DENVER — Huckleberry Roasters and The Perfect Petal are now open inside Dairy Block, Denver’s newest micro-district redevelopment in the heart of lower downtown. Dairy Block offers 66,000 total square feet of prime restaurant and retail space. Developed by McWHINNEY, Sage Hospitality and Grand American, Inc., Dairy Block is a mixed-used redevelopment of the LoDo block that once housed Denver’s Windsor Dairy. The soul of Dairy Block will be The Alley – a lively micro-district and experience like no other will run from 18th and 19th between Blake and Wazee Streets.
Open daily from 6 a.m. to 6 p.m., Huckleberry Roasters at Dairy Block offers a variety of coffee, espresso and tea drinks along with specialty coffee shakes and smoothies. Huckleberry is also serving an assortment of toast and waffles, including avocado toast, seasonal hummus toast and a Noosa yoghurt topped waffle with seasonal fruit & maple drizzle, among others.
The second location of Denver’s popular Highland Square flower and gift shop, The Perfect Petal at Dairy Block offers fresh floral arrangements as well as potted succulents and homeware. Open daily from 9 a.m. to 8 p.m., The Perfect Petal carries greeting cards, jewelry, journals, trinkets and more. Several Colorado product lines are represented, including lotions and soaps from Formulary and Zents.
Also opening at Dairy Block by late spring will be Milk Market, a food hall by Denver Chef Frank Bonanno featuring 15 restaurants and bar concepts. Bonanno will also be opening Engine Room Pizza, which will serve pizza by the slice facing The Alley, and Mr. Pink’s, an underground lounge, will open off of The Alley that serves delicious food & drinks, with live music nightly, a Seven Grand whiskey bar and a retail space by the founder of the popular Denver Flea marketplace.
Dairy Block is already home to Sage Restaurant Group’s Kachina Southwestern Grill and Poka Lola Social Club by Restaurateur Peter Karpinski. Guests of these establishments will be able to take their cocktails and beers into the Dairy Block Alley once it is fully open this spring.
Also now open at Dairy Block is The Maven Hotel, an independent, modern hotel delivering 172 industrial-chic guest rooms and an energetic lobby managed by Sage Hospitality.
