Ship Tavern

Neighborhood: Downtown Denver
Once a gentleman’s lounge, this space in the venerable Brown Palace was remodeled into a seafaring bar that opened eight months after Prohibition ended. The fish-out-of-water nautical theme was inspired by a collection of model clipper ships that the hotel’s then-owner brought home from a trip and his wife suggested should shove off. Although recent decor changes have been disappointing, a seat at the bar is still a swell spot to let history wash over you.
