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

It's hard to argue with most of the changes made during the six-week-long renovation of theWazee Supper Club. For the first time in forty years, for example, the restaurant has air-conditioning -- and it couldn't have been introduced at a better time. And while the dumbwaiter is no longer needed to send food to the mezzanine -- there's a brand-spanking-new kitchen on the other side of the space -- it's still in place, with a new tray to steady drink orders on their way up. We can live with the new bathrooms, too.

But the new sign shown above, which just appeared over the front door? To remember how things used to be, see the old sign on the next page:

Apparently things no longer go better with Coke...

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.
