Let’s be honest…We ALL like to drink away the workday blues from time to time. If you’re like me, you find yourself at the same watering hole time after time. After pondering for a moment, the idea of trying something new, we revert to our old faithful barstool where we know the bartender and the drink specials. This new weekly column, entitled “Where to Drink This Week” is a helpful hitch in dragging you out of the old routine and on to new places and clever cocktails. Hey, you might even meet some new people…
The Corner Office, located in the Curtis Hotel at 14th and Curtis, is bound to make your old habits die hard. A 1970’s mod décor invites the chic of Denver to enjoy not one, but two, daily happy hours. Choose to snuggle up in a booth or plant yourself at the sleek wooden bar in a rather comfortable, high-backed bar stool and enjoy a diversified happy hour menu in an up-beat atmosphere.
The food and drink menu at TCO won’t leave you hanging either. The restaurant offers a rather lengthy food menu, with two categories. Ordering from the “Street Food” portion of the menu won’t break the bank. Choose from Lemon Edamame, Baja Fish Taco, Pork Belly Sliders and more for under five dollars, or, if you’re a bit hungrier, you will find Ramen and a selection of meat and cheese boards under the “Share-ables” section. The food at TCO never disappoints and with the majority of the menu under the five dollar marker, you can work dinner into your happy hour budget.
Many happy hours around the city offer simple happy hour drink deal for those who like to drink cheaply. Specials such as, $3 drafts or $4 wells, are in abundance. Other happy hours feature a dollar or two off the venues’ $10 specialty cocktails. $8 drinks are not really my idea of a happy hour “deal.” TCO gives guests the best of both worlds with a $5 limited specialty drink menu spot-lighting a yummy Makers Mark concoction and a “Drink Slinger’s Choice,” among others. Still too spendy? Beers all ring in at under $3 with a decent selection of Colorado brews and $2 PBR drafts.
If you’re looking for a hip, new spot for your afternoon, or late night, indulgences, swing by The Corner office for Happy Hour from 3-6pm or 9pm to close ANY night of the week. – Hillary Bonner
