The Ultimate Office Dining Experience in Denver

If you have ever fantasized of turning your office into a lounge bar, where all of your coworkers can mingle over cocktails and wine during what is normally just a coffee break, then you understand the vision behind one of Denver’s trendiest new drinking wells, appropriately named The Corner Office.  As you and your coworkers pass through the doors of The Corner Office, you will be much obliged to loosen that tie or maybe untuck that shirt so that you may unleash the ropes, or worse chains, that have ensnared you down to your office chair for the last 8 hours.

With no ropes (or chains!) attached, you can snuggle up to the bar at The Corner Office and choose the drink that will mark the transition from the work office to The Corner Office.  The choice includes vino by the vasso (wine by the glass), canned and draft beers, many of which are local, “seasonal” martinis, and sexy, avant-garde cocktails.  They are all served up by a good looking, rather debonair bartender of whom looks strikingly similar to your office’s attractive mail carrier-or perhaps you are just still in the office haze.

Silenced by the resemblance, you agree to the “slinger’s choice,” a.k.a. “the bartender’s pick.”  Before you can think further, you become captivated by the sly moves of the bartender as he concocts the seasonal martini known as “the riddling fig,” made from an infusion of fig flavored vodka, benedictine, angostura bitters, and a touch of honey and lemon to balance it all out.

After you finish riddling, the bartender asks if you are ready for “breakfast & tiffany” composed of bacon bourbon, orange, angostura, and soda, complete with a drizzle of maple syrup.  Following a pause of hesitation, you decide ‘what the heck, I am at the office!.’  Replete with positive feelings rooted in rebellion, you take this experience one step further and order some of TCO’s “street food” in the form of a Baja fish taco piled high with guacamole.

For the best office experience in Denver, The Corner Office is your place.  No pen or paper is needed.

The Corner Office is located at 1401 Curtis Street Denver CO 80202; Tel: 303-825-6500; Hours: 7 am-10pm (11pm on Friday & Saturday).
