Spring has sprung and so have a lot of new bars and restaurants in Loveland, so we thought that March was an excellent time to introduce you to seven new businesses scattered from east to west.

East End Ale House

422 E. 4th Street

Located across from B Sweet Cupcakes, East End Ale House is keeping the party going on the east side of downtown. Open on March 1, the location was formerly the home of the Boar & Bull. The building now houses two pool tables, rotating beers on tap and a full bar.Here's What's New on Loveland's Restaurant & Bar Scene. East End Ale House 1. Kerr-Schlaefer

The owners hope that the new bar will entice people to explore further east on 4th Street. The East End Ale House has already become a gathering spot for locals who live in the neighborhood. The bar and BBQ joint open daily at 11 a.m. and are closed on Mondays.

Himalayan Curry & Kebob

1518 N. Madison Avenue

The first Himalayan Curry & Kebob is located in Estes Park and is dearly loved. This restaurant has opened a second location in Loveland and locals are excited to have an Indian food option in town.

The restaurant serves up cuisine from Nepal, India and Tibet in a light and bright location just north of the intersection of Hwy 34 and Madison Avenue. There’s also a small bar.

With fabulous $7.99 lunch specials and heat preference options of zero, mild, medium, medium and extra hot, there’s literally something for every taste. Plus, all meals are served with delicious naan bread that’s hot from the oven. They are open daily from 11 a.m. to 9 p.m.

Pinocchio’s Incredible Italian

1455 Rocky Mountain Avenue

The neighborhood has been waiting with bated breath to see what will occupy the large building at Centerra that once was home to Carino’s. In February their wait was over as Pinocchio’s, a small chain from Longmont, moved in after doing a few renovations in the building.

They are open 11 a.m. to 9 p.m. and closed on Mondays.

Smokin’ Classix BBQ

Just east of the tracks on 4th Street is Loveland’s newest barbeque joint and they are bringing Texas-style to Colorado. If you love barbecued meat, this is the place to go.

White Groves Barber & Taproom

341 E. 4th Street

It’s a barbershop, it’s a bar, it’s both! This is a first for Loveland, and like an eighties mullet, it’s business in the front and a party in the back. 

The name, White Groves, is the last name of the two ladies who started this business. In the front part of the building, there’s a barbershop where haircuts come with a free beer. In the back of the building, there is a bar with a pool table and a sunny patio.

Wicked Tequila Room

123 E. 4th Street

Tucked into an alley downtown, Wicked opened in late 2018. This creative bar, located across the alley from Cactus Grill serves up an array of tequila with daily tequila flight specials. This is the place to go for tequila lovers, however, if you’d prefer a margarita or a beer, they’ve got that too.

Open every day of the week at 4 p.m. and featuring a scorpion shot for the very brave, Wicked has become the place to put on a downtown outing itinerary.

5030 Local

1480 Cascade Avenue

Located in west Loveland, in the La Quinta parking lot, 5030 Local is a beer and pizza joint on two levels. Berthoud Brewing serves up the beers and Peel Handcrafted Pizza serves up the pizza.

The sunlit upstairs is more like a restaurant with a big outdoor patio. Downstairs is where the open kitchen is located. The space is dominated by a large bar featuring taps from Berthoud Brewing and other local craft beers. Downstairs also serves as a music venue and includes a stage. A stack of wood sits in the corner ready to keep the pizza ovens hot.

Please let us know if we’ve overlooked a new restaurant or bar. With so much growth in this area over the last 12 months, it’s hard to keep up.
