Right as the Denver Broncos are headed to the Super Bowl, the downtown outpost of Elway's steak houses, co-owned by Denver Broncos quarterback and NFL Hall of Fame inductee, John Elway, is undergoing renovations. The make-up efforts of the space housed inside the Ritz Carlton Hotel are led by Colorado-based design and architecture firm, Rowland+Broughton.
The goal is to add a variety of new features, expand the bar, and enhance the space with a new fire place. There will be a new chef's table which will accommodate up to 12 guests with a private viewing window into the bustling kitchen.
The lounge area will soon act as an extension of the restaurant and will feature a stone fireplace along with community-style high-top tables and banquette-style seating. The bar itself will expand: upgraded tables and stools and banquette seating along the curved wall will be incorporated to accommodate more patrons.
All new seating areas will come equipped with charging stations while the entire restaurant will continue to offer Wi-Fi access. Because most of the work is being done overnight, Elway's Downtown remains open for the duration of the renovation.
