Support the independent voice of Denver and help keep the future of Westword free.

The previous occupant of 1066 South Gaylord, Chi Bistro, was one of Jason Sheehan's most hated restaurants, as is evident from this review.

But everyone -- parking-paranoid Wash Park residents included -- should be pleased by the place that will be opening in that spot on Monday, October 27. It's the Tavern Wash Park, the fifth in a string of local Taverns brought to us by Frank Schultz (who also owns the Cowboy Lounge and the Soiled Dove). His bars have been good neighbors in their other locations -- Downtown (in the original Soiled Dove location), Uptown, the Tech Center and Lowry -- and the Wash Park model promises the same upscale atmosphere and tavern food, seven days a week.

Keep Westword Free... Since we started Westword, it has been defined as the free, independent voice of Denver, and we would like to keep it that way. Offering our readers free access to incisive coverage of local news, food and culture. Producing stories on everything from political scandals to the hottest new bands, with gutsy reporting, stylish writing, and staffers who've won everything from the Society of Professional Journalists' Sigma Delta Chi feature-writing award to the Casey Medal for Meritorious Journalism. But with local journalism's existence under siege and advertising revenue setbacks having a larger impact, it is important now more than ever for us to rally support behind funding our local journalism. You can help by participating in our "I Support" membership program, allowing us to keep covering Denver with no paywalls.
