Unique Bars in Denver: Forget Me Not

Friend…IYKYK and if ya don’t know, I am here to put you on to one of my favorite bars: Forget Me Not. It’s small but mighty making it one of the more unique bars in Denver 🥂 Let’s talk about it!

Lounge Location

Forget Me Not is nuzzled in Cherry Creek North, which is across the street from the Cherry Creek Mall. Upon entering, you walk through a little white picket fence to the patio which is sprinkled with fire pits and cozy outdoor seating. It’s the perfect area to grab drinks with the girls whether it’s warm or chilly out!

Inside of Forget Me Not you are met head on with a GORGEOUS bar surrounded by purple leather bar stools. On either side of the bar you can enjoy your drink in the velvety booth filled with colorful pillows – I just love a velvet seat, I don’t know what it is but it just makes me feel expensive and cute 😂

Need to Knows

This place is considered one of the more unique bars in Denver for a reason 👀 here are some things you should pay attention to while planning your visit!

  1. This place is POPPIN* Thursday – Sunday, so make a reservation as soon as possible. If you have a party bigger than 4, I advise making your reservation at least 2 weeks in advance.
  2. Food is available – my favorite item is the Chicago Hot Dog (because I love hot dogs and they don’t mess around), there are also small bites** like charcuterie boards, Trout Bruschetta, Caviar, and Wagyu Steak Tartare on the menu 🤌🏾🤌🏾🤌🏾
  3. Lounge Hours are 3pm – 2am Daily
  4. There is a DJ almost every weekend – especially in the Summer so come ready to dance with strangers 💃🏾🪩

* If you’re ready to party, dance with the DJ and can handle getting bumped into – you’ll be fine…otherwise, maybe go next door to Cretan’s where the vibe is much more chill!

**The food is seriously so good, which is part of what makes it one of the more unique bars in Denver.

My Recommendations

Here’s what I like to order:

  • My favorite drink recently is the Green Machine – which is actually a mocktail – with Gin added! You can also add Vodka but GIRL this drink tastes like if a healthy green drink and an apple jolly rancher had a baby – 🤌🏾🤌🏾🤌🏾
  • Mezcal Mamas! If you’re in the mood to get absolutely blasted order the Coquette (it’s no longer on the menu but they can still make a drink similar to it). Two of those and you’ll be asleep so definitely take your time with this one haha
  • Tequila friends – you’re my people, first of all, the drink you will love is called La Piña. It’s so refreshing and fruity, I promise you’ll love it!
  • Vodka Gals – 82 Moons is yummy, I’m not a big vodka girly so I only ordered this once, but again, this is yet another beautiful and fruity drink on the menu!

The Overall Vibe

Daytime/During the Week

If you want to experience a chill and cute moment with your mom or a couple of friends, I highly recommend going during the day, before 5pm. Or just go somewhere that’s actually chill like El Jefe (they have a great happy hour btw).

Nighttime/Weekends

Forget Me Not is always full of people who are having a great time. You’ll likely see or meet one of the owners as they frequently make appearances and are always a good time.

I’d be lying if I said this place doesn’t get WILD from time to time 😅. The drinks are strong, the music is always on point and the Cherry Creekers will occasionally have one too many drinks and security will escort them out lol

*shout out to the security team, they’re also super nice and keep everyone in check*

On the weekends, not only is there a line out the door, but the place is also very small so if you want to get in you need to get there by 9:00pm/9:30pm if you don’t already have a reservation.

You should also know that despite everyone being packed in there like sardines, they will NOT remove the bar stools. SO, if you want to snag a bar seat you need to wait behind the person sitting there and the ~moment~ they get up you quite literally need to JUMP on it before somebody else eyeing the same seat body checks you to get in 😅

The Crowd

The age group of the typical population ranges from 27 – 60ish… remember this is Cherry Creek where the average drink is $16. This is definitely not a spot for young 20 somethings who still think that it’s fun to go out in LoDo on a Saturday night* 🥴

That being said…the sugar daddies are very much present and ready to party ngl. Don’t freak out though, it’s really not a bad thing and I have never had a bad experience – I will let aaallll the sugar daddies buy me a drink all night long because why not (lol) but that’s up to you girl 💅🏾💅🏾

All of the bartenders are cool , so if you say to them, “Hey, this man offered to buy me a drink” they will smile and hand YOU the drink.

Safety first friends 😉

*No shade on the young 20 somethings, but there’s simply a difference in overall vibe between the two areas and, personally, I would not willingly go bar hopping downtown post age 24…but that’s just me 🤷🏾‍♀️

Let’s Hang Out!

You can catch me at Forget Me Not a few times a month, I always post a pic from the bathroom because the wallpaper is gorgeous and the mirror light is perfect for selfies haha

I hope you enjoy this spot as much as I do, let me know if you plan to go or if you happen to see me come say hi 👋🏾
