspired share-worthy eats.

Punch Bowl Social

What isn’t there to do at this longtime Denver staple for fun — yard games, table games, arcade games, karaoke, and bowling, plus local brews, craft coffee, and finger food aplenty.

Ace, Eat, Serve

Calling all table tennis fanatics — Ace is THE place to go for indoor ping pong tourneys and college party vibes. The elevated pan-Asian eats are the cherry on top.

Rhein Haus

This massive German beer hall attached to Wally’s Wisconsin Tavern offers brews, brats, and bocce ball courts.

1UP Arcade Bar

With three Denver locations, 1UP is a gamer’s paradise, jam-packed with pinball machines, skee ball lanes, and rows upon rows of retro arcade games.

Upstairs Circus

Get the creative juices flowing at this DIY arts and craft workshop while sipping on cocktails, beer, and wine.
