Tamayo may very well be the best place in Denver to watch a sunset. It’s certainly the best place in Denver to watch a sunset while shooting a flight of tequila. From the spacious rooftop deck of Richard Sandoval’s upscale Mexican restaurant at the edge of Larimer Square, you have a fabulous view of the Auraria campus and the mountains beyond.
The food and drinks are as stunning as the setting (especially during happy hour from 5-7 p.m. weekdays, when there are alternatives to the often-pricey offerings), which explains why Tamayo has been booked for private parties through the entire Democratic National Convention in late August. But for the next eighty days, it's all yours. Enjoy it while you can.
