Dierks Bentley’s Whiskey Row announces the highly anticipated Denver opening on New Year’s Eve. The popular live music restaurant and bar will open at 1946 Market Street in the heart of Denver’s LoDo neighborhood, a mere block from Coors Field. Whiskey Row will feature live music with local artists five days a week, and the area’s top DJ’s will be featured Thursday through Sunday.
The 22,000-square-foot finished location is comprised of two existing buildings that have undergone major renovations, including a 6,000-square-foot addition. In addition to the southern-inspired food and culinary cocktails, guests will notice a state-of-the-art sound system using tour-grade components, a stage for live music with a 65-foot immersive LED wall, and a large outdoor patio with lawn games.
“I spend a lot of time in Colorado, so it was definitely the most fitting next spot for Whiskey Row,” said Bentley of the opening of his fifth Dierks Bentley’s Whiskey Row. “The neighborhood is a great vibe for experiencing Denver whether you’re a local or a tourist, and I can’t wait until I get to be back out there and have a cold one in the Mile High City at my very own place.”
The project is part of a joint venture between Monfort Companies, Iconic Investments, and Riot Hospitality Group. Additional groups collaborating on Dierks Bentley’s Whiskey Row include Alpine Bank, Circle West Architects, and Jaco General Contractor, Inc.
“We are extremely proud to be opening this exciting venue in Denver,” said Ryan Hibbert, CEO Riot Hospitality Group. “Having partners like Monfort Companies and Iconic Investments has made this an incredibly strong project. We are looking forward to becoming woven into the fabric of the Denver lifestyle and becoming great neighbors in the LoDo District.”
