Denver City Guide: Monica’s Picks

You probably know our Fierce45 coaches best by their go-to, hurt-so-good Fierce45 moves. But, in addition to knowing exactly how to sculpt the best booties in town, they also know some of the best restaurants, hikes and boutiques.

Each month, we’ll be sharing some of our Coach of the Month’s favorite spots around town. This month, we are taking a look at Monica’s picks.

RESTAURANT: Marcella’s (1801 Central St.)

Marcella’s ristorante, pizzaria and wine bar just opened its LoHi location on Central. The food and atmosphere are perfect for grabbing a meal with friends or family, or for a late-night snack run.

HAPPY HOUR OR ROOFTOP: Avanti Food & Beverage (3200 N Pecos St.)

A staple in the LoHi neighborhood since it opened, Avanti has several draft beer, cocktail and wine options, and one of the best city views in town.
