Glenwood Caverns: Your Go-To Summer Happy Hour Spot

Celebrate the sounds of summer with happy hour mountaintop entertainment nearly every day of the week at Glenwood Caverns Adventure Park.

What’s better than summertime dining al fresco? Eating and drinking outdoors while listening to great tunes at Glenwood Caverns Adventure Park. The mountaintop theme park channels a laid-back summer vibe with everyday happy hour events like Pickin’ in the Plaza, Friday Afternoon Club and Music on the Mountain that showcase talented artists.

Happy Hour Munchies & More

While you’re enjoying the music scene in the plaza, be sure to check out the food and drink choices from the Lookout Grille and the Smoke House. Fill up at the Lookout Grille with burgers, loaded nachos, salads, pizza and chicken tenders for the kids. At the Smoke House, pulled pork sandwiches reign supreme, but there are other options as well including smoked sausages, burgers and more.

Happy hour drink specials run the gamut. Check in with wait staff and bartenders for the latest, greatest deals. Both mountaintop restaurants feature on-tap beer including Glenwood Caverns IPA which is brewed in Glenwood Springs, as well as a variety of bottled beer options. Adult Icees are a fun summer treat too, the refreshing frozen cocktail is made with your choice of rum, vodka or tequila.
