More Burger Bars Are Coming Your Way From Ignite and Bad Daddy's

Denver is reaching saturation point with burger bars, so restaurant groups looking to expand their beefy footprints are heading for the suburbs. Two established hamburger joints in Denver just announced that they'll be putting outposts in Arvada and Greenwood Village.

Concept Restaurant Group, owner of Ignite Burgers & Lounge in the Ballpark neighborhood, also operates Woody's Tavern in Arvada. The group closed Woody's yesterday after nineteen years in business and will reopen the space on July 6 as Ignite Ale House & Kitchen, featuring the same list of burgers as at the downtown original plus an expanded menu of pizzas, salads and sandwiches. The Arvada version of Ignite will also focus on Colorado craft beers, only with a twist: beer will be international styles created by local breweries — like  German-style lager from Prost or a Belgian-style Framboise Lambic from Copper Kettle Brewing Company. The interior will be completely gutted and redone with modern decor, including a twenty-foot rowing skiff that belongs to Concept Restaurant partner Frank Day.

East Denver residents may be familiar with the Woody's Tavern name, too; an outpost open on East Evans Avenue since the 1990s closed in late May. That property is  now for sale.

Further south, Bad Daddy's Burger Bar is installing its fourth metro-area location in the Landmark development, next to Hapa Sushi. Bad Daddy's currently runs locations in Cherry Creek North, Southland Shopping Center and Northglenn. Good Times Burgers, based in Golden, purchased the entire North Carolina-based Bad Daddy's chain in early May, so we could see more of these popping up in Colorado. The latest Bad Daddy's takes the place of previous tenant Ali Baba Grill, which closed earlier this year and will move to LoHi; look for this burger joint in October.
