The Lobby is at heart a neighborhood restaurant and bar dishing up American fare that will make you feel right at home. Originally opened in 2009 The Lobby has continuously strived to be an oasis in the city with no fear of adapting to our ever-evolving guests. With a new vision and fresh energy, Executive Chef Brandon Muncy has joined the team and created a menu that fits our new mantra: Playful Eats. Serious Drinks. With 22 Colorado drafts, our famous bottomless mimosas, a seasonal cocktail list and a historic building that features the unique and beautiful Courtyard Patio, we're here for you to gather, feast and imbibe. We are proud to be a family owned business, and endeavor to support other Colorado owned businesses whenever we can. When possible, we make all of our dishes are made from scratch using fresh, local ingredients, including those from our neighbors at Happy Leaf Kombucha and Great Divide Brewing Company. We are avid supporters of Colorado breweries and distilleries, featuring a rotating and growing selection that compliments the seasons and our menu. Please, enjoy your time at The Lobby, tell all of your friends, and let us know what you think!

Pleasant dinner outside on summer evening

A great place for dinner and beer, especially when sitting outside in the patio garden on a warm August evening. Very welcoming and nice staff. We found the food very good (the meat loaf was excellent). Large selection of beers. The place is some way outside the Lower Downtown area; if you walk... read more

We go here from time to time because the staff is friendly and attentive, the beer selection is very good, and the food is decent. Not a place for foodies, but if you want to sit in a hidden garden on a hot summer day with your choice of tasty cold beers (and who doesn't want to do that?), give... More

The Lobby is located a bit off the beaten path downtown, which probably explains why they were not terribly busy at 7:30 pm on a Friday evening. They have a good size patio that makes you feel like you are dining in a park or someone's backyard. There were trees all around and grass – uncommon for most patios in... More

We came from Hawaii hearing the Great Divide had the best local micro beers. After walking there we were disappointed because clearly not a place for our toddler. But next door there was The Lobby. The historic building now restaurant was very child friendly despite the Yelp review that said no kids. They even had fresh milk and cookies after... More

Our group of seven arrived right after noon and were told the wait would be around 40 minutes. We decided to wait at the bar (which was SUPER crowded ... the staff had to walk through several groups to get to the tables they were serving ... it was awkward). It took quite some time to get bottomless mimosas, but... More

My advice - order all of the appetisers and a few glasses of the decent wine on offer and get into it. If the Bleu Balls, Croquets and assorted pickles are anything to go by then the rest on the small yet exclusive menu should be worthwhile. We had the meatloaf and 'cheesy steak' and while they were very good... More

However, The Lobby is something for me to review. Seven of us went last night to Happy Hour and chose The Lobby because of the large outdoor patio and shade. That part was great. Uncomfortable iron chairs, but a great space to sit outside. We ordered a variety of different foods and found none of them impressive. The B Sprout... More

Stopped in on our way to the brewey next door. We noticed after we found a parking place; this places front door right in front of us so we changed direction and went it there instead! We were greeted kindly by the bartender and ordered up some drinks. The happy hour was great! The place is unique in decor. Didn't... More

The restaurant is located on the first floor of a very cool historic building, and there are exposed brick walls inside which create a very cool ambiance. This is a great spot for brunch as they have cheap bottomless mimosas. Their menu is very unique. I had the
