The Curtis Club
Need another reason besides the Feisty 75 to get out to The Curtis Club? I have several.
Formerly Curtis Street Tavern, The Curtis Club reopened on November 1st with a new look and feel that I could only describe as rustic-chic. Reclaimed and antique seating with polished wood, wagon wheel accents, and the wallpaper—which appears to be an elegant, classic pattern at first glance—with intricately linked deer and antlers brings the mountain feel into city savvy. Oh, and did I mention their antique jukebox?
Their focus is on local ingredients and sustainability in their food menu and classic cocktails with a modern twist in their beverage selection. Its a perfect fit for the Colorado scene. We went for Happy Hour, which had it’s own limited small plate and appetizer menu, perfect for a mid-day snack (though slightly disappointed I didn’t get the chance to dig into their Bison Bolognese). I dug into an Edna’s Beef Slider, the Saffron Risotto Croquettes, and the Sweet Bread Corndogs. The slider was huge and juicy with the perfect amount of toppings, the croquettes were gooey and cheesy, and the corndogs—described to me as “nuggets of happiness—lived up perfectly to their description. These appetizers left me wanting to delve into everything on their menu.
Voted by Westword as one of Denver’s 10 best new bars of 2013 and 25 most promising new restaurants of 2013, The Curtis Club is a must try. Book a table on OpenTable or book a “Table of Never-Ending Happiness”—a handcrafted tasting for six or more people tailored to you.
