“Escape the airport!”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed March 3, 2012

With light fare, fine wines, cocktails this lounge is the nicest area to relax while at Denver Airport! Each booth has an electrical outlet so you can charge your phone while you eat. I had the breakfast Salmon platter and it was good. Overall it's a bit pricier, but the atmosphere makes the few extra dollars worth it!

“Great location and ambiance; mediocre food; poor wi-fi”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed January 31, 2012

A good location to hang out for a long wait in DIA terminal B. It's got almost everything a boy could want: lounge chairs with power plugs, micro brews on tap, big screens for the game, a decent wine and cocktail list; they've even got a nice upper deck view of the terminal B hub.

I had an excellent milk stout (from Avery) in my lounge chair and did a little work.

They have food too - mostly apps and small plates. This is where they fell short: my burrata app came with fairly good cheese, but the tomatoes weren't fresh, the herbs were wilted, and the rosemary bread was stale. $14 for this. Jeez.

The other issue - The wi-fi signal was surprisingly bad. I got so annoyed with the re-connects that I decided not to linger.

“milehigh civilization: wine bar and nouveau tapas”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed July 21, 2011

This a new addition to the Mezzanine eating and drinking options (Wolfgang Puck and Cantina Grill) on Concourse B at Denver airport. it specializes in wine flight - typically 2oz servings of three different wines - serves with food plates of various types.
The wine variety and quality of high, flights and wines by the glass vary in cost. They also have beer and scotch, cocktails.
The food is dressed as snack plates and is light which is most fine for a quick airport bite. If you talk to the waiting staff they can provide something more substantial.
Worth a stop.
