El Chapultepec is a dive bar known for its live jazz music, cheap drinks, and tacos - everything that a dive bar needs! Bring your cash, and come prepared for a night full of music and fun. 


  • Congratulations, you've found one of Esquire's Best Bars in America. Get a Bud and a shot of Jack at 8:45, right before the jazz starts. Come 90 minutes earlier if you want to sit at a table.
  • Food? They serve food here? Who the hell cares? Come here for the music!
  • Grab a cheap beer and a seat at the bar with a view of the stage. The groups that play here are great, so you can go on any night and hear live music. You can grab a burrito outside after last call.
  • Live music 7 days a week!!
  • The El has been around since 1933. This tiny place - with neon beer signs, a stage the size of a half dollar, and vinyl banquettes - hosts local acts AND stars like Sinatra, Fitzgerald and Jagger.
  • Get there around 7 to get a table. The beef is ok but the beans have more flavor.
  • Eclectic. Awesome.
  • Music and drinkin'
  • Just go for the drinks and music. The food is terrible.
  • Cash only! Don't even think of using your CC. Great consistent live music!
  • A downtown landmark since 1933, El Chapultepec is the swinging home to Denver's finest jazz and R&B artists, who command the stage in the tiny club seven nights a week.
  • Cash only bar!
  • best live jazz in denver
  • Great dive bar for jazz on Sunday nights!
  • Just do it
  • Awesome jazz band and food!
  • Great dive bar in the heart of lodo. Low key with cheap drinks and frequently live music. Great choice.
  • The food is beans, maybe tortillas. Come for the music and hope you don't need the bathroom.
  • Crazy good jazz music. Plus the bathroom has an ice trough
  • Jazz, yes but also Funk!
