Building on the success of Uncle, his ramen joint, Tommy Lee opened Hop Alley (named for Denver’s long-gone Chinatown) in 2015. The restaurant’s gritty-chic aesthetic and hip-hop vibe are the perfect setting for exploring Lee’s exhilarating take on Chinese food, with interpretations of Cantonese, Sichuan and Beijing-inspired dishes (among other regions). Equally inspiring is Hop Alley’s thoroughly modern list of wine, beer and cider.
