Just hop on the free mall ride to take a peek at this place, even if you don't take a train or have a beer in the fabulous grand lobby. It's a beautiful space with great food options, bar options, etc with conversational seating and game tables for public use.

I am so happy with the renovation on Union Station. It's so modern with a twist of old fashioned train station feel. Its a wonderfully light area with plenty of seating and bars, restaurants, and shops to keep you occupied. We tried several of the bars (Terminal Bar, The Cooper Lounge, and Stoic and Genuine). I really enjoyed the atmosphere... More

Had a wonderful time eating dinner, people-watching, and enjoying the beauty of the newly remodeled train station. Loved how the building reflects it's history. Easy valet parking, fun choices for dinner, and a great place to spend a few hours.

We walked through the station and were impressed with the utilitarian layout for the buses, and the architecture. Combined with the hustle and bustle in the original parts, it makes an interesting place to stroll through and relax at one of the restaurants there.

I love rail stations, and hate to see fine old buildings go to pot. So i was happy to see how nicely Denver Union Station has been restored. Admittedly, some of the old rail-oriented atmosphere has been traded off, in return for adding some trendy eateries and stores. But overall, the project is nicely done. What was once the "waiting...

What a beautiful building- and to the team who restored it- we owe you a big thank you. You took a great building and kept it beautiful. Sure- updated and modern- but respecting all the beauty of the original. Thank you. Great restaurants around it. Nice coffee and pastry place on the ground level. Cool bar. Cooper Bar upstairs?

WOW! Union Station is VASTLY different than my last purposeful visit here over a decade ago. Back then, I was waiting for a train to Chicago, and this great hall was pretty sketchy and dead with vast, unused areas. This past Saturday, it was lively and wonderful. We even saw a classy-looking wedding party make their way through the great... More

While pleased it has been restored, we were underwhelmed by recently re-opened Union Station in the heart of Denver's funky old town. Indeed the main waiting room is strikingly handsome, but it seems to be little more than a series of pubs w/ lots of people sitting around (on tasteless couches) with drinks in their hands. Where's the history w/... More

What an incredible piece of history. Newly renovated - step back in time and enjoy a great coffee shop as well. Staff at the Amtak train window are very helpful and the new track waiting area is beautiful. Still more finishing touches outside and one more restaurant. A must see location and take the train west for beautiful vistas.
