This iconic clock tower became a Denver landmark when it was completed in 1910 as part of the Daniels & Fisher department store. Inspired by the Campanile in Venice and designed by architect Frederick Sterner, the 20-story edifice was the tallest building west of the Mississippi when it was built (Seattle’s 484-feet-tall Smith Tower took the title in 1914). Guided trips into its interior are available through Historic Denver Walking Tours. The department store was demolished around the early 1970s, but the tower soldiers on alone, and serves as a space for weddings, corporate gatherings, parties, and occasional performances. Find some laughter and entertainment on the weekends at Lannie’s Clocktower Cabaret in the tower's basement.
