Made the mistake of visiting the Wynkoop on a weekend (Saturday night). Downstairs portion of the bar was pleasantly full and abuzz. We found the service responsive if not terribly knowledgable. Beers were not unimpressive with a nice English IPA and pleasant ESB on cask. The Scotch and amber were fine and the chili beer was interesting. Hot wings came quick and tastily.
The mistake really showed itself when we migrated up to the "billiards room" billed as "the most elegant in downtown Denver." There we discovered out-on-the-town clad women and plowed guys, white Russians or margaritas in hand. Service was restricted to the obviously drunk tables and the little attention we received was of the "you're drinking beer?!" variety. Not an enjoyable experience.
The spot might be fine on a weekday afternoon but on the weekend it was a recipe for disaster.
