BEST BAR AND BEST MARGARITA WICKED TEQUILA ROOM
123 E. 4th St., Loveland, (970) 278-5474, wickedtequilaroom.com
Locally-owned and Loveland’s first tequila-exclusive bar has continued to innovate. With limited operation during the pandemic years they made sure Loveland wouldn’t be missing their favorite cocktails by making them available for online ordering and to-go friendly in the form of canned cocktails or pouches—an option they continue to offer.
If you’re in the mood for a night out though, give Margarita Alley a go. Located between Wicked Tequila Room and Cactus Grille, it’s a small step into a cantina-style patio, but it feels a world away. Perfect for whiling away a balmy evening. Creative and fun events—complete with drink specials— also give guests a party vibe to look forward to, without all the tedious planning.
The atmosphere alone is worth visiting for, but, let’s be honest; you’re there for the margs. If you’ve never been to Wicked Tequila Room, you might assume that a margarita is a margarita is a margarita... but you would be wrong. Not only do they have their own handcrafted versions, but they invite you to “Make your own” which leads to as many margs as there are individuals who drink them.
