The Colburn Hotel and History of Charlie Brown’s | Capitol Hill Denver

Hotel bar, Charlie Brown’s, boasts a famous literary background. Charlie Brown’s occupies the northwest corner of the Colburn Hotel, a former hangout for the Beats: Jack Kerouac, Allen Ginsberg and their merry band of artistic free spirits.


I can remember going to Charlie Browns as a kid in the late’70s with my parents.  The place is almost the exact same.  It has the old pub style charm that is missing in a lot of new bars these days.  It’s Denver’s “Cheers” but with a more diverse crowd now, which is a good thing.  You can go to Charlie Browns and never be bored, hungry or thirsty.  The prices are fair and the food selection is still vast.  I still enjoy the piano bar and singing.  I had the patty melt last time I went and guess what?  It tasted just like it did 20 years ago.  Good old fashioned fun!!!
