If this is your first time in Denver, you really should enjoy a meal that features locally sourced ingredients.  At The Nickel we take great pride in showcasing the best that this region has to offer, be it produce, meat, liquor, or locally roasted coffee beans.  Our chef has created a menu full of dishes that are familiar and unassuming, yet refined and multifaceted.  We’re known for our charcuterie, which can be ordered from a sushi bar style menu, allowing you to create your own selection.  Our list features fantastic imported and domestic offerings, including some choices that are made in-house.

If you want to get away from business for a few cocktails and small bites please join us for Social Hour, happening every day from 4 to 6 p.m. in our Barrel Bar or on the patio.  We suggest you try one of our barrel aged cocktails.  We’re known for these unique drinks and offer three types at a special price during Social Hour, plus a menu of many more.
