Former Saint

Former Saint Craft Kitchen and Taps tempts hotel guests and Denver locals alike with an adventuresome Colorado-inspired menu. Delectable meals are perfectly complemented with local craft beers and cocktails. Enjoy Life in the Spirit.

Van Leeuwen

Van Leeuwen Ice Cream started as an ice cream truck in New York City and now has shops in multiple states. Their focus is to bring you actual ice cream with good, and healthy ingrediants.

What could be happier than that magic combination of milk, cream, eggs, and cane sugar (or coconuts, cashews and oats for our vegan friends)? Yes, our ice cream has fat. And that’s okay. It’s good-good, not good-bad.

Chez Maggy

Chez Maggy is a traditional French brasserie, reinvented for the Queen City. It’s a love-letter to Margaret, Ludo’s mother-in-law who lived life to help others right here in Colorado. It’s also a celebration of the land of Ludo’s childhood: Burgundy, a place steeped in natural beauty and a deep connection to the Earth. Chez Maggy pays homage to Ludo’s French roots while synthesizing his rich culinary traditions with the naturally-abundant ingredients of the Mountain West. At Chez Maggy, we reimagine Continental Cuisine at the Continental Divide.

RoseBud Ice Cream

RoseBud Ice Cream was born in the kitchen of Sam Rose’s childhood home when a friend exclaimed “you could sell this!” over bowls of homemade ice cream. Each pint of RoseBud Ice Cream contains more than just artisanal ingredients, they include the memory of friends coming together on a warm summer afternoon. When you enjoy RoseBud Ice Cream we want you to be transported to moments of everyday happiness both past and new. RoseBud Ice Cream was made to make a bad day good and a good day great!

Clairette’s menu is inspired from tradition European recipes, with a focus on seasonal ingredients and bold flavors, utilizing fresh-prep techniques to ensure the highest quality offerings from kitchen to table

We Knead Donut

Specialty fresh, handmade, family-owned, and keeping the old-fashioned award-winning recipe is their business philosophy. Donuts need to be the donut that you used to taste when you were little and they still keep the old and right way to make donuts by mixing, kneading by hand, pressing, proofing, and frying in clean, fresh oil every morning.


Forget Me Not

Forget Me Not is designed with intention and care; it’s not just about being a cocktail bar. Walking through our door opens the invitation to brighten the day; sow the seeds of celebration, or to be a kind ear when needed. We invest in the relationship between guests and bartenders to create a space where connections are made. People feel rooted when they are here and that follows them when they leave. It is a place where memories can be made, celebrated, and created anew…
