Dogs on Deck


This is Jackson, who visited our patio! *Please note the Packers bandana.

At Bender’s, we like having good times, preferably with our four-legged friends by our sides. There’s no better place to stop during a dog walk than Bender’s, home of the dog-friendliest patio in Westminster. We’ll not only serve you our award-winning food and a cold brew or two, we’ll have water and treats waiting for your furry friend. We’ve hosted so many doggies on our patio, we’ve come to know them to name. And they come in all shapes and sizes. Brutus the British Mastiff is 270 pounds of cuddly. No really, we’re not making this up. Brutus was the largest participant at the Mastiff show at the Westin and his owners decided to stop by Bender’s to chill out and introduce him to everyone. Then there’s Jackson, whose two loves in life are treats at Bender’s and, judging from the bandana he wears, the Green Bay Packers. Oh, and let’s not
forget Montezuma, the Bernese Mountain dog who shows up on Bender’s patio the moment the weather turns warm. Montezuma set the unofficial Bender’s treats record one Saturday by inhaling almost half a bag of goodies. The bottom line? We love doggies at Bender’s. If you’re looking for the best place to walk your pooch, take a stroll through City Park, located on the other side of the Westin, then stop by Bender’s for some quality people time on our patio. And if it’s a hint of fall or spring in the air, you can warm your feet next to our signature fire pit. Oh, one last thing. After having a great time with your furry friend on our patio, tell your friends about us. The more dogs the merrier at Bender’s!

Sports On TV

No other sports bar in the area — maybe in the entire metro area, for that matter — has as many premium sports-viewing packages as we do. NFL Sunday Ticket? Of course we have that. It’s Denver, so you have to have the Sunday Ticket. But that’s just the top of the food chain of our packages. We also offer MLB Extra Innings, giving our customers access to every game, every inning, all season long. NHL Center Ice? Good luck finding another bar in the area with that package. At Bender’s, NHL fans can see their favorite teams all year long without missing a moment of the action. We also have NBA TV for the hoops junkies in the crowd. College sports? Our owner, Jim Armstrong, is a University of Wisconsin grad and a college football nut so, of course, we have the Big Ten Network. And for CU fans, we offer the Pac 12 Network. Trust us, precious few bars on the Front Range carry the Pac 12, but Bender’s is happy to provide it for our customers.








Wait, what? You thought Bender’s was just another sports bar with good food? Not even close. Stop by today and you’ll taste why we were chosen as the official caterers for the Westminster Butterfly Pavilion and the press box at Folsom Field on the CU campus. Our catering options go well beyond our regular menu, with choices including prime rib, Cajun fish, breakfast and barbecue. Basically, our catering motto is this: If you want it, we’ll make it, whether it’s for an intimate gathering or a major corporate event. We routinely cook for 325 media members in the CU press box and upward of 200 people for Butterfly Pavilion events. So whether you want to join us in-house, where we can host over 100 in our semi-private party room, or whether you want us to bring the feast to you, call Cathy Hooper, our long-time GM, and she’ll customize a menu for your group. She can be reached at (303 974-5215 or )

About Us

Bender’s at the Ice Centre is, simply put, the top sports bar on the Boulder Turnpike, with awards to prove it. Bender’s won a 2012 Best of Broomfield as the No. 1 sports bar in the area, and was one of only a handful of suburban venues cited by Channel 7’s A List as a Top 10 sports bar in the metro area. Owner Jim Armstrong, a former Denver Post sports columnist and talk-show host on ESPN radio and The Fan, knows what fans want in a top-shelf sports bar.

Bender’s has 28 HD big screens, including a signature 70-incher and seven 50-inchers above the bar, plus eight tables that overlook the Green rink in the Ice Centre. And the food is unbeatable, from the best wings in Westy to nachos, burgers, salads and pizza. There are 16 beers on tap, including several Colorado microbrews, with prices starting under three dollars. The games room features two pool tables, various video games and, of course, Air Hockey. No wonder local residents routinely pack the place on weekends. And no, it isn’t a coincidence that the Coloradans for Nebraska chose Bender’s as one of the group’s official watch sites in the metro area.

Bender’s also operates Bender’s at the Ballpark at nearby Christopher Fields and hosts parties and catering events from intimate gatherings to major corporate outings. There’s lots of room to roam, with seating for 200-plus inside and 80 on our dog-friendly patio overlooking the Promenade Lake. Stop by the patio during a walk through the Promenade or nearby City Park and one of our staffers will take great care of you and spoil your four-legged friends with water and treats. Add it all up and there’s no better place than Bender’s to watch a game, hang with friends or just grab a cold brewski on a hot summer day.

Bender’s Sports Bar & Grill wants to hear from you! Please feel free to contact us with any questions, comments or feedback you may have. Call Jim or Bender’s long-time general manager, Cathy Hooper today at 303-974-5215 to reserve a table or email for general request or inquiries.
