Posted on January 02 2017

Need a few ideas for a classy night on the town?  Check it out.  Don't have time to agonize over the details?  Our planners are on standby to take care of it for you . . . even last minute.


1. Eat from a Meticulous Mediterranean Food Table at Rioja

Inspired by modern, creative, delicious Mediterranean dishes, plus local and seasonal ingredients; Rioja is still one of Denver's most highly regarded reputable restaurants with an award-winning Chef. They have a dazzling wine cellar and a large cocktail selection. The bread and pork belly is certainly delectable, but the rest of the menu is diverse and equally as impressive. Feast in a multi-course meal with wine pairings and go all out while sitting inside or outside on their comfy patio to people watch along Larimer Square!

2. Sip Classy Drinks in a Luxurious, High End Bar at Cooper Lounge

An upscale lounge that sits you right over Union Station with spectacular views of the beaming lights of LoDo. The décor is old Hollywood vintage inspired, the staff is very attentive and the drinks are top quality. The food is also highly regarded and presented by Chef Lon Symensma; who provides tasty plates like Colorado wagyu steak tartare (tuffled yolk with sriracha dressing), bershire pork terrine (dijon, cornichons and bacon), and the cheese cart du jour (assorted accoutrements, grateful bread), plus a few more. Sip with elegance and top drinks plus perfect plates.


3. Treat Yourselves to Mouth-Watering New American at Hearth and Dram

New to the LoDo scene and located in the Hotel Indigo.  Their whiskey selection boasts over 350 kinds with food to match.  You can't go wrong with anything on the menu.  


4. Taste Hand Crafted Cocktails in a Prohibition Era Style Bar at Green Russell

This chef driven, old-time feel bar is unique in not only its ambiance, but the bartenders are officially referred to as "mixologists" by everyone and die-hard fans alike. They also offer theme nights like "Tiki Party" with a matching menu displaying interesting corresponding foods. With a stunning cocktail den and plush chairs, this Larimer Square gem is a fantastic way to savor good taste.


5. Try Global Fare and Farm Fresh Entrees at Mercantile Dining and Provision

Not only does this casual yet elegant and innovative restaurant offer traditional American fare but you can diversely find detail oriented global fare entrees with top quality ingredients as well. The modern décor is aesthetically pleasing and alluring. Endure a dinner and show experience by reserving the Chef's table, with front row seats to the beautiful open kitchen and receive complimentary amuse-bouche and wine from the head chef!




All of the above and more can be expeditiously arranged and reserved officially for you by Denver Date Nite.
