The Burnsley Hotel - Closed

1000 Grant St. Denver, CO 80203 | Central Denver | 303-830-1000

Location Description:

Once owned by an investment group that included vocalist Ella Fitzgerald, the posh Burnsley Hotel has long been home to a first-rate jazz club; local vocalists, pianists and other swingers perform in the lobby bar Thursday through Saturday nights. The upscale, candlelit atmosphere and mellow sounds make this a great date spot. The dining room at the Burnsley Hotel is a little jewel box that puts out a legendary breakfast spread. Later in the day, the menu features an array of reasonably priced entrees. But the best thing to order at the Burnsley is the burger, and the best place to eat it is in the bar, another gem that feels like a private club with its dark woods and cozy tables.
