An outstanding example of Art Deco combined with a talented staff serving classic cocktails is divine. No charge to admire the décor, but you will want to stay and enjoy a drink.

We found the Cruise room bar during a scavenger hunt - looking for the oldest prohibition bar with the best drinks in Denver. Found it! Yes, the entire inside is TINY (galley style) with a pink hue. BEST martinis in Denver, didn't you know?
