Avanti Food and Beverage

Avanti is an eclectic spot full of culture and excitement. Honestly, it could probably be in the nightlife section as well for its lounge-like atmosphere and impressive selection of draft beers, cocktails and wines. However, we’re here to talk about the food.

Avanti is a great choice if you’re with a group of friends who can’t decide on one restaurant. Compiled of seven culinary options in one collective space, Avanti is the ultimate varietal eatery.

Cho 77 is a PotGuide favorite for a variety of reasons. With a prime location on South Broadway, this street-food styled restaurant brings some seriously swell ambiance to the table and is perfect for hitting up with friends after a smoke sesh.

Plenty of small-plate, shareable food headlines Cho 77’s menu and the open kitchen and restaurant layout adds to the already positive vibes. The food is not only delicious, but affordable too! This 4/20, head over to Cho 77’s with your crew and share some awesome Southeast Asian street cuisine!

Plus, they serve breakfast all day (we’d suggest ordering the Big Rig) which is especially great if you wake up late after a cannabis-filled 4/20. So, if you’re looking for awesome vegan eats in Denver or simply want to expand your food horizons, check out Watercourse on 17th!

Acero Urban Cantina

Some say Acero Urban Cantina is one of Denver’s best-kept secrets. One thing is for sure, it’s not your average Mexican restaurant. According to rumors, the top floor of Acero is haunted – see for yourself on Taco Tuesdays, hosted in the Boom Boom Room.

Haunting aside, Acero serves up some awesome contemporary Mexican cuisine in an establishment with character. The restaurant is actually an old Denver mansion, now converted for some unique ambiance. Acero is certainly worth the experience, especially after enjoying some cannabis this 4/20!

As you might expect, Colorado’s most engaging nightlife is found in Denver. The Mile High City offers tons of unique experiences, all of which can be enhanced with a little cannabis.


1up just might be the perfect bar for cannabis enthusiasts, as it’s packed to the brim with an awesome selection of video and arcade games. Blaze one up with your crew and head to one of their two Denver locations for a night of fun!
