Where are good places to eat before a Rockies game?
Some of Colorado’s best dining options are within a few miles of Coors Field. Root Down, Linger, and Fuel Café are three great American food restaurants that will not disappoint. If you enjoy amazing French food, try Z Cuisine Bistrot, or Bistro Vendrome. Three fun sports bars with awesome food and drink menus are Highland Tap and Burger, Armoury, and Cherry Cricket. If you are looking for a more upscale dining experience, check out Rioja, CY Steak House, or The Squeaky Bean. There are quite a few good barbeque joints in the area. Boney’s Smokehouse, Tom’s Home Cookin’, and Bourbon Grill are three of the best. Other great places in the area are Osteria Marco, Trillium, and Elway’s.
Where is the best place to park at Coors Field?
The majority of parking at Coors Field is located just north of the stadium. Parking Lot A runs from the north edge of Coors Field all the way past Broadway in the single largest, and most convenient parking location near the stadium. There are a few smaller parking lots to the south of Coors Field. The West Lot is directly south of the stadium in between 19th and 20th streets. A little farther away to the southwest of Coors is parking Lot 1 which is at 20th and Chestnut. If you don’t mind a little walk, parking Lot 2 is farther southwest of the stadium at 16th and Wewatta, and is usually a little bit cheaper.
Does my child need a ticket to attend the game?
Children 2 years old and younger are allowed to enter Coors Field without a ticket, but must sit on a parent’s lap for the duration of the game. It is best practice to bring proof of your child’s age with you to avoid any last minute hassles at the gate.
