Want to experience all the best of Americana in just one night, and in the span of a couple of blocks? Spend an American Night in Cherry Creek with me! From a hidden speakeasy to a blowout modern American dinner, you’ll get all the classics with this Mile High Wanderings guide.
The revival of so many American classics here in the heart of Denver has been one of my favorite trends to watch grow and grow. From cocktails to modern American fare, I feel like every week there’s a new menu to tickle my taste buds with a whole new take on the American classics we all know and love.

I spent a night hitting some new places in Cherry Creek and experiencing new menus, and let me tell you, it was eye-opening.
