Perhaps because everybody gets up with the sun to hit the slopes and trails, Denver has never been much of a haven for night owls. The pandemic and subsequent labor shortage only further curtailed hours at many establishments, which typically close up shop at 9 or 10 p.m. The following 20 places, however, keep their kitchens open until 11 p.m. or later at least three nights a week to serve up everything from burgers and pizza to shish kabobs and dumplings.
