Since 1933, the intersection of four North Denver neighborhoods has been home to Billy’s Inn, a neighborhood fixture for 75 years. Opening one year before the venerable Bonnie Brae Tavern but 40 years after Buckhorn Exchange, Billy’s Inn has a noble history. Billy and Judy Smith opening the bar in a former service station in 1933 and sold it in 1950 to a partnership of Frank Weiner and Lionel Zinn who ran it until 1956. Most recent owner James Von Feldt’s in-laws operated the business until early 1986. Van Feldt ran the watering hole for more than 20 years and sold the business and property to Larimer Associates in 2008. In 2022, the second outpost of Billy’s Inn was opened in Congress Park at the corner of 12th in Madison.
