Rackhouse Pub - Closed

208 S. Kalamath St. Denver, CO 80223 | Southwest Denver | 720-570-7824

Location Description:

In 2009, when Stranahan's Colorado Whiskey moved its distilling operations into the old Heavenly Daze Brewery space, Chris Rippe opened the Rackhouse Pub in what had been Heavenly Daze's restaurant. The place draws its inspiration from both the rough and refined spirit of whiskey. "Rackhouse" refers to the part of a distillery where spirits are racked in barrels and stored, so barrels feature prominently in the decor. But this is no dusty cellar: Rows of leather-topped booths and polished wood tables fill the cavernous dining room; a massive and ornate bar, surfaced with granite, lines one wall. That bar's spirit focus is whiskey, of course, supplemented by twenty tap lines that pour a well-rounded selection of Colorado craft beer in addition to one out-of-state brew. The substantial drinks list is supplemented by a board featuring hearty pub fare that the kitchen has attempted to refine with local ingredients; in addition to burgers, pizzas and wings, the menu also features such trendy items as bone marrow and lobster mac and cheese.
