My favorite place to drink absinthe in Denver is Z Cuisine A' Cote': their small food menu is fantastic and their absinthe selection is wide: along with the standard US releases like LTV, Leopold Bros, St George, Marteau and Kübler I have seen La Fee, Libertine (a Fougerolles blanche in Colorado! Awesome.) and a few others.

I was introduced to this place by a beautiful pastis-pounding redhead and every time she brings me along I end up in drunkenly serious discussions about absinthe with the owners: they really love La Fee Verte and it shows. There is a neon green absinthe sign hanging behind the bar which, when lit, indicates happy hour has arrived; their finest "martini" is even called 'the Green Fairy" and is made with orange vodka, absinthe and handcrushed basil. It takes about ten minutes to make but is like kissing the Springtime. It is really a very charming little bistro.

Their website is www.zcuisineonline.com

Thank you for sharing! :cheers: I'll admit, I was raised in a bar, half the time anyway, but even as a younger person I tend to stray away from that scene. I'm not single and it's too expensive for me, besides you can no longer smoke in 'em & that's just wrong weird to me even though I no longer do, smoke that is :laugh: . So I guess it goes w/o saying that I don't know of any decent bars that actually serve absinthe. I will be checking this place out soon.
I talk like a drunk man walks, in every which way but where he is headed.

I was in "Z Cuisine" last month, I loved the place.... I did not have a dinner, but ate some nice onion soup and a vegetables mix with cheese typically French.... very good ! And I drunk the Libertine. I had to explain the waitress that I did not want to fire the absinthe......... but I highly recommend this restaurant. It is located on the region called "Highlands" with several other good restaurants, galleries and a nice night life...

I know this might not be the best place to post this topic, but seeing as to how the Denver section is dead in 'Absinthe in Cities Around The World' I wanted to make sure all my fellow Coloradans knew about this. "The Foundrey" bar on Pearl Street Mall in Boulder, Colorado closed its doors this last November and was bought out by Eric Turner and Alfonso Natarelli, co-owners of the Green Fairy Bar in Copper Mt. CO., and have since then decided to turn it into a European/Absinthe themed restaurant/bar/nightclub. I'm stoked!!! Anyone else you lives in and around Colorado let me know what you think so we can get a group together and check out the grand opening, which is apparently at the end of this summer.

Here is the link to the article:

Cool! Thanks for the info and keep us posted Nate, I'd like to meet up for a drink when they open. My oldest is at CU so I find myself in Boulder from time to time.

Has anyone been to the Paris Wine Bar next to Paris on the Platte? Apparently they have some absinthe as it's listed in cocktails. I haven't been there in quite a while, so I don't know what brands they have or if they fire it. Has anyone been there recently?

They put a wine bar next to that place! Wow, I should've stopped by last year when I was in Denver several times a week.

Makes me miss Paris on The Poudre a bit.

Just a question (a pre-coffee question)...two parter.
Where was it before and why is it not in 'Absinthe in Cities all over the Planet' thread ?

That's a jazz club? I always thought it was something else from the neon light exterior and the name. I may have to check it out sometime.

Wow, I did not know Dazzle had started serving absinthe. I will have to drop in. Tatan, I highly recommend Dazzle if you like jazz. One of the many great jazz clubs in Denver. The food is pretty good, the music great, and it has a nice atmosphere.

It's been a while, but I thought I'd pop in (or on?) to say that Mondo Vino in the Highlands neighborhood of Denver has started carrying Vieux Carre and La Clandestine in addition to Leopolds, Lucid, and other, less reputable brands. Now if only I wasn't broke...

Woo-hoo! That's a stroll of a few blocks for me ... :cheers:

After concerts I often grab a bite to eat at a nearby restaurant, most of which stay open for the post-show crowds. I've noticed Leopold Bros. Verte on a lot of drink menus. Many times it's the only absinthe.

I can't really remember specific names but a year ago this wasn't happening so check those drink menus!

My favorite "after concert, food before the long drive home" place.
Hence why I never checked out the booze portion of the menu, good catch. My buddy drives next time.
