Our Denver adventure begins at the heart of the city, Union Station. Your local guide will fill you in on the early days of the ‘Mile High City’ and its history with alcohol, through the prohibition era to now. From here we’ll head into the Lower Downtown neighborhood, known as LoDo. Here you’ll find Larimer Square, the city’s first block, first commercial district, and home to its first residence and first city hall. Despite all this history, the area is brimming with trendy bars and restaurants and remains a popular meeting place today. Follow your guide through the historic streets lined with old brick buildings. They’ll show you some of their favourite spots – you might wet your whistle in one of Denver’s oldest bars, or head underground into a cozy speakeasy for a taste of the old days and a chance to learn about the city’s founding pioneers. While you’re soaking up the atmosphere of each establishment and tasting Denver’s best beverages, your guide will let you in on the ingredients and history of each drink. From local favorites to international recipes, you’ll soon see that Denver’s cocktail scene is as diverse as it is delicious. You may get the chance to try some local twists on time-honoured classics, and your guide will dispel the myths and shed some light on controversies surrounding some of the most popular drinks on the menu. This spirited tour will make it clear why Denver is regarded as one of the world’s hotspots for cocktails, and you’ll leave with a deeper understanding and appreciation of the city, its history, and its craft cocktail scene. If you’re spending more time in Denver after your tour, your guide will have great tips on where to eat and drink in Larimer Square, LoDo and beyond, so be sure to pick their brain before your finish!
