The place is a trip back in time. It is both classy and cozy. You can absolutely imagine being in a 20's speakeasy with businessmen and travelers. The drinks were delicious and our server was fantastic - warm and just a little sassy. One of...More

Apparently the cruise room is something of an institution in Denver and it did not disappoint. Very happy to have made the effort coming for drinks.

We found out about this place on a tour, and dropped in for a cocktail afterwards. I couldn't stay there all night, but once you know the history of the joint and why it's so red, it's kind of fun to step back in time....More

Great vibe! Great drinks! Timeless Denver classic and a must have stop for a drink or two. Get there early for happy hour or hit it for a late night drink.
