Denver Botanic Gardens unveils The Hive Garden Bistro, a refined alfresco dining experience alongside the peaceful Monet Pool. The new restaurant is in the same location as the previous Monet Café but features a larger deck, as well as an expanded menu, serving snacks, lunch and dinner. Catering by Design operates The Hive.
Hive features a large menu of made-to-order sandwiches, burgers, soups and salads. Gourmet wood-fired pizzas will be introduced soon. A children’s menu is also available. Soft-serve ice cream and rotating agua fresca flavors such as strawberry mint, cucumber basil and lime tarragon are also offered. Produce from the adjacent Le Potager Garden and the Chatfield CSA are incorporated into the menu when possible, creating a sustainable, farm-to-table dining experience. Many other ingredients including meat and produce are locally sourced, a few of the fresh herbs and greens will even be harvested from the garden when available.
Summer hours: The Hive is open daily 10:30 a.m. – 8:30 p.m. through September 28. Last entry to the Gardens is 8 p.m. On early closure days for special events, The Hive closes at 3 p.m. The Hive reopens at 6 p.m. on York Street Summer Concert nights for pre-concert meals or to-go food to eat during the concert.
Late fall hours: The restaurant is open daily 10:30 a.m. - 4:30 p.m.
