When Bar Luxe opened three years ago, it was a sleek Cherry Creek bar, soon to be joined by Euro, a hip Cherry Creek restaurant helmed by Olav Peterson, formerly of Restaurant 1515. But Euro was gone by the end of 2007 (Peterson is now at Bistro One), and Bar Luxe finally gave up the ghost last year.
Now the bi-level, bifurcated space at 231 Milwaukee Street is back on the block. No charge for the ghosts of previous inhabitants, including Manhattan Grill (shown here), Vartan Jazz and the Bay Wolf and the Kiva. For some interesting history, read Kyle Wagner's Manhattan Grill review.
