Cooper Lounge is one of the most sophisticated bars in Denver. Located in Union Station, it is actually hidden from plain site. It is a small space tucked away and is somewhat hidden by the railing wrapping around the second story. Cooper Lounge acts as a lounge area for the Crawford Hotel, but it is also open to the public.
The public can enjoy the feel of this swanky 1930’s style bar anytime. Walk ins are welcome from the desk on the South side of the Great Hall near Amtrak. The concierge will then escort you to the second floor when seating is available at Cooper Lounge. You may have to wait for seating, as space is limited, but the high end drinks, knowledgeable bar tenders and beautiful views of downtown and Union Station make it worth it.
Enjoy an extensive wine list or cocktails such as:
Timeless Old Fashioned with Peach Street Straight Bourbon served over muddled sugar, orange twist, and lemon twist with angostura bitters.
Coloradier with Breckenridge Bourbon stirred with Breckenridge Bitters and Sweet Vermouth, served with an orange twist.
Palisaide Sour with Peach Street Pear Eu de Vie, Egg Whites, Lemon Juice, and Simple Syrup, shaken and finished with Black Walnut Bitters.
