“A modern interpretation of the classic Denver steakhouse ... Casual ambiance and exceptional food. Come take a look at Mike Shanahan’s Lombardi trophies from his Super Bowl victories. Go ahead and take your picture with them while you wait to be seated. The bar features high-end spirits, and of course, you can catch the score of the game on plasma TVs. For frigid winter evenings, grab a table by the fireplace. During warmer months, enjoy the outdoor patio and sip a summer draught beer. Between the months of June and August, you'll enjoy outdoor music every Friday night.”

Brewery

“Great brewery located on the edge of Denver proper. In my opinion they have the best IPA in the city, which has also won Gold at GABF in their first year open. Their beers are stronger than your normal Bud as they emphasize bold flavors in all their beers. ”
