The Crimson Room is one of Larimer Square’s best kept secrets. Hidden behind a large red door and down a set of stairs, is an intimate cocktail lounge that features live music nightly. Jazz and acoustic sets transfuse the elegant space while guests enjoy delicious small bites and desserts. Yet, what sets The Crimson Room apart is the exquisite and unparalleled drinks that are crafted table-side on vintage bar carts. The Crimson Room boasts an ambiance that is timeless and vibrant making it one of a kind in Denver.
