Denver - great food, young/hip scene, that wont break the bank

Hello Mountain State Chowhounders!

I'll be in Denver from NY this April on a sensitive trip. My best friend (born in Denver) is suffering through a terrible family health crisis for the last year so I am coming into town and staying with her for some moral support and hopefully one night of some serious fun/release for her.

I am treating her to a night in a hotel, dinner and hopefully a great cocktail or dancing scene. Money is a bit tight tho but we both appreciate all ranges of cuisine/nightlife (except for big dance clubs/velvet rope type places). We are staying in the newly renovated Sheraton Downtown.

Dinner-wise I'm looking for a hip spot for two thirty year old women -- but nothing too exclusive or obnoxious. Bottom line most important factor is excellent food. Pluses would add great cocktails and upbeat/chic ambiance. We eat all types of cuisine, and love ethnic/interesting eats -- so anything from standard to eclectic goes.

Entrees under $20 would be ideal - as would a BYO if there's a decent Denver byo restaurant scene. (We're lacking in Manhattan, sadly). Also would love any bar suggestions.

I dont know Denver so I am unfamiliar with neighborhoods and how to get around. Do we want to be in lodo? I'm assuming taxis from the hotel will be easy enough.
My friend knows Denver well but just moved back there so probably hasn't been to places that are newer in the past five years.

VERY much appreciate any suggestions!!
