Denver's Dairy Block
Lately this has been my go-to spot for an excuse to get downtown! Whether it's for a girls night, date night, or just a weekend. It's literally a block in downtown Denver that is being converted into the Dairy Block. What was once an alley between two streets has become a walkway through the middle of this space. It's not even 100% finished!
An all local dine in or take out of restaurants and bars offering variations for all foodie lovers run by Colorado chef Frank Bonanno. Sunday - Saturday 11am-9pm
When you add Southwest American and Baja Mexican flavor it comes in fry bread tacos, smokey margaritas, varieties of guacamole and salsa and shrimp ceviche. Every Wednesday Free Nacho Bar, with the purchase of an alcoholic beverage from 3-6pm. Enjoy an Agua Fresca while relaxing on the outdoor patio.
A beautifully designed 7 story hotel at the corner of Dairy Block. Offering complimentary valet parking and courtesy car transportation. If you live in the area and are interested in just a date night, this is available with two drinks and a charcuterie board in Polka Lola Social Club.
Intimate cocktail bar with a flair of soda fountain culture. Enjoy the inside seating with marble high tops or the patio with walk up bar. Tuesday - Thursday 4- 12pm Friday & Saturday 4-2am
Coffee lounge for caffeine lovers & making people happy every Sunday - Saturday 6am-6pm
COMING SOON: Run For The Roses
Underground, intimate cocktail lounge. Thursday- Sunday 5pm-2am
As more retailers and spaces are announcing their openings this block will become a MUST VISIT spot in Denver. With short walking distance to Rockies stadium, Union Station, 16th Street mall, and you're in the heart of downtown. It won't take long before you fall in love too.
You're sure to see various art works all through the Dairy Block. From the giant milk jug sculpture, interactive installations in the alley, the plaques on the alley ground, and so much more. 31 artists and over 700 art pieces, art is truly the make of the Dairy Block. Each piece is unique and beautiful and they all make this place an incredible place to be.
I will share a follow up post as the block finishes and will share a day at the Dairy Block!!
