Dinner and theatre go together like cake and ice cream. You can enjoy each one alone, but they double the enjoyment when paired together. Downtown Denver offers a plethora of places to dine before the play, opera, ballet and symphony at the Denver Center for Performing Arts on 14th Avenue and Curtis St. or any of the smaller theatres in the area. Whether you drive, walk or ride the light rail to the theatre district, there’s a restaurant close by, and every server knows how to ensure you make curtain time. Some places offer a special pre-theatre menu; others serve happy hour apps for lighter dining, and still others entice you to stop by after the show for drinks and dessert. It all contributes to a fantastic cultural night out in the city. It does require a bit a planning on your part, so with this list of recommended restaurants are approximate times for walking to the theatre complex from each place.
