Denver, CO 80216
After the Portulaca Cafe, a decades-old Slavic speakeasy in Globeville, closed in 2008, the White Owl moved in and transformed the space into a cozy dive bar. In 2011, the metal artist Shane Evans took it a step further, dubbed it Crash 45 and started making improvements such as expanding the patio, adding a room for music and DJs, and fitting the space with his own works made from vintage motorcycle parts, recycled objects, discarded bicycles and old truck bodies. Wade Kirwan, who worked for years as executive chef at Vesta Dipping Grill, heads up a small menu that includes burgers and sandwiches.
