THIS RESTAURANT IS CLOSED Duffy's Shamrock Restaurant Restaurant Review

: This unpretentious establishment is a time-worn prime example of a downtown neighborhood joint. The 74-foot bar is one of the city's finest and plays host to friendly folks from all walks of Denver life. Blue-collar workers rub elbows with Armani-suited attorneys and string-tied politicos who appreciate genuine ambience and equally real food and drink values. The breakfast and lunch menus of typical Irish-American fare---think bacon and eggs, corned beef and cabbage---are a hit with business types and tourists. The dinner menu---served until the wee hours---draws price-conscious conventioneers, locals and urban workers. We go for the egg-and-meat dishes, the prime-rib special, or the famous Duffaritto. Hospitality workers get two-for-one drink deals from the well-staffed bar, which pours a wealth of spirits and a nice selection of craft beers. Once closed for St. Patrick's Day (the holiday crowds became too much for the house to handle) the Shamrock is now open for Paddy's day visitors looking for a quiet escape from green beer and excessive drinking.
