If you want to get inside early, check out the Interactive Area behind Gate A which includes a radar gun, video batting cages and a interactive radio booth. There’s a Children’s Playground near Section 14, with a kids’ food stand and merchandise shop nearby.
Unique to the ballpark: Mile High Seats. All throughout the Upper deck there is a row of seats that is painted Purple, indicating that you are officially 5,280 feet, or One Mile, above sea level. The Rockpile Seats in Center Field are some of the cheapest in baseball at only $4.
Food and Drink:
There are a couple of sit down restaurants you can check out: The Mountain Ranch Club and Grill, accessed through Elevators behind sections 111 and 114 has plenty of appetizers, burgers, sandwiches, steaks and ribs ($10-$25). Call three days in advance to make a reservation. Garage style Glass Wall opens for the fresh air on nice days. Also, The Blue Moon Brewing Co. at the Sandlot on the Main Concourse near section 112. A Brewery inside of a Ballpark is something that you have to see, and taste, for yourself. Blue Moon beer was first made in this Onsite Brewery back in 1995.
Rocky Dogs at any Grille Works stand are usually a good choice. Tornadough near section 332 has a pretzel with butter and parmesan that is super tasty. Feeling adventurous and in the mood for something “exotic”? Rocky Mountain Oysters near Section 144. New to the ballpark is Wazee Market (Sec 137) which we definitely recommend trying out. It's an Italian-style marché with hot Sandwiches like a Spicy Italian Sausage Sandwich and Formaggio Di Pollo- a 3 Cheese Chicken Parmesan Sandwcih. They also feature a large Wood Stone Deck pizza oven.
As for drinks, there are daquiri and margarita stands throughout and microbrews from the Sandlot Brewery are a nice step away from the traditional ballpark domestics. If you’re seated in the Left Field Pavilion, make sure to order a Beer from Captain Earthman himself. We hear he even gives out his cell phone number so you can call him during the game for a personal refill.

The Ballpark and Neighborgood:
Coors Field is a newer stadium with a nice retro look and feel. Home of some great scenery with the Rocky Mountains in the background, with some picturesque sunsets too. Located in the Lower Downtown (or LoDo) neighborhood of Denver, it's easily accessible by I-25 and near many places to go before or after a game.
There are several good bars and restaurants in the area, particularly a few local breweries like Great Divide, Wynkoop Brewing, and Denver Chophouse & Brewery.16th Street Mall has a lot of variety, and it tends to be fairly touristy. If you're looking to venture away from that sort of thing, there are definitely other places nearby. Just note that anything near 16th Street will fall under the Tourist category, but that definitely doesn't mean some of those spots aren't good. Check our "Before & After the Game" map for more info on these and other great establishments.
There are 3,800 on site spaces at Coors Field. Day of game parking is available at Lot B and will cost you $13. Both lot A and B are accessible at 27th and Blake Street with an additional entrance at 22nd/Park Ave and Wazee for Lot A. The two on-site lots are connected, stretching from 33rd st to Coors Field Gate A at 22nd Street and are open 2 ½ hours before game time. Be ready to wait in a long line to get out after the game if you park right at the ballpark.
There are also a number of different privatley owned lots to choose from in the area. Try the parking garage on the south corner of 18th and Market as it is usually around $5 and only minutes from Coors Field. There's also a lot on 21st and Arapahoe that is $7 and a 5-7 minute walk away from the park. Most lots range anywhere from $5-$10 on typical game days with some prices jumping for bigger games.
Along the 16th Street Mall you'll find quite a few lots and you can then hop on the free MallRide shuttle. A number of our recommended pre or post game bars and restaurants are along the way. For more info on that shuttle you can visit HERE.
As for street parking, you have to be careful here. Street parking around the stadium is one or two hour meters Monday-Saturday 8am-10pm and with a 2 hour maximum and absolutely no street parking anywhere from 2am-6am. The authorities are in full force on Game Days and hand out lots of citations. A wonderful bonus is that ALL street parking in Downtown is free on Sundays and Holidays, but be sure to snag a spot early as they tend to fill up fast.
If you travel via bicycle, Coors Field lives up to the hype of Denver being billed as one of the bike friendliest cities in the country with bike parking available near Gates A, B and E.
RTD (Regional Transportation District) - Light Rail: Our preferred way to the game if possible. Park in one of the Park and Ride lots outside the city and take the train into downtown, and you can either walk or explore downtown and then take the free shuttle that runs from one end of 16th Street Mall to the other.
If you're coming from the South, park at a Park and Ride Station (like Highway I-25 and Broadway station) and catch any of the C,D,E,F, or H trains that all head into Denver. Trains C and E end at Union Station just blocks from the field. Not to worry, if you take the D,F or H trains you can get off at 16th/Stout stop and then catch the free MallRide Bus that will take you just blocks from Coors Field.
Note: The C and F lines do not operate regularly on the Weekends, but there is a Special C Line on Game Days.
If you take the bus (which we recommend if you aren’t near the light rail) than all buses drop off and pick up customers outside of Gate B on the corner of 22nd and Blake street in the RTD bus parking lot.
