CHAPTER 6  |  EXPLORING B&GC - A MAD MEN INSPIRED SECRET SPEAKEASY


Saturday night I went on a little adventure to discover a hidden, somewhat secret, underground, speakeasy in Denver called B&GC.  

Once you find the golden doorbell, you are greeted by a host who will escort you down a set of long stairs and around some back hallways to a large, extravagant door.

Behind which, a romantic cocktail bar appears before you that will immediately transport you to the Mad Men era of the 1960's with glassware and cocktail presentations that exude class and elegance!

The bartenders, we had Marcelo, are full of personality and truly know the art of mixing a fantastic cocktail!  Whether choosing one of their signature cocktails, which they change every season, going with a classic or having them create something special, as I did, they won't disappoint!

The experience, quality of cocktails and overall feel warrant the $15 price tag, similar to New York City pricing.  However, I'd go as far as to say, they are better, and most definitely prettier than those in the Big Apple!

So if you are in Denver, I think it is a go-to and fun experience that you should definitely add to your to-do list...if you can locate it and get it, but that's half the fun!
