Welcome to Casa Bonita.
In March 2020, Colorado's most iconic pop-culture palace was shuttered. But suddenly this month, the doors to Casa Bonita were unlocked, and people were welcomed inside the pink marvel at 6715 West Colfax Avenue — not to eat, but to take a free tour of the place, which debuted in 1974 and is now getting ready to reopen later this summer. Evan Semón took the tour and came back with these photos.
