Westword's Description

In 2009, when Stranahan's Colorado Whiskey moved its distilling operations into the old Heavenly Daze Brewery space, Chris Rippe opened the Rackhouse Pub in what had been Heavenly Daze's restaurant. The place draws its inspiration from both the rough and refined spirit of whiskey. "Rackhouse" refers to the part of a distillery where spirits are racked in barrels and stored, so barrels feature prominently in the decor. But this is no dusty cellar: Rows of leather-topped booths and polished wood tables fill the cavernous dining room; a massive and ornate bar, surfaced with granite, lines one wall. That bar's spirit focus is whiskey, of course, supplemented by twenty tap lines that pour a well-rounded selection of Colorado craft beer in addition to one out-of-state brew. The substantial drinks list is supplemented by a board featuring hearty pub fare that the kitchen has attempted to refine with local ingredients; in addition to burgers, pizzas and wings, the menu also features such trendy items as bone marrow and lobster mac and cheese.

    Cool pub with plenty of parking. Open mic night is always a blast.

    Winner of Westword's Best of Denver 2010 - Best Chili in a Cup!

    Jeebus says if you don't order the mac and cheese that you're wasting your time on this planet.

    Some of the best chili you'll ever have and a beer list most would envy. Definitely eat; this is not traditional pub fare.

  • Dustin V. on 03/25/10

    Think the Mac n Cheese is already the best thing on the menu? Add green Tobasco. OMFG.

    Make sure you tell your server you checked in at the beginning for the four square happy hour special.
