The owners say they wanted to bring more culture to the Denver area and give people a chance to experience Africa -- without taking a sixteen-hour plane trip. "It's all of Africa. We have West, East, South, Central, everywhere in Africa," explains Adwoa. In many African cultures, sitting on the floor and eating communally as a group is a common practice. That's an option at the new restaurant. There's also more standard seating. After a soft opening yesterday, this African Grill & Bar will host a grand-opening party on Saturday, October 19, when a cultural troop will perfform from 5 to 10 p.m. and a DJ will spin tunes from 10 p.m. to 2 a.m. Starting next week, the restaurant's regular hours will be Monday through Thursday from 11 a.m. to 10 p.m., Fridays and Saturdays from noon to midnight, and Sundays from 11 a.m to 9 p.m.
