Summer was made for happy hours and drink specials. Check out our favorite Denver joints that incorporate a little sunshine into their seasonal fun.

Caldonia’s: The folks at Cal’s know you’re willing to stay up a little later on a school night during the summer. So doors often stay open past their normal midnight closing time on weeknights (if it’s still kickin’ – but don’t count on it), and on weekends you can enjoy that awesome patio until 2am. Begin stretching now for the Patio Beach Party on Aug. 6, when we’ll see how low you can go during the limbo contest -- the winner will receive a year’s worth of free beer.
2252 S. Parker Road; 303-752-3829

Whiskey Bar: After playing hooky from work at an afternoon ballgame, whet your whistle at Whiskey Bar, where you get a free PBR after each game with your Rockies’ ticket stub.
2203 Larimer St.; 303-297-0303

Sugar House Grill: Summer weekends begin a day early at Sugar House Grill with Endless Summer Thursdays, where all day long you can order domestic drafts for $1.75, you-call-its are $4, and select apps are two-for-one.
1395 W. Alameda Ave.; 303-777-9900

Café Rialto: An ice cold beer complements anything on a warm day, so Rialto is offering their “Summer of Adventure” through Labor Day, where a complimentary draft beer will show up alongside any burger you order.
934 16th St.; 303-893-2233

Walnut Room: Whether you’re there for the live music or fabulous pizza, be sure to order a tall, fruity glass of red wine sangria – Walnut Room’s specialty summer beverage.
3131 Walnut St.; 303-292-0529
