Description: Marlowe's echoes with the history and charm of Denver and the 16th Street Mall. Since opening our doors on the ground floor of the Historic Kittredge Building in 1982, Marlowe's witnessed downtown's steady growth from parking lots to skyscrapers. Our huge, imported sliding windows open to the 16th Street Mall and afford a wonderful opportunity for guests to watch downtown life glide past, while our hand-crafted Vermont cherry wood bars, vaulted ceilings and black-and-white tile floors are just a taste of our unique architectural style. Marlowe's serves lunch from 11am until 4pm every day of the week. We serve dinner from 4:30pm until 10pm Sunday-Thursday, and from 4:30pm until 11pm Friday and Saturday. You can join us for our delicious (and locally-sourced) brunch on Saturday and Sunday starting at 9am and going until 4pm. We have a late night menu, consisting of just our appetizers, every night for an hour after we stop serving our full menu. Marlowe's also has sizeable wine, cocktail and beer lists. We offer over 21 draughts, more than half from local breweries. Happy Hour is Monday-Friday from 3pm until 7pm and from 10pm until close. Since Marlowe's grand opening more than three decades ago, we have been one of Denver's most popular spots for lunch, after-work cocktails and dinner. We continue to be committed to our community and pride ourselves on being the oldest locally owned and operated restaurant on the 16th Street Mall. We place strong emphasis on locally sourced products and love being a staple of the Downtown Denver scene!

“Lunch time visit”
Reviewed June 18, 2013

Stopped here after arriving in Denver and walking 16th St. mall. Tried the Tuscan salad and Cheese Steak sandwich. Salad had a nice variety of European greens but the dressing was a little bland. Cheese steak sandwich was filling and flavorful. Had a little kick to it. I think the au jus had jalapenos in it! No problems getting seated and service was fast.

“First Visit to Denver, nice choice.”
Reviewed June 5, 2013 via mobile

I was just in town on business, we ate here as a small group. The service was excellent and we loved the food, everyone was pleased with what they got. I was especially impressed that I ordered a shaken martini and it came out with ice crystals floating on top, hats off to the bar tender!

“Always a great choice”
Reviewed June 4, 2013

Wonderful location right on the 16th St Mall, we have been coming here for 20 years and have always had a great experience. Food and drinks always delicious, service is wonderful and friendly without being stodgy. Absolutely love the outside seating but they also have great seats inside and open big doors to let you see out as well. Bar is very comfortable too. Great location if you have tickets to an event at the Paramount Theatre as well. Just a really nice place to go that looks more upscale but doesn't feel stuffy!!

“Nice Break”
Reviewed May 25, 2013

Nice reprieve from 16th Street. Stopped in to get out of the rain and was greeted and told of their happy hour menu, so we opted for the bar. The vibe is cool, the crowd was energetic and the options were great.
In looking for a red, beefy wine, the bartender’s recommendation was right on point (a fab Bordeaux). Service was great, staff was helpful and friendly. Prices were reasonable. I’ll be back.
