New Food Hall Opens in Greenwood Village
The highly-anticipated Grange Hall officially opens to the public today, Thursday, September 23, at 4 p.m., in the heart of the Denver Tech Center. The new food hall is located at 6575 Greenwood Plaza Boulevard, in the former C.B. & Potts outpost. Denver-based restaurant collection TAG Restaurant Group (TRG) founded by Chef Troy Guard, has partnered with Kevin Hawkins and Ken Himel on the project. The group has transformed the nearly 13,000-square-foot space into a community focused place to gather, eat and play.
Grange Hall’s culinary program includes a collective of artisan chefs and restaurant operators, all hand-picked by Troy Guard, presenting a balance of known and up-and-coming brands. The historic space also houses a show stopping outdoor patio, perfect for outdoor dining and taking in the spectacular views of Pike’s Peak; an event space that can be customized for events large and small; and guests can look forward to live music and community events on a regular basis. Another exciting addition is something unique compared to other food halls: the pop-up stall.
“The idea is that anyone could rent this stall and give their concept a try,” he explains, “Whether for a day, a week, a month. Specific plans for the pop-up stall are still in progress. “We want to open the space first, see how it goes and then do some fun experimenting,” Guard says.
The group is also excited to announce the launch of two new Troy Guard concepts: Crazy Love Pizza and Rado Burgers; along with a brand-new concept from the Mizu Izakaya team. The space is anchored by micro-brewery Little Dry Creek Brewery helmed by Head Brew Master Ty Nash; a spectacular central cocktail bar with libations curated by TRG Beverage Director Nikki Guard; and a food hall, which features nine stalls.
Dustin Maldonado, general manager, is a native New Yorker comes to Grange Hall with a wealth of knowledge and experience in the hospitality industry. After opening his own restaurant with friends in New York, Maldonado has developed a healthy passion for all things beer, wine and spirits related while working in multiple leadership roles and trainings with both Cicerone and Court of master Sommeliers. Dustin will oversee all aspects of Grange Hall—manage the partnership with food vendors, lead and execute the bar program, oversee events and strategic partnerships, and handle all guest services.
“I am so excited to be a part of this new concept with Troy and the team.I’m looking forward to establishing Grange Hall in the local community and making a positive impact that goes deeper than serving delicious food and bomb craft beer!” says Maldonado.
