This dark, subterranean enclave has seen decades of diners come and go in Cherry Creek North. The kitchen cooks up nostalgic American classics for the regulars who fill the plush, high chairs and wooden booths, and the bar mixes stiff cocktails for the regulars who belly up to a bar that still shows the burn marks of the cigarettes once allowed inside. Owner Rodney Utz caters to an older, often divorced crowd, people looking for a comfortable spot to find food and drinks outside the house -- a spot that also has a real sense of community.
