Paul Piciocchi has had his hands full this fall, turning the former Alto space at 1320 15th Street into not one, but three venues -- and also running his other popular Denver club, Tryst, at 1512 Larimer Street, right up the street from his new project.
A third of that project will debut this weekend, when The Drink, the portion of the space that's billed as a "soft tavern & bar," is slated to open. Rack & Rye, the gastropub, and mix, a live music venue, should come on line within the week.
