The Nickel restaurant, in the heart of Denver’s thriving Theatre District, is located in the iconic Hotel Teatro - A Denver Hotel. A chef-driven culinary concept, the menu draws inspiration from its Rocky Mountain heritage, incorporating locally sourced ingredients into rustic, stripped-down Colorado fare. The décor of The Nickel echos the menu, featuring textiles sourced from the Rocky Mountain region; custom-made furnishings and industrial materials with a simplistic, masculine feel.
This Denver Restaurant’s name pays homage to Hotel Teatro's storied past. With an original vault dating back to the property’s origins as Denver’s Tramway Building in 1911, the space was once used to collect nickels from customers riding streetcars.
In addition to executing the vision of the new Denver Restaurant, Thompson is conceptualizing each culinary detail throughout the property. This includes everything from the catering and in-room menus, to the extensive beverage program that includes a bar of house barrel-aged spirits and an experiential coffee and wine lounge.
With this new concept, Hotel Teatro welcomes guests and locals for everything from morning coffee to lunch options for business workers, brunch on the weekends and a free-spirited way to unwind in the evenings with this redesign.
“It’s a great pleasure to work alongside such a great, dedicated group of food and beverage professionals,” said Hotel Teatro General Manager David Coonan. “The space and unique food and beverage programming lends itself to the iconic hotel, and is a welcomed addition to the Denver culinary scene.”
