MF City: Denver

This Rocky Mountain metropolis offers plenty of workout and nightlife options

Working Out

GYM
Dumbbells
1200 17th St., Suite 200
303-592-7700

The emphasis at this no-nonsense gym is on the workout, not steam rooms, saunas, or the type of shampoo in the locker room. The "No Meatheads" policy means you won't have to deal with equipment hogs or show-offs. A day pass costs $10, and will get you into the gym's 16th and Tremont location.

OUTDOORS
Washington Park
520 Buchtel Blvd.
303-722-1235

For a bit of scenery, head to Washington park, or Wash park as the locals call it. Run along the 2.6-mile trail, hit some balls on the free tennis courts, or check out the recreation center's indoor pool and gym. The park spans 165 acres in the heart of the city and is always packed with people playing soccer, volleyball, or just enjoying the ample eye candy.

HOTEL GYM
Hyatt Regency
650 15th St.
303-436-1234

This 24-hour, 6,700-square-foot fitness center includes both the expected (cardio, weights, indoor pool) and the surprising (an outdoor hot tub).

 

Going Out

EATS
Panzano
909 17th St.
303-296-3525

Expect fine northern Italian cuisine in an old-world atmosphere. Dinner is well worth the steep prices, but if you want the same great food for less dough, hit Panzano's power lunch.

Willie G's
1585 Lawrence St.
303-575-9000

As far as chains go, this local fave is tops, with seafood specialties, pasta, and steaks to satisfy all those hungry-man cravings.

NIGHTLIFE
My Brother's Bar
2376 15th St.
303-455-9991

The oldest bar in Denver is also the liveliest. The burgers and drinks are the stuff of legend, and with the kitchen open till 1:30 a.m., there's no better way to start — or end — the night.

Tryst Lounge
1512 Larimer St.
303-629-0544

The Mile High City's place to see and be seen. Sample the much-buzzed-about infused vodka, while scoping out scantily clad cage dancers.

The Church
1160 Lincoln St.
303-832-8628

Sinners and saints alike party into the wee hours in this former house of worship. Enjoy three dance floors, two lounges, plus a sushi bar.
