Cocktail Bar

“I highly recommend the Green Russell prohibition style bar -expensive drinks, but a neat underground vibe, which I guess is what you are paying for. They have "mixologists" that can make you custom drinks by answering a few questions.”

Cuban Restaurant

“CUBA CUBA Cafe & Bar is a unique Caribbean restaurant. With our newly designed patio we are able to bring you even more of that tropical feel year round. With Salsa music jamming in the bar and the largest selection of exotic rums in Denver, it is truly a rare spot in Colorado. We are proud to sit comfortable in our two historic homes with its very own palm tree in the front lawn which has become the definition of "Cuba" to many throughout Colorado and those just passing through. With our traditional & authentic cuisine and the mojito happy hour (Monday - Thursday 5-6:15pm) we continue to bring a little bit of our culture to you.”
