It's been a long time coming, but the first Colorado location of Henry’s Tavern will open next month at 500 16th Street in the Denver Pavilions, in the big space previously occupied by Virgin Records — big enough for a restaurant that will seat 335 inside and another twenty on the patio.
The first Henry's opened a decade ago in the Henry Weinhard building in Portland, Oregon; today there are also Henry's outposts in Seattle and Plano, Texas. "As the name implies, Henry’s Tavern is first and foremost about kicking back and celebrating great beer, so Denver was a natural place for us to be given the area’s countless craft breweries and robust beer culture,” said Stacey Donahue of Restaurant Unlimited Inc., in last week's announcement setting the September opening date. “The new Henry’s location will have 100 beers on tap, and 45 of them will be devoted to offerings crafted right in the immediate area, so guests can drink local while also exploring emerging and established brews from around the world.”
Henry's is currently hiring; send a cover letter and resume to firstname.lastname@example.org or head over today for the job fair outside the restaurant.
