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!

Reviewed September 3, 2013

We were staying at the nearby Comfort Inn and needed a place with good food and service and we found that at Marlowe's! The ambiance is fantastic - a little historic but modern service and a menu with variety. Our server was very attentive and fast, but not bothersome. I'll be back here when I visit Denver again!

“Right on the Mall”
Reviewed September 3, 2013

I had the jambalaya and it was pretty good with shrimp and chorizo, but I've definitely had better. The establishment was busy and loud....we were there on a Wednesday night about 6pm. The barmaid from Coyote Ugly's recommended it along with two other restaurants beside it. was pricey for average food.

“Pleased to support Local especially when it's good”
Reviewed August 30, 2013

This was our first trip to Denver. We chatted with Marlowe's hostess, Emily, early in the afternoon. She was so nice, we came back for dinner. The food was great, the drinks were cold. Our server Maggie was terrific. We had the Charcuterie Board appetizer of local sausages, kraut, and other goodies, pasta and salad. It was all delicious. Locally owned, local produce. We will definitely be back.

Thank you for the review and we are glad to see we were able to be a part of your first trip to Denver. Our staff is a lot of the reason that people come back and it looks like Emily and Maggie reminded us of just that. Being locally owned and using local products is something that we pride ourselves on to give people from out of town something that is truly Colorado. We will see you when you return!

Thank you for the review! We always like to hear when the staff does a great job but like you said attentive and helpful. To us this means they are really doing their job great to provide you with the best possible experience. The patio seating is definitely the place to be on the mall to take in all the sights of Denver. Glad you had a great meal and experience and we look forward to providing it for you again.

“Great Steaks / Great Service”
Reviewed August 29, 2013

Marlowe's is a restaurant with great ambiance right on 16th Street in downtown Denver. The ambiance is comfortable with big screen TVs showing various sporting events. The food was really great. Steaks were cooked perfectly, juicy and tender. Several in the party I was with chose the halibut option and they were very pleased. The restaurant also has a very good wine selection. Service was attentive but did not hover. I would definitely go back when in Denver.
