Projected to open in late October, the Breckenridge-Wynkoop companies are rolling out another restaurant concept, Session Kitchen, at 1518 South Pearl Street in Platte Park.
Session Kitchen is about globally inspired cuisine with innovative portioning. The restaurant will feature farm-fresh, seasonal fare served in iron-clad cookware and meant to be shared with friends after a day well lived. The casual, east-meets-west environment will include seven permanent, original art installations that will showcase both local and international street artists. Expect eighteen taps of craft cocktails, beer, and wines to be served throughout the restaurant and at three bars.
Session gave Eater a sneak peek of its construction, and exclusive details about the new space.
Session's nearly 8,000 square feet showcase the Park Bar, for which all 60 barstools have been custom-made entirely out of old bike parts. These barstools, one of the restaurant's art installations, reflect the "après life" vibe (as opposed to just après ski or après bike ride) that Session is going for. Its design is intended to be evocative of the state's lifestyle. For example many of the welded metal materials used to create the space could have been found in a terrain park for skiing and snowboarding.
The primary feature of the new venue is the Session Bar, a bar within a bar that is located on the upper floor of the Park Bar. The luxurious 15-seats in this intimate bar are florescent blue, and from them guests will have a bird's eye view of the entire space at Session.
Stay tuned for more about Session Kitchen's uniquely portioned menu, the other art installments at the venue, and its official opening date.
