The winner of our SuperPub Poll™, Crimson and Gold Tavern, suddenly shuttered last week. A note on the door said C&G would re-open for this upcoming weekend’s hockey series against Niagara, Unfortunately, the closure will impact one of the busiest times of the year for the bar business, Halloween.
The Crimson and Gold Tavern is in close proximity to the Ritchie Center and provides an ideal spot for food and drinks for sports fans before and after games. C&G has a 3.9 rating on Yelp.
While we could not find the exact reason for the closure, C&G’s close proximity to a University likely explains the reason for the suspension. The C&G’s website does not cite a reason for the closure and phone calls went unanswered. Denver Licensing Center lists violations hearings only through 2018. C&G was not named during any hearings for the 2018 calendar year.
The drinking age always seems to be a hot-button issue around college campuses and DU is no exception. We want to hear what you have to say regarding the current drinking age in the Poll below.
Purchasing vaping products and Hookah Lounges have recently been changed from 18 to 21 years of age.
We are hoping for a speedy reopening of Crimson and Gold Tavern, especially with a busy hockey season and holidays in front of us.
