Denver’s Kevin Taylor Restaurant Group will open a new restaurant and beer hall in the just-announced Stanley Marketplace at 2501 Dallas Street in Aurora, just a few feet from the southern border of Stapleton.
Unlike Taylor’s other Denver restaurants, which include Palettes at the Denver Art Museum, Kevin Taylor’s at the Opera House and Limelight Supper Club & Lounge, this restaurant and beer hall will exist in a much more casual, industrial atmosphere, highlighting the architecture of the former Stanley Aviation Building, where airplane ejector seats were manufactured for roughly 50 years. Located in the southwest corner of the building, the restaurant will boast views of the Rockies, Westerly Creek and much of the 22 acre-park on which the marketplace is situated.
Like the design, the cuisine will be presented in a dialed down, approachable way, but will continue to feature the high-quality ingredients for which Kevin Taylor Restaurant Group is known. The menu will offer an abundance of reasonably-priced items made with sustainably and locally-sourced produce, as well as craft beer and local wines and spirits.
“I’m excited to move forward with our next venture in a different way,” says Taylor. “Approachable restaurants are the future, and I believe we can provide the level of cuisine for which we’re known, but in a way that is appealing to everyone, and fits within Stanley, and the surrounding community, perfectly.”
The group, which also operates several catering operations within the Denver Performing Arts Complex, Denver Art Museum and Clyfford Still Museum, will also provide cuisine and service for the indoor and outdoor event spaces within Stanley.
Comprised of more than 100,000 sq. ft. on 22 acres, the adaptive reuse Stanley Marketplace development aims to become the community’s new centerpiece, and will also be home to a spacious community park, office space and a wide array of dining, shopping and recreational offerings. The marketplace and restaurant is slated to open in mid to late 2015.
