Editor's note: If you're looking for places where you can watch the series finale across Colorado, we have an updated list here.
DENVER – The army of the dead is on the march and the Great War is finally here.
After a long 20-month hiatus, “Game of Thrones” returns to HBO to bring us battles, dragons, (hopefully more Kinvara scenes) and the much-anticipated Clegane Bowl we've been waiting for the past, I don't know, 67 episodes?
Unfortunately, not everyone will have access to an HBO subscription – but luckily for you, these spots across the state will have watch parties so you can cheer, cry, laugh and wonder why you’re putting yourself through the pain of witnessing your favorite characters die on television – all in the camaraderie of fellow "Game of Thrones" fans.
1. Stoney’s Bar & Grill
1111 Lincoln St. – Denver
Stoney’s has been having Game of Thrones watch parties since heaven-knows-when and they’ll revive the annual tradition one last time starting Sunday, growing strong until the end of the series on May 19.
There will be games, trivia, and live music performed by Daenerys and the Targaryens. Did we mention there will also be a special menu plus dragon and “blood” shots?
The band starts playing at 6 p.m.
2. Your Mom’s House

They will be livestreaming the final season of Game of Thrones “until the Song of Ice and Fire is over!!” You can expect to watch the last season of the hit fantasy show on a large screen projector and other screens scattered inside the venue and hear all the drama, action (not to mention, the violence) with the help of a top-notch audio system.
The free event is 21 and over and starts at 7 p.m.
3. Pride and Swagger
450 E. 17th Ave. – Denver
Betty Swallows will gather all the queendom’s bannermen as Pride & Swagger returns to Westeros for the final season of Game of Thrones. There will be drink specials and bar-style eats, plus a drag show before the main event.

6. Circus Collective
4459 Jason St. Unit 3 – Denver
The folks over at Circus Collective, located inside Denver Beer Co., are hosting a Game of Thrones watch party in their spacious training facility. They only ask that you bring a snack for the watch party.
We’re still not sure if they’ll be doing it every weekend (or if they’ll have contortionists the likes of which were only seen at Little Finger’s brothel) but if you want to go for the premiere, make sure to be there on Sunday starting at 9 p.m.
The event is free and open to the public.
