You’ll have a Pipe Dream. The kiwi cocktail sounds fresh and lively. No, you’ll try a Liar’s Gambit instead. Spice and tea seem wintry. Wait, the Moonrunner just caught your eye. Lillet Rose and sparkling rosé look festive. Yes, you’ll start with that, please. It’s a good thing you have a few days to work your way through this exciting cocktail list.

These are just three of the drinks you want to try at Death & Co’s first outpost. The original speakeasy-style bar opened in the East Village 14 years ago. It quickly started earning accolades, including the top spot on the World’s 50 Best Bars list. These are not your typical cocktails. They’re seasonal, creative, and trendsetting. Plus, lucky for you, they’re right at your hotel in Denver.

That would be the Ramble Hotel. The industrial-chic hotel just opened last spring. The warehouse-style building became the first—and much-needed—hotel in Denver’s trendy River North Art District (RiNo). Art galleries, breweries, concert venues, and food halls were already here. You had to leave your favorite neighborhood at the end of the night, though. That makes the Ramble Hotel a game-changer.

You loved the vibe as soon as you arrived. Actually, the place didn’t even feel like a hotel. With high windows, blue-velvet couches, leather armchairs, a huge teardrop-shaped chandelier, and lots of leafy green plants, it looked more like a lounge than a lobby. The French-salon vibe, where people gather for drinks and conversation, was the team’s plan all along.

The refined look continues upstairs into the wood-paneled rooms. They’ve been painted Prussian blue and paired with hickory floors, antique Persian rugs, and brass accents. Sliding barn doors lead to sleek bathrooms. They have slate floors and glam vanity mirrors. While Middle State Coffee, a locally curated minibar, and custom-blended toiletries are among the amenities. You might have a new favorite spot within RiNo now.
