We’ve all been faced with the “Where should we go?” question;  sometimes the answer is obvious, but at other times we need help. Whether it’s finding the perfect place to celebrate the right occasion, determining what kitchen can accommodate an unusual dietary restriction, or maybe just discovering a new place to satisfy a late-night craving, we've got you covered. The Colorado Concierge will help you find the best restaurant, bar or cafe to suit your specific needs.

Our first question comes from Julie:

 I have a new friend who is in a wheelchair. When looking for places to go for coffee or a happy hour, I found few to no suggestions for where those in wheelchairs can feel comfortable. This seems like a very odd oversight in Denver tourism; everyone should have a chance to enjoy our great city. Just because you are in a chair doesn't mean you are dead! 


Finding a fun spot to grab coffee and absorb Denver’s local beverage culture shouldn’t be defeated by something as basic as wheelchair accessibility. Just because you're in a wheelchair doesn't mean you can't experience prime seating, a gorgeous patio or bar views. For simplicity’s sake, we’ll avoid recommending anywhere with stairs to the entrance, tight doorways, cramped quarters, difficult parking and unfortunate bathrooms. Here are some accessible options for coffee and cocktails.

For Coffee:
