Denver legend

A trip to Denver without a stop at the Cruise room is a crime. Unlike any other. Arrive early for a seat!

The bartenders are the best! We had great cocktails and the bartenders and manager were so friendly.

The Cruise Room is my favorite bar in metro Denver. Located in one of the oldest hotels in the city, it defines the word, "classy." Soft lighting, 20's ambiance, skilled bartenders, and delicious cocktails. Makes you feel like you are somewhere in downtown Manhattan. Love this place and hope it never changes!

The most beautiful bar in town and one of the most beautiful anywhere -- But since the McCormick's team left it has slipped from five stars to one -- the drinks which used to be so good now are terrible -- food is awful - hopefully Sage will realize they have created a travesty and get in some folks who...

The pics don't lie and there hundreds on trip advisor alone. Drinks are well made by friendly bartenders who work quickly without marking you feel rushed. The place is tiny so if you want a seat or table go at an obviously slow time or find a seat in the lobby with your drink. Worth the trip for sure! 🌟

Love the vibe of this 1930s lounge which has changed little since the recall of Prohibition. The martinis are consistently the best with those beautiful ice crystals on top. You can order dinner or appetizers from McCormicks and stay put in the lounge to eat. The bartender and wait staff are friendly and offer great service. The lounge opens at... More

The cruise room opened the day after prohibition was repealed and they, thankfully, have done little more than upkeep to the great art deco neon light filled, Queen Mary inspired interior. This place is awesome! No pretense just great cocktails and able staff. Combine that with great happy hour offerings from the adjoining McCormicks and you've hit the jackpot. Located... More

I have visited the Cruise Room many, many times over the past 25 years and have never had a bad experience. The bar itself is simply beautiful and has a rich history. The Cruise Room opened the day after Prohibition was repealed in 1933 and has maintained its gorgeous art deco motif ever since. They offer a variety of cocktails,... More

This place is awesome! It's right in the Oxford hotel (just off the lobby) and has a total prohibition vibe right down to the decor (although they say it's modeled after the bar on the Queen Mary....hmmm). The drinks are really good and the staff is fun to interact with. It's not a huge place so if you have a... More

The most beautiful bar in town and one of the most beautiful anywhere -- food can be ordered from McCormick's if you're hungry -- they make a nice cocktail and have a great wine list -- it ain't cheap --
