Scream Agency’s Guide to Eating + Drinking Summer 2016


Milkbox Ice Creamery – If the temperature outside is hitting over 85 degrees, we require a scoop of Little Man to cool down. It’s the perfect afternoon pick-me-up, and conveniently located two blocks from our office.

Steuben’s Arvada – All the charm of the Uptown standard, without the wait.

Illegal Pete’s on Colfax – Where it feels Pete’s always belonged. Also, queso.

Work & Class – Let’s be honest, it doesn’t matter the season – you can always find our Director of PR sipping on a whiskey clove ginger and ordering 1/2 the menu at this shipping container hotspot. Try to score a spot on the covered patio this time of year, like driving in your car with the windows down but the AC on. You know what we’re talking about.

Avanti F&B – Take in the views on the rooftop and grab a bowl from MiJo (or one of the other six restaurant offerings).

Telegraph – Edison bulb patio lights illuminate this intimate patio setting with a warm and inviting glow. Community tables make of reclaimed wood and iron line the paved stoned patio while young couple and hipsters alike sip on their seasonal cocktails. The wait staff smiles as they deliver small plates for the table to share. A great place to meet up with friends or the perfect setting for an intimate dinner for two. Oysters on the half shell and handmade libations provide the perfect preface to a summer weekend. (Our Art Director is obviously a fan).

Lala’s Wine Bar – Don’t miss the arugula mascarpone dip with flatbread. And a glass of rosé because ’tis the season.

Humboldt – A favorite from the ambience perspective and offerings of a lighter meals for those hotter days.

The Crafty Fox – We love our rooftops in Colorado and The Crafty Fox has one of the best with views of the city. Grab a cold one before catching a Rockies game. Only tough part is picking  from one of the 60 (!!!!!) taps.

Mellow Mushroom – With three locations including Downtown, Park Meadows and The Streets at SouthGlenn, there’s no excuse to not waste a few hours, soaking in the sunshine, on one of Mellow’s patios this summer. Don’t miss the happy hour from 4-6p feature $4 Colorado drafts. We also love the bruschetta!
