Rialto Cafe

934 16th St. Denver, CO 80202 | Downtown Denver | 303-893-2233

Location Description:

The Rialto Cafe is one of those rare exceptions to the rule that hotel restaurants are good for nothing but drinking, smoking and screwing. Sure, you can drink here, and even take a room next door at the Marriott Courtyard if the urge strikes. But first you should grab a quick snack in the elegant, dark-wood bar or enjoy a two-hour lunch in the dining room, which inspires a certain lazy tranquility with its Old Hollywood feel and extensive menu.
