The Roslyn Grill was always one of Denver's most colorful dives, both in its original location on 14th Street and its second home at 504 East Colfax Avenue. But then Jimmy Callahan took over the spot in early 2011, spent a few months "overhauling it without having to do much," and opened it as Prohibition in May 2011. While it's not necessarily a speakeasy, Callahan wanted to make Prohibition a good, classic bar. So he installed a bar in the back that came from a hundred-year-old saloon in Indianapolis and a new mahogany bar in front with a Chicago drink rail. In keeping with the bar's name, the decor includes newspapers from the Prohibition era and a bunch of whiskey "prescriptions."
