Arch Pizza will open its third St. Louis-style pie hole on Saturday

Is St. Louis taking over Denver? On Saturday, March 8, Arch Pizza Co. will open its third St. Louis-style pizza restaurant in less than a year. And it will be the biggest one yet, with 2,800 square feet indoors and plenty of outdoor dining space outside, too, at 10101 East Hampden Avenue. The original Arch opened just five months ago at 6110 East Colfax Avenue; a second store opened in December in Lone Tree.

"We're very excited to open our third location, just five months after opening our first store on Colfax," says owner Marc Dak. "The community support and feedback has been extremely valuable, and we're excited to bring a different take on pizza to Colorado. We hope that people from St. Louis feel like they've gone home when they taste Arch Pizza, but we also hope that people who have never tried St. Louis-style pizza feel they've discovered a wonderful alternative to the pizza they know. We're different. We know it. And we couldn't be more thankful to our fellow Coloradans for trying us out!"

Saturday's grand opening will feature not just plenty of St. Louis-style pies, but a performance by My Body Sings Electric, one of Denver's hot indie bands.
