About Tap & Burger Sloan's Lake

At Tap & Burger, we pride ourselves on great food, an amazing drink selection and a comfortable, inviting atmosphere to share with friends and family. We're conveniently located off of West Colfax, on the corner of Raleigh and Conejos in the Sloan's Lake neightborhood of Denver, just minutes from downtown, Lakewood, Edgewater and Wheat Ridge. Tap & Burger is truly a Colorado-born business. Since opening our first location in LoHi in 2010, we’ve strived to create an experience that encompasses everything we love about Colorado life. We’ve created a comfortable, casual, contemporary atmosphere with an inviting indoor dining area and a spacious patio so our guests can enjoy our sunny weather. Here at the Tap, our friendly, fun staff makes everyone feel completely at home, whether they are dining alone or with a large party, regulars or first-timers.

We’re a community-based business first at the Tap, but we also offer phenomenal food and drink options for our guests. We prepare everything on the menu in-house to ensure that each item is made with the highest standards of quality. We source many of our ingredients from local farmers and merchants so that we can support, build and grow our Colorado community. And we strive to offer a friendly, comfortable atmosphere and hospitality that builds a family of loyal, happy Highland Tap & Burger patrons.
