If these stools could talk! The Burnsley Hotel closed yesterday, and with that closure Denver lost an elegant hotel dining room and a tucked-away bar that was many things for many people...
Including a great spot for an assignation. See also: - Reader: I'm bummed to see the Burnsley go - Bye-bye, Burnsley - The Burnsley Hotel -- and its restaurant and bar -- closing in December
If there were ever a bar built for marital infidelity, it was this one. And that's all I'm saying.
But others used the bar to...talk. Says frazier:
Bummer. This was one of the few nice places in town with a laid-back atmosphere, good for a drink after work that turns into an evening out.
But let's think positive. What's another place like that, quiet enough to talk without the noisy DBs and the wall-to-wall sports TVs, where you can actually park? Suggestions welcome!
Bars where you can park and talk? Bars where you can talk and then park (or rent a room)? Post your suggestions below.
