Welcome to The Thunderbird Imperial Lounge – Northwest Denver’s Highland and Sunnyside neighborhoods' go-to destination for neighbors, friends, families, commuters and sports fans.  Our authentic, friendly restaurant & bar celebrates the nostalgia of decades past with a modern day twist. Visit us and enjoy our affordable yet mile-high comfort food, familiar but special "blue collar cocktails”, a full bar including twenty beers on tap, multiple flat screen TVs, and so much more.

Score a seat at our horseshoe bar, decide to lounge in one of our comfortable oversized leather booths, or bask in the sun and fresh air on our large covered patio (don't worry, it's covered and enclosed during rain, snow, and cold times), The Thunderbird Imperial Lounge is the perfect destination for dinner, cocktails, or to watch a game.
