It's good to have a drink in hand. Always. That's why coffee shops that double as wine bars and wine bars that offer coffee are wonderful bursts of entrepreneurial genius. Makes for more enjoyable hours of the day--relaxing with a book or working on the laptop with the buzz of lowkey activity as your pleasant whitenoise background--from the start-of-day latte to a happy hour glass of wine.


We've found five of the most-loved dual-purpose establishments in Denver (and more than that, if you add in food, music and books). If you're a local, we want to know which you're particularly fond of. If you're just passing through, it's always nice to know where the locals hang out.
