One of the most beautiful and idyllic places in Denver. My favorite stop for a summer concert as well. Great venue for the very intimate concerts.

I know they have two restaurants there, a cafe and a bistro, but I don't recall seeing any alcoholic beverages for sale. You can probably check the menus for each place online. I believe they are called the Hive Garden... More
