Every Restaurant and Bar Opening in Denver This Week, Including Four New Coffee Shops
Jeff Bebout (aka Neon Dad) recently decided to close Glass Arrow Coffee at the old Brandin’ Iron Motor Lodge on Colfax, citing issues with violence in the area and damage caused by two incidents over Christmas weekend. But this week, he and business partner Nick Lowary debuted Subjective Cafe in Westminster — a project that was originally slated to open last August.
Also new are Summer Moon Coffee in Thornton and a second Tonantzin Casa de Café inside the Main Boulder Public Library. On South Broadway, LaTinto Café opened in the former home of La Chiva (which moved across the street); it’s also owned by Jorge Aguirre. Like La Chiva, it specializes in Colombian fare — and coffee, of course — and serves up options such as empanadas, tamals, changua (milk and egg soup) and huevos pericos (scrambled eggs made with tomatoes and scallions).
Tony Pasquini’s Tony P’s Bar and Pizzeria has been a LoHi staple since 2007, but it’s now moved two blocks south to a smaller location. Its former home is set to become a Japanese eatery from Juan Padro’s Culinary Creative restaurant group.
Little Bodega has opened in Five Points, giving the neighborhood that’s home to Rosenberg’s Bagels, Famous Original J’s, Lou’s Italian Specialties and Duke’s Good Sandwiches another taste of the East Coast. It’s a neighborhood shop that’s also serving sandwiches. Check out our previous coverage to learn more about owner Natasha Butler.
Westminster has a new option for pizza: Quinto Neighborhood Pizzeria & Taphouse. “As parents to three young boys ourselves, it was important to us that our restaurant be both child friendly, yet elevated. Our patio features twinkle lights, lounge furniture, a fireplace and lawn games, and our 22 self-serving taps are perfect for date night and family time alike,” says owner Laetitia Doets.
The bar scene is busy, too. The former Sip | Ultra Lounge located in the Spire building on the corner of 14th and Champa streets has reopened as Fortissimo Dueling Pianos. Marigold Plants & Spirits debuted in Five Points after two years of delays. And near the University of Denver, the owners of Englewood Grand opened a second watering hole that doesn’t have a name — but is stocked with plenty of booze.
