Cru: A Wine Bar

1442 Larimer St. Denver, CO 80202 | Downtown Denver | 303-893-9463

Location Description:

Wine cubbies line the back wall of the high-ceilinged sliver of Larimer Square space occupied by Cru: A Wine Bar. The richly appointed room fills with an after-work crowd in the late afternoon, as business types wind down over a glass of wine and a snack during happy hour while others rev up for a big evening ahead. Later at night, the low cherry tables and bar are illuminated by the soft glow of candles, and the conversations get more intimate. Although the big draw is wine - offered by the bottle, by the glass and in dozens of wine flights - Cru proffers sizable cheese and charcuterie boards as well as a full dinner menu to soak up all that alcohol. The wine menu is more international, with bottles that originate everywhere from South America to California; the food selection includes cheese plates and stone-fired pizzas. All the servers give you very personalized attention, and that and the bar's intimate feel make this a perfect choice for a romantic rendezvous or a laid-back meeting.
