Staycation: Rejuvenation Retreat at The Oxford Hotel

The Oxford Hotel Just a stone’s throw away from Union Station is a quaint little hotel that has provided refuge for city goers to rest their feet and heads after a long day exploring the Mile High City. The Oxford is Denver’s most historic hotel having opened in 1891. Just ten years before the beginning…

Exposing the Mystery that is Arcana

When walking into Arcana, you feel like you are stepping back in time. The decor is a rustic and contemporary twist on 1920s decor. It could have been the set for a scene in the Great Gatsby. The ambiance makes the restaurant super inviting and sets a trendy tone. The rustic feel shines through even…

Staycation: DoubleTree by Hilton Vail

One of the best parts about living in Colorado is the ease of booking getaways. The mountains are just right up the road and when it is time to let loose, all you have to do is book a hotel in the hills and head up on a Friday after work. There are many destinations…

The Apple of My Rib Eye

Nestled in the heart of Boulder, right off Pearl St. mall, there is a little cubby that is home to one of the most elegant and intriguing restaurants I have been to, Steakhouse No. 316. It’s dimly lit rooms and borderline gothic, yet glamorous, decor leaves you at ease and ready for relaxation. To aid…

A Colorful Evening at Palace Arms

Since 1892, The Brown Palace has been setting the standard for style and class around Denver. Not only do people want to stay the night, it is an equally eloquent place to dine. I was reminded of this upon my recent visit. Last week, Palace Arms invited food lovers from around the city to try out the…

Italian Hot Spot Enchanting the Pasta Lovers of LoHi

You know those evenings when you turn to your partner and ask what they want for dinner and you get a flashback to The Notebook meme where Ryan Gosling is yelling “what do you want” at Rachel McAdams as she says over and over, “I don’t know!” Worry not my friends, I have an answer…

The Prime Place to Be on Larimer Square

As the weather gets warmer, the longing for fresh and citrusy seafood becomes more prominent. In a landlocked state you must be choosy when it comes to finding delicious and fresh seafood. That is why I was quick to accept an invitation to satisfy these cravings at Ocean Prime in Larimer Square at the heart…

Cocktail Game Strong

Hot new places are popping up all over Denver; it’s tough to keep up (especially if you still have your old favs!). These restaurants and bars ALL talk a big game, but when it comes to a really great drink how do you know what’s actually worth a visit on Friday night? The ladies at…

Denver’s Got the Brunchies

Let’s be straight forward, this list was compiled due to a sincere passion for brunch paired with an unwillingness to be patient on weekend mornings. Thus, for brunching times when the lines are simply  too long at a Denver staple (Snooze, Jelly, Sassafras, Denver Biscuit Company, etc.), opt for these equally delicious and somewhat under the radar options. You’ll be glad you…
