Dreaming of Office Supplies
As the temperature drops and the leaves fall, an afternoon drink in a warm setting where you can snuggle up to the bar and let a mixologist awake you from your work day slumber may indeed sound like a fantasy. At The Corner Office in downtown Denver, fantasies come true and are available to taste in the form of eccentric cocktails and whimsical martinis. Wine and beer are also always on the list as well, but if you want to get a real taste of The Corner Office, then cocktails and martinis should be your drink of choice.
Every one of The Corner Office’s cocktails are crafted with a theme in mind. For a seasonal start that will help you to savor all that fall has to offer, try the “Remember Autumn” made with a sweet and sour mix of Buffalo Trace Bourbon, apricot, lemon and raw sugar. Of course, if you are need of a little bit of romance in your day, there is always the “Johnny Boy” composed of the quality Laphroaig 10 year Scotch, hot jalapeno and sweet caramel. However, if you are feeling too soft hearted, this is not the drink for you as indicated right on the Corner Office menu that reads, “This is a sweet, smoky, spicy, salty, and intense cocktail not for the faint of heart.” For something that won’t pull on your heart strings, sip upon “Life’s a Peach,” a sure winner that will make anyone’s day look a little brighter. “Life’s a Peach” comes in the form of a medley of Seagram’s Vodka, lemon, cardamom, soda water, and of course, fresh peach! Once the experimenting with cocktails is finished, you can always reach for a drink to begin the daydreaming such as the martini known as “Flower Child.” With Elderflower, Green Chartreuse, Creme de Violette, Sauvignon Blanc, and lemon, this drink has the power to make you “dream, dream, dream” like the Everly Brothers do HERE.
For the non-dreamers, bottles of Angry Orchard Crisp Apple Beer from Cincinnati, Ohio are available for a bit of a fall kick. Cans are also available for those seeking the more classic form of drinking beer. The Corner Office features a long list of Colorado beers served in cans including Boulder’s White Rascal Belgian Ale, Dale’s Pale Ale from Lyons, Golden’s Coors Banquet, and Durango’s Modus Hoperandi I.P.A. among others. The Colorado beer continues on draft with Tivoli Helles Lager made just minutes away from The Corner Office, and Mama’s Little Yella Pils produced in Lyons, Colorado.
Whether you are looking for a new cocktail, a means to dream, or a taste of some fine Colorado beer, The Corner Office has all the office supplies you are looking for. All together, The Corner Office puts on a fantastical show that is best witnessed from a cozy bar seat on a cool autumn day. If this sounds tantalizing, then perhaps you can simply tell your boss that you are headed down to The Corner Office to get your much needed office supplies for the day. It would not be a complete lie, after all.
The Corner Office is located at 1401 Curtis St. Denver CO 80202; Tel: 303-825-6500.
