The Best Night of Your Life is happening December 21st, not just because it's the longest night of the year (science!), but because Thrillist is here to help you fill those extra hours of darkness with the best of everything from happy hours to late-night eats. But you know the night wouldn't be complete without a trip to a dive bar, and Denver has some damn fine ones.

Star Bar - LoDo
A dive bar diamond in the rough among all the large party warehouses in LoDo. In addition to their plethora of Colorado craft beers and tasty 'tails, they offer karaoke on Thursday nights, Skeeball, and an outdoor bar/lounge area equipped with adult slushies. The bartenders are also wayyy more knowledgeable than your average dive bar drink slingers.
