Exploring Denver: Union Station

The Union Station was the first train station in Denver built in 1868, which connected Denver to the main transcontinental line at Cheyenne, Wyoming. It is located at 17th and Wynkoop Streets in the present-day LoDo district and includes the historic terminal building, a train shed, a 22-gate underground bus facility, and light rail station.⠀ ⠀ Now, Denver Union Station served as the catalyst for a fully-revitalized neighborhood and urban transit hub. Boasting award-winning chef-driven restaurants, local retail shops, and the luxurious Crawford Hotel, Denver Union Station is an iconic gathering place for locals and visitors alike.⠀ ⠀ Here are my restaurant recommendations:⠀ - Mercantile is lavish restaurant offers a re-imagined take on American comfort food⠀ - Ultreia is a romantic restaurant that serves Spanish tapas, Portuguese petiscos⠀ - Snooze is a creative and energetic brunch restaurant with incredible AM cocktails⠀ - Hopdoddy is where you go when a salad just doesn’t cut it and you need a big, juicy burger in your hands. - Cooper Lounge is a secret-but-no-so-secret lounge located on the mezzanine overlooking The Great Hall for delicious cocktails and small bites.⠀
