The 16th Street Mall in Downtown Denver is a tourist hot spot as well as a local favorite for dining out, people watching, and shopping. Amongst the chain restaurants and busy stores is locally owned and operated powerhouse Marlowe’s (501 16th Street). Since 1982 it has been one of Denver’s most popular gathering spots for power lunches, romantic dinners, and happy hour.
The interior of Marlowe’s is all hand crafted and the cherry wood bar adds to its sophisticated vibe. They have a very nice covered patio that overlooks the mall, perfect for taking in the beautiful Mile High afternoons; and a spacious upstairs sitting area that works well for private parties.
Happy hour is every day from 3PM-7PM with a late happy hour running from 10PM until close. Featured drinks include $4 premium well drinks (3 Olives vodka, Beefeater gin, Bacardi Rum, Dewar’s Scotch, Jim Beam, and Margaritaville Tequila), $4 Long Island Ice Teas, $4 martinis, $4 wine by the glass, and ½ price on all draft beers. Marlowe’s also has a great happy hour food menu to please your hungry palate. The $3 Buffalo wings are a steal while the $8 calamari is one of my personal favorites.
Weekends at Marlowe’s are just as popular as the weeknights. Brunch is featured on both Saturday and Sunday. They serve only the best fresh, local product. Some of the menu highlights include both the crab and Mediterranean skillets, build-your-own omelets, and steak and eggs. And for those looking to get an early buzz or continue the one from the night before, Marlowe’s steps up their game by featuring $9 bottomless mimosas and $3 bloody Marys.
Whether you are craving lobster, steak, a stiff martini, or just a great place to forget about the work week, Marlowe’s has made it their business for close to 30 years to make sure you leave their establishment with a full belly and a smile on your face. Just look for the giant martini glass on the 16th Street Mall.
