Death & Co quickly became one of New York City’s most famed cocktail lounges after the speakeasy-style bar debuted in 2006. It also became one of the most critically acclaimed, winning major industry awards including America’s Best Cocktail Bar and World’s Best Cocktail Menu in the years following. The NYC establishment has long been a must-visit destination for traveling cocktail connoisseurs. Now, for the first time ever, the iconic bar is bringing its distinctive concept to a new destination out west. As of May 4, Death & Co Denver is officially open for business in the Mile High City’s River North Art District—known locally as RiNo.
Death & Co Denver encompasses the entire lobby level of The Ramble Hotel, a 50-room, locally owned and operated boutique hotel, which this month became the first to open in RiNo. The bar will channel the same key elements that made Death & Co’s New York flagship so beloved—table service, warm hospitality, highly knowledgeable and talented staff—but features a completely updated cocktail menu.
Alongside the cocktail program, guests will find a culinary menu offering everything from small snacks (try the smoked trout) to entrées and family-style plates. The full menu can be found here.
Beyond the bar, Death & Co concepts are woven throughout The Ramble Hotel, including DC/AM, a café bar serving breakfast and lunch. Throughout May, the hotel will debut other Death & Co-inspired spaces, among them Suite 6A, a 20-seat bar featuring a cocktail tasting menu; The Garden, an outdoor courtyard bar and restaurant; and Vauxhall, a theater space (with a private entrance off Larimer Street) featuring a dedicated bar and programmed events, including film screenings, live performances, comedy, and art exhibitions.
“We’ve always believed that what makes the Death & Co brand special is more than just our little bar in the East Village,” says Ravi DeRossi, co-owner of Death & Co. “Death & Co Denver is an evolution from where we began years ago, and we couldn’t be more excited to bring that energy to Denver’s thriving food and drink scene.”
