Dierks Bentley’s beloved gastropub, Dierks Bentley’s Whiskey Row, is headed to Denver, Colorado.
The superstar, along with Riot Hospitality (RHG), revealed plans for the expansion last week. Construction will begin in January 2020 in the downtown historic district at 1942-1946 Market St. The two-story structure will feature an extended patio and rooftop addition.
“Every Whiskey Row is located in a city and state that is very special to me. Our first one opened in my hometown of Scottsdale, Arizona six years ago and our most recent location is in my adopted hometown of Nashville, TN,” Bentley shared in a statement. “I couldn’t be more excited about Whiskey Row now having a home in Denver as well. Colorado has always been a big part of my life and continues to be so as a place where I write and record music, spend time with family and put on our Seven Peaks Festival. Selfishly, opening a Whiskey Row there just gives me more excuses to head to the mountains!”
The new Denver location marks the fifth Dierks Bentley’s Whiskey Row in the country. A grand opening date will be revealed in the coming months.
