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!!!
