What we're about

Steeler Nation of North Denver is Denver's largest and most active Steeler fan club! Founded in 2015, we have grown quickly. In addition to this meet-up site, we also maintain a mailing list of about 450 fans in the Denver area. WE ARE NOT A PLACE TO SOLICIT FOR YOUR BUSINESS PLEASE!

We host a draft day party in April, then meet weekly during the season through (hopefully) February. Every time that the Steelers play, an average of 100-180 (and more during playoffs) diehard fans descend upon Bender's Bar and Grill (our home) in Westminster, CO to catch the game. Benders (complete with our group photo) is now listed at a "Hangout" on Steeler Nation Unite. Benders is excited to be THE "Steelers Bar" in Denver.

For the playoffs of the 2017-18 season, we hosted 240 fans! News on our gatherings are spread by email, Evite, Meet-Up and word of mouth. Our Leadership Team is committed to building the group even bigger and making it a great experience for everyone!

So, are you ready to be a part of Steeler Nation of North Denver? Grab your jersey, good luck charms and your Terrible Towel and we'll see you at Bender's!


Benders is located in Westminster (next to the Westin) at the Ice Centre. They are the top sports bar on the Boulder Turnpike, with awards to prove it. Bender's won a 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 has owned Bender’s for 5+ years. Jim’s former life was as a Denver Post sports columnist for 27 years and talk-show host on ESPN radio and The Fan for 8 yrs. Since he’s a sports guy, Jim knows what fans like in a sports bar. He’s been to Steelers training camp several times. Two of the staff at Bender’s are Steelers fans!

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 wings, nachos, burgers, salads and pizza. There are 16 beers on tap, including several Colorado microbrews. The game room features two pool tables, various video games and Air Hockey.

There's lots of room to roam, with seating for 200-plus inside and 80 on the dog-friendly patio overlooking the Promenade Lake.

Steelers vs Bungles - NEED YOUR RSVP (yes or no)


Steelers will redeem themselves against the Bungles this week! Steeler Nation North Denver and Benders welcomes you to another exciting game this week. The game IS NOT on national TV, so you'll want to be with SNND at Benders to see the Steelers get a big win.

EVERYONE--PLEASE RSVP (YES or NO) as soon as possible. We are expecting a crowd, and Bender's wants to plan seating and servers to accommodate the group. You can RSVP to this Meetup, or to your Evite sent to your email address that you provided.

Bender's has made some exciting new changes:

o Removed pool tables, added seating and additional 70" TVs to that area.
o Installed a covered roof over the entire dog-friendly patio. Enjoy the game outside and see the 3 55" TVs without glare. Seating capacity is 75 guests.
o Sound is always on the Steeler game only--both inside and out.
o Sports betting available at your table! Sign up for an account and receive a free draft beer.

Available daily specials will be announced.
