Maybe you’ve noticed it too, but golf-themed bars are taking over Denver. It’s the hippest way to hang these days, and now that the weather is veering toward chilly, it will be a nice way to keep your swing sharp. Of course you know Topgolf, with its multi-story, climate-controlled, super swanky golf bays, but if you’re looking for something a little more intimate and just as much fun, make your next tee time at one of these indoor greens:

The Local Drive

Located in RiNo (with a Longmont location on the way!), The Local Drive is a “cocktail bar / golf lounge”  boasting five custom Trackman golf simulators, private event spaces, and regularly occurring tournaments, challenges, and competitions.

RiNo Country Club

This ‘70s-inspired golf bar in RiNo is “a little more John Daly than Tiger Woods.” At RiNo Country Club, the beers are cold, the burgers are hot, and, oh hey, there’s also a 9-hole, alcohol-friendly, adults-only putt putt course.

South Broadway Country Club

Established in 2016, the South Broadway Country Club lays claim to being Denver’s first indoor golf facility (complete with a full-service cocktail bar). Explore some of the best courses in the world on SBCC’s top-grade Trackman simulators.

The Back Nine

The Walnut Room, RiNo’s popular purveyor of Chicago-style thin-crust pizza, recently debuted The Back 9, a private space for virtual golf, complete with two Trackman simulators, a full bar, and access to the Walnut Room’s food menu.


More than just mini-golf with beers and nachos, Puttshack is putt putt with the party vibes turned up to 10. The course is hi-tech, fast-paced, and ultra-immersive like no mini-golf you’ve played before!
