Denver Union Station
Established in 1881 as a train station for Colorado’s largest city, Denver Union Station remains the central transportation hub of the city while also becoming a shopping, dining, and entertainment venue. This Classical and Romanesque style building is gorgeous, to say the least. Towering structures, modern aesthetics, and traditional styles mix to make an alluring personality that is both old and new. For a quick meal with your group, a free ride downtown, or a luxurious afternoon, Denver Union Station is the place to be.
Explore this historic Denver attraction and sample the new shops for a unique glimpse into what Denver really is. Grab a fresh bouquet of flowers at Bloom, some artsy gifts or hip crafts at 5 Green Boxes, or pick up a book at Tattered Cover while you’re waiting for the train. When you have a minute, sit down at one of the delicious restaurants that range in style and cuisine from burgers to luxurious 5-star seafood. Try Snooze, an A.M. eatery, for mouthwatering French Toast, crepes, pancakes and more. If you’re here for lunch, Acme Burger and Brat Corporation is highly rated and afterward, stop by Milkbox Ice Creamery for a cone or cup. Dinner brings you more choices in the way of fancy eating, especially at Stoic & Genuine and Mercantile where organic ingredients, luxury, and class are philosophies to live by.
