WHY HERE: This charming bar claims it's Denver's first and only mezcaleria, and it’s right. Fans of the Mexican liquor can try dozens of smokey options, whether they want it straight up or mixed into a cocktail. WHY NOW: Owned by Brian Rossi, the same person behind the popular Adelitas Cocina y Cantina next door, this friendly spot just opened in 2016. Palenque also has a cantina feel, but with exposed brick and darker lighting, it's a little more of a secret space than a lively Mexican joint. Photo credit: Nick Coffey
