Sneak Peek: Atomic Cowboy Now Open on Tennyson Street

The newest addition to the Berkeley dining scene brings high energy and great new options.

Fans of the Denver Biscuit Company and Fat Sully's Pizza now have a way to get their fix in North Denver as Atomic Cowboy opens its doors in the Berkeley neighborhood. The newest addition to the family of restaurants that includes the original on East Colfax and the 2013 second location on South Broadway opened its doors at 4275 Tennyson Street.

The space, originally a grocer for the neighborhood and most recently a dance studio, has been transformed with assistance from local designer Xan Creative. The goal was to honor the stunning volume and structure of the building that includes a wooden barnyard-style roof and exposed brick walls and create an inviting space reminiscent of the other two locations of the pizza-biscuit combo business. "We pulled a few of our signature moves into the new space - our stools and a few of the lights we use in every store," owner Drew Shader said. There are also red accent walls, inviting booths, and a neon Marlborough man looking over the open 3,000 square foot interior.

The menu mirrors what guests of Atomic Cowboy have grown to love. There are biscuit sandwiches and plates, as well as giant cinnamon rolls from the Denver Biscuit Company kitchen, New York-style pizza slices from Fat Sully's, and a fabulous rotating selection of craft beers, 30 of them on draft. There is also a small selection of wine that may grow based on the demands of the guests in the Berkeley neighborhood. The coffee comes from Boxcar Coffee Roasters and it is a unique signature blend created just for Atomic Cowboy.

The eatery and bar is open from 8 a.m. to 2 a.m. daily, but hours may adjust based on the dining needs of the neighborhood. The Biscuit Kitchen is open from 8 a.m. to 2 p.m. Monday through Friday, and 8 a.m. to 3 p.m. on the weekends. Fat Sully's Pizza is available 11 a.m. to 2 a.m. daily. Daily happy hours are from 3 to 6 p.m., and a late night happy hour runs from 10 p.m. to close on Sunday through Thursday.

Bonus: Atomic Cowboy has a parking lot reserved for its customers, in a neighborhood where finding a spot is a struggle. Also, a kids menu will be added to all three locations but will be first launched at the Tennyson outpost.
