It’s a good time to be a Denver drinker. Especially now that Booz Hall is open: The unique concept boasts five separate tasting rooms in its 5,000-square-foot space, making it a one-stop shop for imbibing Colorado cocktails. “This is the first of its kind—nothing like this has ever happened before,” says co-founder Josh Sampson of the endeavor. “This is the future of fun.”
How fun? Envision five distinct tasting rooms dedicated to Colorado-made spirits and wine—the current lineup includes 3 Hundred Moonshine, Rising Sun Distillery, Jack Rabbit Hill Farm, State 38, and Woods Distillery—in a labyrinthine layout punctuated by artwork from local companies Red Wolf Collective and Goose & The Goat Shoes.
While choosing what to imbibe from such delicious options is tricky, we recommend Rising Sun’s Western Slope cocktail, made with the distillery’s floral lavender-hibiscus liqueur. You can also just swing by to pick up a bottle of something to take home. This summer’s lineup of vendors will eventually rotate out to include new brewers, distillers, or vintners. Says Sampson: “It’s a compound—boozeville, if you will.”
Bonus: Booz Hall shares a courtyard with Stem Ciders, where you’ll find a rotating selection of food trucks most evenings.
