The new pub features twenty craft beer on tap, mostly from Colorado, as well as twenty wines by the glass, Colorado-produced spirits and a limited menu focused on made-from-scratch burgers and Belgian-style frites with dipping sauces.
"This will be more of a social spot, a nicer social establishment, and less of a dinner one," says co-owner Kurt Von Reiter.
Von Reiter was the general manager at the Pour House Pub for seven years downtown. His business partner is Steve Waldo, who worked for Highland Tap & Burger. "We are two bartenders and GMs who finally got a chance to do our own thing," he says.
The building is the former home of the Comfort Cafe, a nonprofit, pay-what-you-can restaurant that closed last September.
West End will be open from 3 p.m. to midnight during the week and from 3 p.m. to 2 a.m. on Fridays and Saturdays.
