    The redesign and lots of fresh construction created a two-level, multi-roomed restaurant with two excellent decks -- one with a rooftop fire pit, and both with absolutely stunning views of downtown. Read more

    Everything we had was amazing. Flatbread for an appetizer; Southwest, basil & bleu, and vegetarian burgers for entrees. Perfect portions, amazing flavour. A little pricey, but definitely worth it.

    He might be a sommelier by training, but the beverage director Kevin Burke knows his beer. He chooses the rotating tap list, which features beers that you won't find at other Denver bars.

    Brianne was awesome! Must try the bison pb&j burger as well as the cholula jalapeno cream cheese bison burger! You won't be sorry. Mouth watering, lean and delicious!

    The rooftop is where you want to be sitting around sunset. They even have space heaters and fire pits so you don't get cold.

    No reservations but every time we're back in Denver we set up a hangout here w/ at least 10 people. Wait staff is awesome & friendly - no issues splitting checks or setting up tabs. You guys ROCK!

    You've got to try the artichoke & spinach dip. The jalapeños are a nice touch. In fact it's one of the best dips I've ever had.

    Huge draft beer list sorted by type (hoppy, malty, seasonal, etc.) The 10oz pours are perfect for trying a few different ones.

    The burgers are solid (try the pbj burger- it works). Also the pita salad is good. The tap selection is good, but pricing can be wonky.
