The Hornet

76 Broadway Denver, CO 80203 | Central Denver | 303-777-7676

Location Description:

Oh, how things change. What was Mary & Lou's Cafe for a million years is now a trendy diner for the new century, full of hip hustle and bustle. The huge, laughter-filled room has a buzz, and the fusion-y menu seems to appeal to cops, artists, businesspeople and frat boys alike. Patrons get a snootful of music with their drinks on Saturdays; finding a seat may not always be easy, but enjoying the sweet bebop combos is almost guaranteed.
